Isaiah 17

17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from
 [being] a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
17:2 The cities of Aroer [are] forsaken: they shall be for
 flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make [them]
17:3 The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom
 from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the
 glory of the children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts.
17:4 And in that day it shall come to pass, [that] the glory of
 Jacob shall be diminished, and the fatness of his flesh shall
 become lean.
17:5 And it shall be as when the harvest-man gathereth the corn,
 and reapeth the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that
 gathereth ears in the valley of Rephaim.
17:6 Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of
 an olive-tree, two [or] three berries in the top of the
 uppermost bough, four [or] five in the outmost fruitful
 branches of it, saith the LORD God of Israel.
17:7 At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes
 shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.
17:8 And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands,
 neither shall respect [that] which his fingers have made,
 either the groves, or the images.
17:9 In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough,
 and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the
 children of Israel: and there shall be desolation.
17:10 Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and
 hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore
 shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with foreign
17:11 In the day shalt thou make thy plant to grow, and in the
 morning shalt thou make thy seed to flourish: [but] the harvest
 [shall be] a heap in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow.
17:12 Woe to the multitude of many people, [who] make a noise
 like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations,
 [that] make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!
17:13 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters:
 but [God] will rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and
 shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind,
 and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.
17:14 And behold at the time of evening trouble; [and] before
 the morning he [is] not. This [is] the portion of them that
 ravage us, and the lot of them that rob us.
