“So I will kindle a fire [of war, conquest, and destruction] on the wall of Rabbah [in Ammon] And it shall devour its strongholds Amid war cries and shouts of alarm on the day of battle, And a tempest on the day of the whirlwind [when the enemy captures the city].
So I will send fire on the city wall of Rabbah that will ·destroy [consume; devour] its ·strong buildings [fortresses; palaces]. ·It will come during [L Amid shouting/war cries on] a day of battle, during a stormy day with ·strong winds [a whirlwind].
God’s Message: “Because of the three great sins of Ammon —make that four—I’m not putting up with her any longer. She ripped open pregnant women in Gilead to get more land for herself. For that, I’m burning down the walls of her capital, Rabbah, burning up her forts. Battle shouts! War whoops! with a tornado to finish things off! The king has been carted off to exile, the king and his princes with him.” God’s Decree. * * *
So I will send down fire on the wall that protects Rabbah, its only major city, and burn down all of its fortifications. With shouts and war cries on the day of battle, with a whirlwind in the midst of the storm,
And I shall kindle fire in the wall of Rabbah, and it shall devour the houses thereof, in yelling in the day of battle, and in whirlwind in the day of moving together. (And I shall send fire onto the city walls of Rabbah, and it shall devour its houses, and there shall be shouting on the day of battle, and in the great moving, or in the tumult, on the day of the whirlwind.)
