and I said:

When the Lord roars
    from Jerusalem,
pasturelands and Mount Carmel
    dry up and turn brown.

Judgment on Syria

The Lord said:

I will punish Syria[a]
for countless crimes,
    and I won’t change my mind.
They dragged logs with spikes[b]
    over the people of Gilead.
Now I will burn down the palaces
and fortresses
of King Hazael
    and of King Benhadad.[c]
