2 Kings 13:18–19; Amos 1:4

18 And he said, Take the arrows, and he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, Strike the ground with them. And he struck three times and stopped. 19 Then bthe man of God was angry with him and said, You should have struck five or six times; then you would have struck down Syria until you had made an end of it, but now you will strike down Syria only cthree times.

nSo I will send a fire upon the house of oHazael,

and it shall devour the strongholds of oBen-hadad.
