“And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart,”
King James Version (KJV)
9:9 Know - They shall know whether my word be true or false. Even - The people of the ten tribes, and particularly Ephraim, the proudest of them all. Samaria - The strongest place, and the seat of the king and court.
