Jeremiah 47


Judgment against the Philistines

1And [3came 1the word 2of the  lord] to Jeremiah the prophet against the Philistines, before the striking of Pharaoh of Gaza. 2Thus says the  lord, Behold, waters ascend from the north, and will be for a rushing stream, flooding. And it shall flood the land, and the fullness of it; the city and the ones dwelling in it. And [3shall cry out 1the 2men], and [5shall shout 6all together 1the ones 2dwelling 3in the 4land] 3from the sound of his thrust, from the hoofs of his feet, and from the quake of his chariots, the sound of his wheels. [2did not 3turn 1Fathers] unto their sons because of the feebleness of their hands, 4in the day, in the coming one, to destroy all the Philistines, and to obliterate Tyre and Sidon and all the rest of their helpers, for the  lord will utterly destroy the Philistines of the remnants of the islands of Cappadocia. 5[2is come 1Baldness] upon Gaza; Ashkelon was thrown away, and the remnant of the Anakim. 6How long will you smite, sword of the the  lord? Until when will you not be still? Restore it unto your sheath! Cause it to rest and be lifted away! 7How shall it be quiet, and the  lord gave charge to it against Ashkelon, and against the places by the sea, for the remnant to be roused.
