Unchecked Copy BoxJer 47:2 - This is what the LORD says:
“A flood is coming from the north
to overflow the land.
It will destroy the land and everything in it—
cities and people alike.
People will scream in terror,
and everyone in the land will wail.
Unchecked Copy BoxJer 47:3 - Hear the clatter of stallions’ hooves
and the rumble of wheels as the chariots rush by.
Terrified fathers run madly,
without a backward glance at their helpless children.
Unchecked Copy BoxJer 47:4 - “The time has come for the Philistines to be destroyed,
along with their allies from Tyre and Sidon.

those colonists from the island of Crete.[fn]
Unchecked Copy BoxJer 47:5 - Gaza will be humiliated, its head shaved bald;
Ashkelon will lie silent.
You remnant from the Mediterranean coast,[fn]
how long will you lament and mourn?
Unchecked Copy BoxJer 47:6 - “Now, O sword of the LORD,
when will you be at rest again?
Go back into your sheath;
rest and be still.

when the LORD has sent it on a mission?
For the city of Ashkelon
and the people living along the sea
must be destroyed.”
