Jeremiah 47
Berean Study BibleHebrew Study Bible
1This is the word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet about the Philistines before Pharaoh struck down Gaza.1אֲשֶׁ֨ר הָיָ֧ה דְבַר־ יְהוָ֛ה אֶל־ יִרְמְיָ֥הוּ הַנָּבִ֖יא אֶל־ פְּלִשְׁתִּ֑ים בְּטֶ֛רֶם יַכֶּ֥ה פַרְעֹ֖ה אֶת־ עַזָּֽה׃ ס
2This is what the LORD says: “See how the waters are rising from the north and becoming an overflowing torrent. They will overflow the land and its fullness, the cities and their inhabitants. The people will cry out, and all who dwell in the land will wail2כֹּ֣ה ׀ אָמַ֣ר יְהוָ֗ה הִנֵּה־ מַ֜יִם עֹלִ֤ים מִצָּפוֹן֙ וְהָיוּ֙ לְנַ֣חַל שׁוֹטֵ֔ף וְיִשְׁטְפוּ֙ אֶ֣רֶץ וּמְלוֹאָ֔הּ עִ֖יר וְיֹ֣שְׁבֵי בָ֑הּ וְזָֽעֲקוּ֙ הָֽאָדָ֔ם וְהֵילִ֕ל כֹּ֖ל יוֹשֵׁ֥ב הָאָֽרֶץ׃
3at the sound of the galloping hooves of stallions, the rumbling of chariots, and the clatter of their wheels. The fathers will not turn back for their sons; their hands will hang limp.3מִקּ֗וֹל שַֽׁעֲטַת֙ פַּרְס֣וֹת אַבִּירָ֔יו מֵרַ֣עַשׁ לְרִכְבּ֔וֹ הֲמ֖וֹן גַּלְגִּלָּ֑יו לֹֽא־ הִפְנ֤וּ אָבוֹת֙ אֶל־ בָּנִ֔ים מֵֽרִפְי֖וֹן יָדָֽיִם׃
4For the day has come 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 from the coasts of Caphtor.4עַל־ הַיּ֗וֹם הַבָּא֙ לִשְׁד֣וֹד אֶת־ כָּל־ פְּלִשְׁתִּ֔ים לְהַכְרִ֤ית לְצֹר֙ וּלְצִיד֔וֹן כֹּ֖ל שָׂרִ֣יד עֹזֵ֑ר כִּֽי־ שֹׁדֵ֤ד יְהוָה֙ אֶת־ פְּלִשְׁתִּ֔ים שְׁאֵרִ֖ית אִ֥י כַפְתּֽוֹר׃
5The people of Gaza will shave their heads in mourning; Ashkelon will be silenced. O remnant of their valley, how long will you gash yourself?5בָּ֤אָה קָרְחָה֙ אֶל־ עַזָּ֔ה נִדְמְתָ֥ה אַשְׁקְל֖וֹן שְׁאֵרִ֣ית עִמְקָ֑ם עַד־ מָתַ֖י תִּתְגּוֹדָֽדִי׃ ס
6‘Alas, O sword of the LORD, how long until you rest? Return to your sheath; cease and be still!’6ה֗וֹי חֶ֚רֶב לַֽיהוָ֔ה עַד־ אָ֖נָה לֹ֣א תִשְׁקֹ֑טִי הֵאָֽסְפִי֙ אַל־ תַּעְרֵ֔ךְ הֵרָגְעִ֖י וָדֹֽמִּי׃
7How can it rest when the LORD has commanded it? He has appointed it against Ashkelon and the shore of its coastland.”7אֵ֣יךְ תִּשְׁקֹ֔טִי וַֽיהוָ֖ה צִוָּה־ לָ֑הּ אֶֽל־ אַשְׁקְל֛וֹן וְאֶל־ ח֥וֹף הַיָּ֖ם שָׁ֥ם יְעָדָֽהּ׃ ס
