Dammesek will soon stop being a city; it will become a heap of ruins. 2 The cities of ‘Aro‘er will be abandoned, given over to flocks lying down undisturbed. 3 Efrayim will have no defenses, Dammesek will cease to rule, and Aram’s survivors will share the fate of Isra’el’s finest sons
ADONAI is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? ADONAI is on my side as my helper; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.
