Today's possibly relevant quote is from The Holy Bible: Isaiah 17:1.
Here's the quote:
"An Oracle Against Damascus
'See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted and left to flocks, which will lie down, with no one to make them afraid. The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim, and the royal power from Damascus; the remnant of Aram will be like the glory of the Israelites,' declares the Lord Almighty."
