An Oracle Concerning Damascus
1An oracle concerning Damascus.
Behold, Damascus will cease to be a city
4And in that day the glory of Jacob will be brought low,
7In that day man will look to his Maker, and his eyes will look on the Holy One of Israel. 8He will not look to the altars, the work of his hands, and he will not look on what his own fingers have made, either the Asherim or the altars of incense.
9In that day their strong cities will be like the deserted places of the wooded heights and the hilltops, which they deserted because of the children of Israel, and there will be desolation.
10For you have forgotten the God of your salvation
12Ah, the thunder of many peoples;
a 11 Or though you carefully fence them
b 11 Or will be a heap
