3 Thus says the Lord:
“For three transgressions of hDamascus, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,
Because they have ithreshed Gilead with implements of iron.
4 jBut I will send a fire into the house of Hazael,
Which shall devour the palaces of kBen-Hadad.
5 I will also break the gate lbar of Damascus,
And cut off the inhabitant from the Valley of Aven,
The people of Syria shall go captive to Kir,”
Says the Lord.
