Judgment on the Nations

Thus says the Lord:

“For three transgressions of (A)Damascus, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,
Because they have (B)threshed Gilead with implements of iron.
(C)But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael,
Which shall devour the palaces of (D)Ben-Hadad.
I will also break the gate (E)bar of Damascus,
And cut off the inhabitant from the Valley of Aven,
And the one who [a]holds the scepter from [b]Beth Eden.
The people of Syria shall go captive to Kir,”
Says the Lord.
