Amos 1:2-4 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

And he said, Hashem roars from Tziyon, and utters His voice from Yerushalayim; and the pastures of the ro’im (shepherds) mourn, and the summit of Mt Carmel withers.

Thus saith Hashem: For shloshah peysha’im of Damascus, even for arba’ah, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have threshed Gil‘ad with threshing sledges of barzel (iron);

But I will send an eish onto Bais Chatzael, which shall devour the fortresses of Ben-hadad.

Amos 1:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

He said:

“The Lord roars from Zion
    and thunders from Jerusalem;
the pastures of the shepherds dry up,
    and the top of Carmel withers.”

Judgment on Israel’s Neighbors

This is what the Lord says:

“For three sins of Damascus,
    even for four, I will not relent.
Because she threshed Gilead
    with sledges having iron teeth,
I will send fire on the house of Hazael
    that will consume the fortresses of Ben-Hadad.
