Chapter 3

12 All thy strong holds shall be like fig trees with the firstripe figs: if they be shaken, they shall even fall into the mouth of the eater. 13 Behold, thy people in the midst of thee are women: the gates of thy land shall be set wide open unto thine enemies: the fire shall devour thy bars.

Chapter 3

12 All your fortresses are fig trees with figs that ripened first; when shaken, they fall -- right into the mouth of the eater!
13 Look, your troops are like women among you; your land's city gates are wide open to your enemies. Fire will devour the bars of your gates.
New Living Translation

Chapter 3

12 All your fortresses will fall. They will be devoured like the ripe figs that fall into the mouths of those who shake the trees. 13 Your troops will be as weak and helpless as women. The gates of your land will be opened wide to the enemy and set on fire and burned.
English Standard Version
