Amos 1:3 Thus sayeth the LORDE: for thre & foure wickednesses of Damascus, I will not spare her: because they haue throshed Galaad wt yro flales: Amos 1:4 But I wil sende a fyre in to ye house of Hazael, the same shal consume the palaces of Benadab. Amos 1:5 Thus wil I breake the barres off Damascus, & rote out the inhabiter fro the felde of Auen, and him yt holdeth the scepter, out of ye pleasunt house: so yt the people shalbe dryuen out of fayre Siria, sayeth the LORDE.
