This verse may be rendered, "In that day they (people) shall come to thee from Assyria and the fenced cities; and from the fortress (probably Pelusium at the entrance of Egypt), even to the river (Euphrates)," etc. The expressions employed in this prophecy appear to be too strong for the events which transpired after the Babylonian captivity; and seem to refer to the future restoration of Israel, after their land has lain desolate for ages.
