This is what the LORD says: "For three sins of Ammon,1 even for four, I will not turn back [my wrath]. Because he ripped open the pregnant women2 of Gilead in order to extend his borders,
I will set fire to the walls of Rabbah3 that will consume4 her fortresses amid war cries5 on the day of battle, amid violent winds6 on a stormy day.
Her king will go into exile, he and his officials together,7" says the LORD.8
