Judgement on Israel’s Neighbours

And he said:

The Lord roars from Zion,
    and utters his voice from Jerusalem;
the pastures of the shepherds wither,
    and the top of Carmel dries up.

Thus says the Lord:
For three transgressions of Damascus,
    and for four, I will not revoke the punishment;[a]
because they have threshed Gilead
    with threshing-sledges of iron.
So I will send a fire on the house of Hazael,
    and it shall devour the strongholds of Ben-hadad.
