those who rejoiced over it and yover its glory

for it has departed2 from them.


The high places of xAven, dthe sin of Israel,

and fthey shall say to the mountains, Cover us,

and to the hills, Fall on us.

and him who holds the scepter from rBeth-eden;

and the people of sSyria shall go into exile to tKir,

says the Lord.
