They enter Aiath; they pass through Migron; they store

supplies at Micmash. They go over the pass, and say, ‘We will

camp overnight at Geba.’ Ramah trembles; Gibeah of Saul

flees. Cry out, O Daughter of Gallim! Listen, O Laishah! Poor

Anathoth! Madmenah is in flight; the people of Gebim take

cover. This day they will halt at Nob; they will shake their fist

at the mount of the Daughter of Zion, at the hill of Jerusalem”

(Isa. 10:28-32).

From the book, Thru the Bible With J. Vernon McGee

Dr. McGee comments on the above passages: “This is a re-

markable section of prophecy. It gives geographical locations,

all of them north of Jerusalem, and it shows the route taken by

Assyria and of the future invader from the north… The invader

comes from the land of Magog (see Ezek. 38:39).

“Now notice the places mentioned: ‘Aiath’ is about fifteen

miles north of Jerusalem. ‘Migron’ is south of Aiath and is the

pass where Jonathan got a victory over the Philistines (see 1

Sam. 14). I understand that General Allenby secured a victory

over Turkey in the same place. ‘Geba’ and ‘Ramah’ are about

six miles north of Jerusalem. ‘Anathoth’ was about three miles

north of Jerusalem. This is the home of the prophet Jeremiah.

‘Laish’ is in the extreme north of Palestine, in the tribe of Dan.

‘Madmenah’ (dunghill) is a garbage dump north of Jerusalem.

‘Gebim’ is probably north of Jerusalem. The exact site is not

known. ‘Nob’ is the last place mentioned, and it is north of the

city and in sight of Jerusalem.
