Prophecy about Damascus

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:1 - The pronouncement concerning Damascus:
“Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city
And will become a fallen ruin
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:2 - “The cities [fn]of Aroer are abandoned;
They will be for herds [fn]to lie down in,
And there will be no one to frighten them.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:3 - “The [fn]fortified city will disappear from Ephraim,
And [fn]sovereignty from Damascus
And the remnant of Aram;
They will be like the glory of the sons of Israel,”
Declares the LORD of armies
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:4 - Now on that day the glory of Jacob will [fn]fade,
And the fatness of his flesh will become lean
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:5 - It will be like the [fn]reaper gathering the standing grain,
As his arm harvests the ears,
Or it will be like one gleaning ears of grain
In the Valley of Rephaim
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:6 - Yet gleanings will be left in it like the [fn]shaking of an olive tree,
Two or three olives on the topmost branch,
Four or five on the branches of a fruitful tree,
Declares the LORD, the God of Israel
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:7 - On that day man will look to his Maker
And his eyes will look to the Holy One of Israel
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:8 - And he will not look to the altars, the work of his hands,
Nor will he look to that which his fingers have made,
Even the [fn]Asherim and incense altars
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:9 - On that day [fn]their strong cities will be like [fn]abandoned places in the forest,
Or like branches which they abandoned before the sons of Israel;
And [fn]the land will be a desolation
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:10 - For you have forgotten the God of your salvation
And have not remembered the rock of your refuge.
Therefore you plant delightful plants
And set them with vine shoots of a strange god.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:11 - On the day that you plant it you carefully fence it in,
And in the morning you bring your seed to blossom;
But the harvest will flee
On a day of illness and incurable pain
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:12 - Oh, the uproar of many peoples
Who roar like the roaring of the seas,
And the rumbling of nations
Who rush on like the rumbling of mighty waters
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:13 - The nations rumble on like the rumbling of many waters,
But He will rebuke them, and they will flee far away,
And be chased like chaff on the mountains before the wind,
Or like whirling dust before a gale
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 17:14 - At evening time, behold, there is terror!
Before morning they are gone.
This will be the [fn]fate of those who plunder us
And the lot of those who pillage us.
