Jeremiah 49:23-27 New International Version

The Prophecy concerning Damascus

23  Concerning Damascus: "Hamath and Arpad are dismayed, for they have heard bad news. They are disheartened, troubled like[1] the restless sea. 24  Damascus has become feeble, she has turned to flee and panic has gripped her; anguish and pain have seized her, pain like that of a woman in labor. 25  Why has the city of renown not been abandoned, the town in which I delight? 26  Surely, her young men will fall in the streets; all her soldiers will be silenced in that day," declares the Lord Almighty. 27  "I will set fire to the walls of Damascus; it will consume the fortresses of Ben-Hadad."
