And they ascended by the south, and came unto Hebron; where Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the children of Anak, were
. (Now Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)
Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in
the field of Zoan.
How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan:
Surely the princes of Zoan are
fools, the counsel of the wise counsellers of Pharaoh is become brutish: how say ye unto Pharaoh, I am
the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings?
The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived; they have also seduced Egypt, even they that are
the stay of the tribes thereof.
For his princes were at Zoan, and his ambassadors came to Hanes.
And I will make Pathros desolate, and will set fire in Zoan, and will execute judgments in No.
