A Message About Damascus

23 Concerning Damascus:(A)

“Hamath(B) and Arpad(C) are dismayed,
    for they have heard bad news.
They are disheartened,
    troubled like[a] the restless sea.(D)
24 Damascus has become feeble,
    she has turned to flee
    and panic has gripped her;
anguish and pain have seized her,
    pain like that of a woman in labor.(E)
25 Why has the city of renown not been abandoned,
    the town in which I delight?
26 Surely, her young men(F) will fall in the streets;
    all her soldiers will be silenced(G) in that day,”
declares the Lord Almighty.
27 “I will set fire(H) to the walls of Damascus;(I)
    it will consume(J) the fortresses of Ben-Hadad.(K)
