2 Therefore, behold, the days are coming,
declares the Lord,
when I will cause dthe battle cry to be heard
against eRabbah of the Ammonites;

and its villages shall be burned with fire;
then Israel shall dispossess those who dispossessed him,
says the Lord.
An Oracle Concerning Damascus
Behold, Damascus will cease to be a city
and will become a heap of ruins.
2 For you have made the city ma heap,
the fortified city a ruin;
the foreigners’ palace is a city no more;
it will never be rebuilt.
18 “Thus says the Lord:
Behold, mI will restore the fortunes of the tents of Jacob
and have compassion on his dwellings;
the city shall be rebuilt on nits mound,
and the palace shall stand where it used to be.
