Seize their tents and their flocks, their tent curtains and everything in their tents. Take their camels and tell the people, "Terror is all around you!'
"People of Hazor, I, the Lord, warn you to run far away and hide. King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylonia has plotted against you, and this is what he says,
"Come on! We'll attack those people that feel safe and secure! Their city has no gates or locks and is completely unprotected.'
"Take their camels and all their livestock! I will scatter in every direction those people who cut their hair short, and I will bring disaster on them from every side.
Hazor will be made a desert forever, a place where only jackals live. No one will ever live there again. I, the Lord, have spoken."
Soon after Zedekiah became king of Judah, the Lord Almighty spoke to me about the country of Elam.
He said, "I will kill all the archers who have made Elam so powerful.
I will make winds blow against Elam from all directions, and I will scatter her people everywhere, until there is no country where her refugees have not gone.
I will make the people of Elam afraid of their enemies, who want to kill them. In my great anger I will destroy the people of Elam and send armies against them until I have wiped them out.
I will destroy their kings and leaders, and set up my throne there.
But later on I will make the people of Elam prosperous again. I, the Lord, have spoken."
