Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the downfall of the state of Ephraim and the Conquest of Samaria. After the conquest of Damascus in the year 732 v. Chr. the situation in the Syrian-Palestinian political system remained unchanged at first. Intervention in the fabric of small states on the ground of Syria and Palestine had a crippling effect on the sustained efforts of emancipation of the vassals result. This also applies to Judah and Ephraim rump state, both remained in vassalage relationship against Assyria, and took no attempt to throw off the shackles of the Neo-Assyrian empire. Consequently, the prophet seems to have expected the strike against Jerusalem not directly from Samaria, but on the detour via the coastal plain. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Damascus; Ephraim; Neo-Assyrian empire; Samaria; Syrian-Palestinian political system
