Prophecy about Damascus

1 The Iaoracle concerning bDamascus.
  “Behold, Damascus is about to be cremoved from being a city
  And will become a dfallen ruin.
  2 “The cities Iof aAroer are forsaken;
  They will be for bflocks IIto lie down in,
  And there will be cno one to frighten [them].
  3 “The Iafortified city will disappear from Ephraim,
  And IIsovereignty from Damascus
  And the remnant of Aram;
  They will be like the bglory of the sons of Israel,”
  Declares the LORD of hosts.

  4 ¶ Now in that day the aglory of Jacob will Ifade,
  And bthe fatness of his flesh will become lean.
  5 It will be aeven like the Ireaper gathering the standing grain,
  As his arm harvests the ears,
  Or it will be like one gleaning ears of grain
  In the bvalley of Rephaim.
  6 Yet agleanings will be left in it like the Ishaking of an olive tree,
  Two [or] three olives on the topmost bough,
  Four [or] five on the branches of a fruitful tree,
  Declares the LORD, the God of Israel.
  7 In that day man will ahave regard for his Maker
  And his eyes will look to the Holy One of Israel.
  8 He will not have regard for the aaltars, the work of his hands,
  Nor will he look to that which his bfingers have made,
  Even the IcAsherim and IIincense stands.
  9 In that day Itheir strong cities will be like IIforsaken places in the forest,
  Or like IIIbranches which they abandoned before the sons of Israel;
  And IVthe land will be a desolation.
  10 For ayou have forgotten the bGod of your salvation
  And have not remembered the crock of your refuge.
  Therefore you plant delightful plants
  And set them with vine slips of a strange [god].
  11 In the day that you plant [it] you carefully fence [it] in,
  And in the amorning you bring your seed to blossom;
  [But] the harvest will b[be] a heap
  In a day of sickliness and incurable pain.

Syria and Israel are threatened.

1 ¶ The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from [being] a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. 2 The cities of Aroer [are] forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make [them] afraid. 3 The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts. 4 And in that day it shall come to pass, [that] the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean. 5 And it shall be as when the harvestman gathereth the corn, and reapeth the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathereth ears in the valley of Rephaim.

A remnant shall forsake idolatry.

6 ¶ Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree, two [or] three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four [or] five in the outmost fruitful branches thereof, saith the LORD God of Israel. 7 At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel. 8 And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands, neither shall respect [that] which his fingers have made, either the groves, or the images.

The rest shall be plagued for their impiety.

9 ¶ In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Israel: and there shall be desolation. 10 Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips: 11 In the day shalt thou make thy plant to grow, 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.

The woe of Israel's enemies.

12 ¶ Woe to the multitude of many people, [which] make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, [that] make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters! 13 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but [God] shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind. 14 And behold at eveningtide trouble; [and] before the morning he [is] not. This [is] the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.
