Word Against Philistia

1That which came as the word of Yahweh to Jeremiah the prophet concerning the Philistines, before Pharaoh struck down Gaza. 2Thus says Yahweh:

“Behold, waters are going to rise from the north

And become an overflowing torrent,

And overflow the land as well as its fullness,

The city and those who inhabit it;

And the men will cry out,

And every inhabitant of the land will wail.

3Because of the noise of the [†]galloping hoofs of his [†]valiant steeds,

The quaking of his chariots, and the tumult 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 destroy all the Philistines,

To cut off from Tyre and Sidon

Every ally that is left;

For Yahweh is going to destroy the Philistines,

The remnant of the coastland of Caphtor.

5Baldness has come upon Gaza;

Ashkelon has been ruined.

O remnant of their valley,

How long will you gash yourself?

6Ah, sword of Yahweh,

How long will you not be quiet?

Withdraw into your sheath;

[†]Be at rest and stay still.

7How can [†]it be quiet?

Yahweh has given it a command;

Against Ashkelon and against the seacoast—

There He has assigned it.”
