The words of Amos, who was among the sheepherders from Tekoa, which he saw in visions
concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam son of Joash, king of Israel, two years before the earthquake.
And he said, 'The LORD roars from Zion, And from Jerusalem He utters His voice; And the shepherds’ pasture grounds mourn, And the summit of Carmel dries up.'
This is what the LORD says: 'For three offenses of Damascus, and for four, I will not revoke its punishment,
Because they threshed Gilead with iron sledges.
So I will send fire upon the house of Hazael, And it will consume the citadels of Ben-hadad.
I will also break the gate
bar of Damascus, And eliminate every
inhabitant from the Valley of Aven, As well as him who holds the scepter, from Beth-eden; So the people of Aram will be exiled to Kir,' Says the LORD.
