Jeremiah 47:7

Jeremiah 47:7

How can it be quiet
There is no reason to believe it will, nor can it be expected that it should; to stop it is impossible, and to request that it might be stopped is in vain: seeing the Lord hath given it a charge against Ashkelon, and against
the seashore?
for it had a commission from the Lord to destroy the inhabitants of Ashkelon, and other places, which lay still more towards the sea, as Joppa and Jamne; and indeed all Palestine lay on the coast of the Mediterranean sea: there hath he appointed it;
by an irreversible decree of his, in righteousness to punish the inhabitants of these places for their sins.
