Judgment on Neighbor Nations

1 The words of Amos, who was among the asheepherders from bTekoa, which he Ienvisioned in visions concerning Israel in the days of cUzziah king of Judah, and in the days of dJeroboam son of Joash, king of Israel, two years before the eearthquake.
  2 He said,
  “The aLORD roars from Zion
  And from Jerusalem He utters His voice;
  And the shepherds’ bpasture grounds mourn,
  And the Icsummit of Carmel dries up.”

  “For athree transgressions of bDamascus and for four
  I will not Irevoke its [punishment],
  Because they threshed Gilead with [implements] of sharp iron.
  4 “So I will send fire upon the house of Hazael
  And it will consume the citadels of aBen-hadad.
  5 “I will also abreak the [gate] bar of Damascus,
  And cut off the inhabitant from the Ivalley of Aven,
  And him who holds the scepter, from Beth-eden;
  So the people of Aram will go exiled to bKir,”
  Says the LORD.

  Because they deported an entire population
  To bdeliver [it] up to Edom.
  7 “So I will send fire upon the wall of Gaza
  And it will consume her citadels.

Amos sheweth God's judgment upon Syria,

1 ¶ The words of Amos, who was among the herdmen of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake. 2 And he said, The LORD will roar from Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the habitations of the shepherds shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither. 3 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away [the punishment] thereof; because they have threshed Gilead with threshing instruments of iron: 4 But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael, which shall devour the palaces of Benhadad. 5 I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the sceptre from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the LORD.
