28 So Joshua burned Ai and made it forever a wheap of ruins, as it is to this day.


Therefore, behold, the days are coming,

declares the Lord,

when I will cause dthe battle cry to be heard

against eRabbah of the Ammonites;

it shall become a desolate fmound,

and its villages shall be burned with fire;

then Israel shall dispossess those who dispossessed him,

says the Lord.


An Oracle Concerning Damascus

17 An soracle concerning tDamascus.

Behold, Damascus will cease to be a city

and will become a heap of ruins.


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.
