“Hamath and Arpad are dismayed, for they have heard bad news. They are disheartened, troubled like[a] the restless sea. 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. 25 Why has the city of renown not been abandoned, the town in which I delight? 26 Surely, her young men will fall in the streets; all her soldiers will be silenced in that day,” declares the Lord Almighty. 27 “I will set fire to the walls of Damascus; it will consume the fortresses of Ben-Hadad.”
A Message About Kedar and Hazor
28 Concerning Kedar and the kingdoms of Hazor, which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon attacked:
This is what the Lord says:
“Arise, and attack Kedar and destroy the people of the East. 29 Their tents and their flocks will be taken; their shelters will be carried off with all their goods and camels. People will shout to them, ‘Terror on every side!’
5 I will break down the gate of Damascus; I will destroy the king who is in[a] the Valley of Aven[b] and the one who holds the scepter in Beth Eden. The people of Aram will go into exile to Kir,” says the Lord.
