Amos 1:4-6 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
4 So I will send a fire upon the house of Haz′ael,
and it shall devour the strongholds of Ben-ha′dad.
5 I will break the bar of Damascus,
and cut off the inhabitants from the Valley of Aven,
and him that holds the scepter from Beth-eden;
and the people of Syria shall go into exile to Kir,”
says the Lord.
6 Thus says the Lord:
“For three transgressions of Gaza,
and for four, I will not revoke the punishment;
because they carried into exile a whole people
to deliver them up to Edom.
