Prophecy about Damascus

17 The [a](A)oracle concerning (B)Damascus.

“Behold, Damascus is about to be (C)removed from being a city
And will become a (D)fallen ruin.
“The cities [b]of (E)Aroer are forsaken;
They will be for (F)flocks [c]to lie down in,
And there will be (G)no one to frighten them.
“The [d](H)fortified city will disappear from Ephraim,
And [e]sovereignty from Damascus
And the remnant of Aram;
They will be like the (I)glory of the sons of Israel,”
Declares the Lord of hosts.
