The Dumah Pronouncement

On Shevii Shel Pesach I was reading Avos D'Rebbi Nosson; it was amazing, this lept out of the pages:

“Your faith in the nights – refers to this world which is compared to the nights, as it says, The Dumah Pronouncement. A call comes to me from Seir, “Watchman, what of the night” Watchman, what of the night?”
(Yeshaya 31:11)

*Yisrael cries out to G–D: “When will the galus end in this world that is like a long night?” (Ben Abraham)

In searching through Yeshaya, it seems Isaiah made many “pronouncements”, this one is on Damascus:

The “Damascus” Pronouncement. Behold, Damascus shall cease to be a city; It shall become a heap of ruins.
2 The towns of Aroer shall be deserted; They shall be a place for flocks To lie down, with none disturbing.
3 Fortresses shall cease from Ephraim, And sovereignty from Damascus; The remnant of Aram shall become Like the mass of Israelites —declares the LORD of Hosts.
