Damascus (Ezek 27:18-27:18)

“Damascus traded

With you

For your abundant goods.

Because

Of your great wealth

Of every kind,

Wine of Helbon,

With white wool.”

Damascus was the inland capital of the Assyrian empire. They also traded with Tyre because of the abundance of goods and wealth of both cities. Damascus had good wine from Helbon, about 13 miles north of Damascus, as well as white wool.
