“They cried there, ‘Pharaoh king of Egypt is destroyed and is merely a loud noise;
He has let the appointed time [of opportunity] pass by!’
“As I live,” says the King,
Whose name is the Lord of hosts,
“Surely like [a]Tabor among the mountains
Or like Carmel by the sea,
So shall he [the great king of Babylon] come.
“O you daughter who dwells in Egypt and you who dwell with her,
Prepare yourselves [with all you will need] to go into exile,
For Memphis will become desolate;
It will even be burned down and without inhabitant.
- Jeremiah 46:18 Tabor and Carmel are landmark mountains in Israel.
