[YAH] says, โ€œThen, โ€˜son of Adamโ€™, [draw a map on Jerusalem's courthouse lawn.
On your map,]
mark out the two paths that the Babylonian Emperor's war-sword is taking [to conquer the promised land].
Both paths come forth out of one [northern] land.
Then set up [and engrave] a sign-post [warning of the war].
Display it at the head of the road into [Jerusalem] city.
