“As for Ephraim, their glory shall fly away like a bird, from the birth, and from the womb, and from the conception.”
King James Version (KJV)
9:11 Their glory - Their children or posterity, which was the glory of Israel. Shall fly - It is proverbial, and speaks a sudden loss of children. From the birth - As soon as born. From the womb - Their mothers shall not bring their fruit alive into the world. The conception - Their wives shall not conceive.
