14Then the  Lord said to me, a  Out of the north disaster
The Hebrew word can mean evil, harm, or  disaster, depending on the context; so throughout Jeremiah
shall be let loose upon all the inhabitants of the land.
15For behold c  I am calling all the tribes of the kingdoms of the north, declares the  Lord d  and they shall come, and every one shall set his throne at the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem, against all its walls all around and against all the cities of Judah.

Jeremiah 4:6

6 e  Raise a standard toward Zion,
flee for safety, stay not,
for I bring disaster from f  the north,
g  and great destruction.

Jeremiah 6:22

22 Thus says the  Lord:
h  Behold, a people is coming i  from the north country,
a great nation is stirring from j  the farthest parts of the earth.

Jeremiah 10:22

22 A voice, a rumor! Behold, it comes!—
k  a great commotion out of the north country
to make l  the cities of Judah a desolation,
m  a lair of jackals.

Jeremiah 25:9

9 n  behold, I will send for all the tribes of the north, declares the  Lord, and for Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon o  my servant, and I will bring them against this land and its inhabitants, and against all these surrounding nations. I will devote them to destruction p  and make them a horror, a hissing, and an everlasting desolation.

Ezekiel 26:7-21

7For thus says the Lord  God: q  Behold, I will bring against Tyre r  from the north Nebuchadnezzar
Hebrew Nebuchadrezzar; so throughout Ezekiel
king of Babylon t  king of kings, with horses and chariots, and with horsemen and a host of many soldiers.
8He will kill with the sword u  your daughters on the mainland. v  He will set up a siege wall against you and throw up a mound against you, and raise w  a roof of shields against you. 9 x  He will direct the shock of his battering rams against your walls, and with his axes he will break down your towers. 10His horses will be so many that their dust will cover you. Your walls will shake at the noise of the horsemen and wagons and chariots, when he enters your gates as men enter a city that has been breached. 11With the hoofs of his horses he will trample all your streets. He will kill your people with the sword, and your mighty pillars will fall to the ground. 12They will plunder y  your riches and loot z  your merchandise. They will break down your walls and destroy your pleasant houses. Your stones and timber and aa  soil they will cast into the midst of the waters. 13 ab  And I will stop the music of your songs, and ac  the sound of your lyres shall be heard no more. 14 ad  I will make you a bare rock. ae  You shall be a place for the spreading of nets. You shall never be rebuilt af  for I am the  Lord; I have spoken, declares the Lord  God.

15Thus says the Lord  God to Tyre: Will not ag  the coastlands shake at the sound of your fall ah  when the wounded groan, when slaughter is made in your midst? 16Then all ai  the princes of the sea will step down from their thrones and aj  remove their robes and strip off their embroidered garments. They will clothe themselves with trembling; ak  they will sit on the ground and al  tremble every moment and am  be appalled at you. 17And they will an  raise a lamentation over you and say to you,

“‘How you have perished,
you who were inhabited from the seas,
O city renowned,
ao  who was mighty on the sea;
she and her inhabitants ap  imposed their terror
on all her inhabitants!
18Now the coastlands tremble
on the day of your fall,
and the coastlands that are on the sea
are dismayed at your passing.’

19For thus says the Lord  God: When I make you a city laid waste, like the cities that are not inhabited aq  when I bring up the deep over you, and the great waters cover you, 20then ar  I will make you go down with those who go down to the pit, to the people of old, and I will make you to dwell in the world below, among ruins from of old, as  with those who go down to the pit, so that you will not be inhabited; but I will set beauty at  in the land of the living. 21I will bring you au  to a dreadful end, and you shall be no more. av  Though you be sought for, you will never be found again, declares the Lord  God.”
