And he said:

Judgment on Israel’s Neighbors

“The Lord roars from Zion,
    and utters his voice from Jerusalem;
the pastures of the shepherds mourn,
    and the top of Carmel withers.”

Thus says the Lord:

“For three transgressions of Damascus,
    and for four, I will not revoke the punishment;[a]
because they have threshed Gilead
    with threshing sledges of iron.
So I will send a fire upon the house of Haz′ael,
    and it shall devour the strongholds of Ben-ha′dad.
