View In My Bible
5 I will break the gate bars of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitants from the Valley of Aven, and the one who holds the scepter from Beth-eden; and the people of Aram shall go into exile to Kir, says the Lord. 6 Thus says the Lord: For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; a because they carried into exile entire communities, to hand them over to Edom. 7 So I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza, fire that shall devour its strongholds. 8 I will cut off the inhabitants from Ashdod, and the one who holds the scepter from Ashkelon; I will turn my hand against Ekron, and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish, says the Lord God. 9 Thus says the Lord: For three transgressions of Tyre, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; b because they delivered entire communities over to Edom, and did not remember the covenant of kinship. 10 So I will send a fire on the wall of Tyre, fire that shall devour its strongholds. 11 Thus says the Lord: For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; c because he pursued his brother with the sword and cast off all pity; he maintained his anger perpetually, d and kept his wrath e forever. 12 So I will send a fire on Teman, and it shall devour the strongholds of Bozrah. 13 Thus says the Lord: For three transgressions of the Ammonites, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; f because they have ripped open pregnant women in Gilead in order to enlarge their territory. 14 So I will kindle a fire against the wall of Rabbah, fire that shall devour its strongholds, with shouting on the day of battle, with a storm on the day of the whirlwind; 15 then their king shall go into exile, he and his officials together, says the Lord.
