Judgment on the Philistines1The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet a concerning the Philistines, before Pharaoh struck down b Gaza. 2 “Thus says the Lord:
c Behold, waters are rising d out of the north,
e and shall become an overflowing torrent;
they shall overflow f the land and all that fills it,
the city and those who dwell in it.
Men shall cry out,
and every inhabitant of the land shall wail.
3At the noise of the stamping of the hoofs of his stallions,
g at the rushing of his chariots, at the rumbling of their wheels,
the fathers h look not back to their children,
so feeble are their hands,
4because of the day that is coming to destroy
all i the Philistines,
to cut off from j Tyre and Sidon
every helper that remains.
For the Lord is destroying the Philistines,
k the remnant of the coastland of l Caphtor.
5 m Baldness has come upon Gaza;
n Ashkelon has perished.
O remnant of their valley,
o how long will you gash yourselves?
6 p Ah, sword of the Lord!
How long till you are quiet?
Put yourself into your scabbard;
rest and be still!
7How can it ▼
▼Septuagint, Vulgate; Hebrew yoube quiet
r when the Lord has given it a charge?
Against s Ashkelon and against the seashore
t he has appointed it.”
