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.
This is what the LORD says: 'For three offenses of Gaza, and for four, I will not revoke its punishment,
Because they led into exile an entire population To turn them
over to Edom.
So I will send fire on the wall of Gaza And it will consume her citadels.
I will also eliminate every
inhabitant from Ashdod, As well as him who holds the scepter, from Ashkelon; And I will direct My power against Ekron, And the remnant of the Philistines will perish,' Says the Lord GOD.
