Amos 1:2-4 International Standard Version (ISV)

He said, “From Zion the Lord roars,
    and from Jerusalem he shouts aloud.
The shepherds’ pastures will languish,
    and Carmel’s summit will wither.”

A Warning to Damascus

This is what the Lord says:

“For three transgressions of Damascus
    —and now for a fourth—
        I will not turn away;
because they have trampled down[a] Gilead
    with ironclad threshing sleds.
So I will send down fire upon the house of Hazael,
    and it will devour the palaces of Ben-hadad.

    and thunders from Jerusalem;

Judgment on Israel’s Neighbors

This is what the Lord says:

“For three sins of Damascus,
    even for four, I will not relent.
Because she threshed Gilead
    with sledges having iron teeth,
I will send fire on the house of Hazael
    that will consume the fortresses of Ben-Hadad.
