Judgment on the Philistines1 The 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.
3 At 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,
4 because 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!
7 How 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.”
