“Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city And will become a fallen ruin. 2 “The cities [b]of Aroer are forsaken; They will be for flocks [c]to lie down in, And there will be no one to frighten them. 3 “The [d]fortified city will disappear from Ephraim, And [e]sovereignty from Damascus And the remnant of Aram; They will be like the glory of the sons of Israel,” Declares the Lord of hosts.
Jeremiah 49:23-27New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Prophecy against Damascus
23 Concerning Damascus. “Hamath and Arpad are put to shame, For they have heard bad news; They are disheartened. There is anxiety by the sea, It cannot be calmed. 24 “Damascus has become helpless; She has turned away to flee, And panic has gripped her; Distress and pangs have taken hold of her Like a woman in childbirth. 25 “How [a]the city of praise has not been deserted, The town of My joy! 26 “Therefore, her young men will fall in her streets, And all the men of war will be [b]silenced in that day,” declares the Lord of hosts. 27 “I will set fire to the wall of Damascus, And it will devour the [c]fortified towers of Ben-hadad.”
