He said, “From Zion the Lord roars,
    and from Jerusalem he shouts aloud.
The shepherds’ pastures will languish,
    and Carmel’s summit will wither.”

A Warning to Damascus

This is what the Lord says:

“For three transgressions of Damascus
    —and now for a fourth—
        I will not turn away;
because they have trampled down[a] Gilead
    with ironclad threshing sleds.
So I will send down fire upon the house of Hazael,
    and it will devour the palaces of Ben-hadad.

Judgment on Israel’s Neighbors

This is what the Lord says:

“For three sins of Damascus,(F)
    even for four, I will not relent.(G)
Because she threshed Gilead
    with sledges having iron teeth,
I will send fire(H) on the house of Hazael(I)
    that will consume the fortresses(J) of Ben-Hadad.(K)

Thus saith the Lord; For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have threshed Gilead with threshing instruments of iron:

But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael, which shall devour the palaces of Benhadad.
