Judgement on Israel's Neighbours

And he said:

(A)“The Lord roars from Zion
    and utters his voice from Jerusalem;
(B)the pastures of the shepherds mourn,
    and the (C)top of (D)Carmel withers.”

Thus says the Lord:

(E)“For three transgressions of (F)Damascus,
    and for four, (G)I will not revoke the punishment,[a]
because they have threshed (H)Gilead
    with threshing sledges of iron.
(I)So I will send a fire upon the house of (J)Hazael,
    and it shall devour the strongholds of (K)Ben-hadad.
