32 In those days the Lord qbegan to cut off parts of Israel. rHazael defeated them throughout the territory of Israel:
17 At that time dHazael king of Syria went up and fought against Gath and took it. But when Hazael set his face eto go up against Jerusalem,
3 nAnd the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel, and he gave them continually into the hand of oHazael king of Syria and into the hand of pBen-hadad the son of Hazael.
7 For there was not left to Jehoahaz an army of more than fifty horsemen and ten chariots and ten thousand footmen, for the king of Syria had destroyed them and made them like the dust vat threshing.
22 eNow Hazael king of Syria oppressed Israel all the days of Jehoahaz.
3 Thus says the Lord:
k“For three transgressions of lDamascus,
and for four, lI will not revoke the punishment,
because they have threshed mGilead
with threshing sledges of iron.
4 nSo I will send a fire upon the house of oHazael,
and it shall devour the strongholds of oBen-hadad.
