Prophecies against the Philistines
Unchecked Copy BoxJer 47:1 -

This is the word of the LORD that came to the prophet Jeremiah about the Philistines before Pharaoh defeated Gaza.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 47:2 -

This is what the LORD says:

Look, water is rising from the north

and becoming an overflowing wadi.

It will overflow the land and everything in it,

the cities and their inhabitants.

The people will cry out,

and every inhabitant of the land will wail.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 47:3 -

At the sound of the stomping hooves of his stallions,

the rumbling of his chariots,

and the clatter of their wheels,

fathers will not turn back for their sons.

They will be utterly helpless[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 47:4 -

on account of the day that is coming

to destroy all the Philistines,

to cut off from Tyre and Sidon

every remaining ally.

Indeed, the LORD is about to destroy the Philistines,

the remnant of the coastland of Caphtor.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 47:5 -

Baldness is coming to Gaza;

Ashkelon will become silent.

Remnant of their valley,

how long will you gash yourself?

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 47:6 -

Oh, sword of the LORD!

How long will you be restless?

Go back to your sheath;

be still; be silent!

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 47:7 -

How can it[fn] rest

when the LORD has given it a command?

He has assigned it

against Ashkelon and the shore of the sea.
