The Word against Damascus1 The word against Damascus. Behold, Damascus shall be lifted from cities, and will be for a downfall; 2 being left behind into the eon for a bed, [3for flocks 1and 2a resting], and there will not be one pursuing. 3 And no longer shall there be a fortified place to take refuge there for Ephraim; and no longer a kingdom in Damascus, nor a remaining of the Syrians. [4no 1For 2you 5better 3are] than the sons of Israel, even their glory; thus says the lord of Hosts. 4 It shall be in that day an end of the glory of Jacob; and the plenty of his glory shall be shaken. 5 And it shall be in which manner as if someone should gather [2harvest 1a standing], and [2the grain 3of corn 1should reap]; and it shall be in which manner if someone should gather corn in [2ravine 1a solid rock]; 6 and as if [2should be left behind 3in 4it 1stubble], or as [5stones 4olive 1two 2or 3three] [2at 3the top of the tree 1elevated], or four or five [2upon 3their tender branches 1should be left behind]. Thus says the lord God of Israel. 7 In that day [2will be relying 1man] upon the one who made him, and his eyes [2to 3the 4holy one 5of Israel 1shall look]. 8 And in no way should they be relying upon the shrines, nor upon the works of their hands which they made with their fingers; and they shall not look to the trees, nor their abominations. 9 In that day [2shall be 1your cities] abandoned, in which manner [6left 1the 2Amorites 3and 4the 5Hivites] before the face of the sons of Israel; and they shall be desolate places. 10 Because you forsook the God your deliverer, even your God you remembered not. On account of this you shall plant [2plant 1an untrustworthy], and [2seed 1an untrustworthy]. 11 And in the day whenever you should plant, you shall be misled; but [3by morning 1if 2you should sow] it shall bloom for a harvest in whatever day of inheritance; and as a father of a man, you shall choose by lot for your sons. 12 Woe to the multitude [2nations 1of many]; as a sea swelling up, so you shall be disturbed; and the sound [2nations 1of many 4as 5water 3shall sound]. 13 As [2water 1much 4nations 3many]; as [2water 1much 4by force 3being brought]; and he shall curse one to be far from them, and at a distance from them he shall pursue, as dust of mountains being winnowed before the wind, and as a cloud of dust [3of the wheel 2of a blast 1being brought]. 14 Towards evening there will be mourning; before morning, and he will not be. This is the portion of the ones despoiling us, and the inheritance to the ones having inherited us.
