Jeremiah 47

Prophecy against Philistia

1That which came as the word of the  Lord to Jeremiah the prophet concerning the a  Philistines, before Pharaoh
Lit smote
conquered c  Gaza.
2Thus says the  Lord: Behold, waters are going to rise from d  the north
And become an overflowing torrent,
And e  overflow the land and all its fullness,
The city and those who live in it;
And the men will f  cry out,
And every inhabitant of the land will wail.
3Because of the noise of the
Lit stamping of the
h  galloping hoofs of his
Lit mighty ones
The tumult of his chariots, and the rumbling of his wheels,
The fathers have not turned back for their children,
Because of the limpness of their hands,
4On account of the day that is coming
To j  destroy all the Philistines,
To cut off from k  Tyre and Sidon
Every ally that is left;
For the  Lord is going to destroy the Philistines,
The remnant of the coastland of l  Caphtor.
5 m  Baldness has come upon Gaza;
n  Ashkelon has been ruined.
O remnant of their valley,
How long will you o  gash yourself?
6Ah p  sword of the  Lord,
How long will you not be quiet?
Withdraw into your sheath;
Be at rest and stay still.
7How can
Lit you
it be quiet,
When the  Lord has r  given it an order?
Against Ashkelon and against the seacoast
There He has s  assigned it.”
