He said:
    The Lord roars from Zion.
    From Jerusalem he sends out his voice.
    The pastures of the shepherds dry up,[a]
    and the top of Mount Carmel withers.

Judgment Against Aram

This is what the Lord says:
    Because of three sins[b] of Damascus,
    because of four, I will not hold back judgment,
    because they cut up Gilead with iron threshing boards.[c]
So I will send fire against the house of Hazael,
    and it will consume the fortresses of Ben Hadad.
