Jeremiah 47
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1That which has been the word of YHWH to Jeremiah concerning the Philistines, before Pharaoh strikes Gaza:

2“Thus said YHWH: Behold, waters are going up from the north, "" And have been for an overflowing stream, "" And they overflow the land and its fullness, "" The city, and those dwelling in it, "" And men have cried out, "" And every inhabitant of the land has howled.

3From the sound of the stamping of the hooves of his mighty ones, "" From the rushing of his chariot, "" The noise of his wheels, "" Fathers have not turned to sons, "" From feebleness of hands,

4Because of the day that has come to spoil all the Philistines, "" To cut off every helping remnant from Tyre and from Sidon. For YHWH is spoiling the Philistines, "" The remnant of the island of Caphtor.

5Baldness has come to Gaza, "" Ashkelon has been cut off, "" O remnant of their valley, "" Until when do you cut yourself?

6Behold, sword of YHWH, until when are you not quiet? Be removed to your sheath, rest and cease.

7How will it be quiet, "" And YHWH has given a charge to it, "" Against Ashkelon and against the seashore? He has appointed it there!”
