“I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the sceptre from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the LORD.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:5 The bar - Literally the bar with which the city gates were shut, and fastened. Of Eden - Some royal seat, of the kings of Syria. Kir - Kir of Media, #Isa 22:6|, thither did Tiglath - Pilneser carry the conquered Syrians, #2Kings 16:9|, and placed them captives in that barren mountainous country, about fifteen years after it was foretold by Amos.
