An oracle against Arabia: You will camp for the night in the scrublands of the desert, you caravans of Dedanites.
Bring water for the thirsty. The inhabitants of the land of Tema meet the refugees with food.
For they have fled from swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, from the stress of battle.
For the Lord said this to me: "Within one year, as a hired worker counts years, all the glory of Kedar will be gone.
The remaining Kedarite archers will be few in number." For the Lord, the God of Israel, has spoken.
