Judgment on Damascus

23 Concerning (A)Damascus:

(B)“Hamath and (C)Arpad are confounded,
    for they have heard bad news;
they melt in fear,
    (D)they are troubled like the sea that cannot be quiet.
24 (E)Damascus has become feeble, (F)she turned to flee,
    and panic seized her;
anguish and sorrows have taken hold of her,
    as (G)of a woman in labor.
25 How is (H)the famous city not forsaken,
    the city of my joy?
26 (I)Therefore her young men shall fall in her squares,
    and all her soldiers shall be destroyed in that day,
declares the Lord of hosts.
27 And (J)I will kindle a fire in the wall of (K)Damascus,
    and it shall devour the strongholds of (L)Ben-hadad.”
