An oracle1 concerning Arabia:2 You caravans of Dedanites,3 who camp in the thickets of Arabia,
bring water for the thirsty; you who live in Tema,4 bring food for the fugitives.
They flee5 from the sword,6 from the drawn sword, from the bent bow and from the heat of battle.
This is what the Lord says to me: "Within one year, as a servant bound by contract7 would count it, all the pomp8 of Kedar9 will come to an end.
The survivors of the bowmen, the warriors of Kedar, will be few.10" The LORD, the God of Israel, has spoken.11
