The Book of the Prophet Jeremiah

Return to Index

Chapter 47

1

 

 The word of the Lord which came to Jeremiah the prophet about the Philistines, before Pharaoh's attack on Gaza. 

 

 


2

 

 This is what the Lord has said: See, waters are coming up out of the north, and will become an overflowing stream, overflowing the land and everything in it, the town and those who are living in it; and men will give a cry, and all the people of the land will be crying out in pain. 

 

 


3

 

 At the noise of the stamping of the feet of his war-horses, at the rushing of his carriages and the thunder of his wheels, fathers will give no thought to their children, because their hands are feeble; 

 

 


4

 

 Because of the day which is coming with destruction on all the Philistines, cutting off from Tyre and Zidon the last of their helpers: for the Lord will send destruction on the Philistines, the rest of the sea-land of Caphtor. 

 

 


5

 

 The hair is cut off from the head of Gaza; Ashkelon has come to nothing; the last of the Anakim are deeply wounding themselves. 

 

 


6

 

 O sword of the Lord, how long will you have no rest? put yourself back into your cover; be at peace, be quiet. 

 

 


7

 

 How is it possible for it to be quiet, seeing that the Lord has given it orders? against Ashkelon and against the sea-land he has given it directions.
