Amos 1:4-6 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

So I will send a fire upon the house of Haz′ael,
    and it shall devour the strongholds of Ben-ha′dad.
I will break the bar of Damascus,
    and cut off the inhabitants from the Valley of Aven,[a]
and him that holds the scepter from Beth-eden;
    and the people of Syria shall go into exile to Kir,”
                says the Lord.

Thus says the Lord:

“For three transgressions of Gaza,
    and for four, I will not revoke the punishment;[b]
because they carried into exile a whole people
    to deliver them up to Edom.
