Jeremiah 49:30-39 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
30 "Flee quickly away! Stay in deep caves,1 you who live in Hazor,2" declares the LORD. "Nebuchadnezzar3 king of Babylon has plotted against you; he has devised a plan against you. 31 "Arise and attack a nation at ease, which lives in confidence," declares the LORD, "a nation that has neither gates nor bars;4 its people live alone. 32 Their camels5 will become plunder, and their large herds6 will be booty. I will scatter to the winds7 those who are in distant placesa8 and will bring disaster on them from every side," declares the LORD. 33 "Hazor9 will become a haunt of jackals,10 a desolate11 place forever. No one will live there; no man will dwell12 in it."

A Message About Elam

34 This is the word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam,13 early in the reign of Zedekiah14 king of Judah: 35 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "See, I will break the bow15 of Elam, the mainstay of their might. 36 I will bring against Elam the four winds16 from the four quarters of the heavens;17 I will scatter them to the four winds, and there will not be a nation where Elam's exiles do not go. 37 I will shatter Elam before their foes, before those who seek their lives; I will bring disaster upon them, even my fierce anger,"18 declares the LORD. "I will pursue them with the sword19 until I have made an end of them. 38 I will set my throne in Elam and destroy her king and officials," declares the LORD. 39 "Yet I will restore20 the fortunes of Elam in days to come," declares the LORD.
