The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

17:1 a ruinous heap. Damascus, a very ancient city, capital of the Syrians, was all but obliterated by the invading Assyrians. However, it was soon rebuilt and has remained as the Syrian capital ever since, although it has been invaded by the Babylonians and many other armies over subsequent centuries.
