Amos 1:2-4 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

He said:

The Lord roars from Zion,
    and his voice thunders from Jerusalem.
The pastures of the shepherds are turning brown,
    and the top of Mount Carmel is dried up.

Damascus Will Be Judged for Its Crimes

This is what the Lord says:

Because Damascus has committed three crimes, and now a fourth crime,
    I will not change my plans.
        The Arameans have crushed the people of Gilead
            with iron-spiked threshing[a] sledges.
    I will send a fire on the house of Hazael
        and burn down the palaces of Ben Hadad.
