Judgment on Damascus

Jeremiah 49

23 l Against Damascus.
m "Hamath and Arpad are shamed,
For they have heard bad news.
They are fainthearted;
n There is 1 trouble on the sea;
It cannot be quiet.
24 Damascus has grown feeble;
She turns to flee,
And fear has seized her.
o Anguish and sorrows have taken her like a woman in 2 labor.
25 Why is p the city of praise not deserted, the city of My joy? 26 q Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets,
And all the men of war shall be cut off in that day," says the LORD of hosts.
27 "I r will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus,
And it shall consume the palaces of BenHadad." 3
