Their camels1 will become plunder, and their large herds2 will be booty. I will scatter to the winds3 those who are in distant placesa4 and will bring disaster on them from every side," declares the LORD.
"Hazor5 will become a haunt of jackals,6 a desolate7 place forever. No one will live there; no man will dwell8 in it."
This is the word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam,9 early in the reign of Zedekiah10 king of Judah:
This is what the LORD Almighty says: "See, I will break the bow11 of Elam, the mainstay of their might.
I will bring against Elam the four winds12 from the four quarters of the heavens;13 I will scatter them to the four winds, and there will not be a nation where Elam's exiles do not go.
I will shatter Elam before their foes, before those who seek their lives; I will bring disaster upon them, even my fierce anger,"14 declares the LORD. "I will pursue them with the sword15 until I have made an end of them.
I will set my throne in Elam and destroy her king and officials," declares the LORD.
"Yet I will restore16 the fortunes of Elam in days to come," declares the LORD.
