And the [fn]summit of Carmel dries up.”

So the people of Aram will be exiled to Kir,”
Says the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 1:9 - This is what the LORD says:

And he maintained his fury forever.

In order to enlarge their borders.

And it will consume her citadels
Amid [fn]war cries on the day of battle,
And amid a storm on the day of tempest.

He and his princes together,” says the LORD.
