Prophecy against Philistia1That which came as the word of the Lord to Jeremiah the prophet concerning the a Philistines, before Pharaoh ▼
▼ Lit smoteconquered 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.
3“Because of the noise of the ▼
▼ Lit stamping of the, h galloping hoofs of his ▼
▼ Lit mighty onesstallions,
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?
6“Ah p sword of the Lord,
How long will you not be quiet?
Withdraw into your sheath;
Be at rest and stay still.
7“How can ▼
▼ Lit youit be quiet,
When the Lord has r given it an order?
Against Ashkelon and against the seacoast—
There He has s assigned it.”
