23Concerning Damascus:<quoted text>
So 160 years after a prophecy was made and concluded the actual prophecy was going to be extended upon as a different location.
To reinforce your machinations today, it can be repeated when ever.
The Assyria took the North, the Babylonians got them and the rest of Israel , what the Lord said about Nebuchadnezzar was a wind down the people are taken away but will come back to be in place for the coming of Christ.
No further prophecy was made concerning the "fate",- I don't even think you know what "fate" is,- of the return in relation to its ending or another beginning after that ending, by any Prophet that the Jew recognized.
So the Chosen People changed when the Jew didn't recognize Christ.
Hamath and Arpad are dismayed,
for they have heard bad news.
They are disheartened,
troubled like #
49:23Hebrew onor by
the restless sea.
24Damascus has become feeble,
she has turned to flee
and panic has gripped her;
anguish and pain have seized her,
pain like that of a woman in labor.
25Why has the city of renown not been abandoned,
the town in which I delight?
26Surely, her young men will fall in the streets;
all her soldiers will be silenced in that day,
declares the Lord Almighty.
27I will set fire to the walls of Damascus;
it will consume the fortresses of Ben-Hadad.
