Amos 1:2-4 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
2 And he said:
Judgment on Israel’s Neighbors
“The Lord roars from Zion,
and utters his voice from Jerusalem;
the pastures of the shepherds mourn,
and the top of Carmel withers.”
3 Thus says the Lord:
“For three transgressions of Damascus,
and for four, I will not revoke the punishment;
because they have threshed Gilead
with threshing sledges of iron.
4 So I will send a fire upon the house of Haz′ael,
and it shall devour the strongholds of Ben-ha′dad.
