Behold, Damascus is taken away cfrom being a city,
And it shall be a ruinous heap.
2 dThe cities of Aroer are forsaken:
They shall be for flocks,
They shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the Lord of hosts.
That gthe glory of Jacob shall be made thin,
And ithe fatness of his flesh shall wax lean.
5 And it shall be jas when the harvestman gathereth the corn,
And reapeth the ears with his arm;
And it shall be as he that gathereth ears in kthe valley of Rephaim.
Saith the Lord God of Israel.
7 At that day shall a man look to shis Maker,
And his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.
8 And he shall not look to the altars, tthe work of his hands,
Neither shall respect that which his fingers have made,
xWhich they left because of the children of Israel:
And there shall be desolation.
10 Because thou hast forgotten ythe God of thy salvation,
And hast not been mindful of zthe rock of thy strength,
Therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants,
And shalt set it with strange slips:
And in the morning shalt thou make thy seed to flourish:
But the harvest shall be ||a heap in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow.
12 Woe to the ||multitude of many people,
And to athe rushing of nations,
But God shall drebuke them, and they shall flee far off,
And shall be chased eas the chaff of the mountains before the wind,
And before the morning he is not.
hThis is the portion of them that spoil us,
And the lot of them that rob us.
