Jordan 4: Petra's Demise

Jeremiah 49:15-18 (NIV):

“Now I will make you small among the nations, despised by mankind.  The terror you inspire and the pride of your heart have deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rocks, who occupy the heights of the hill. Though you build your nest as high as the eagle’s, from there I will bring you down,” declares the Lord . 

“Edom will become an object of horror; all who pass by will be appalled and will scoff because of all its wounds.  As Sodom and Gomorrah were overthrown, along with their neighboring towns,” says the Lord , “so no one will live there; no people will dwell in it."
