A Message Concerning the Philistines

1 The word of Yahweh that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning [the] Philistines {before}a Pharaoh attacked Gaza. 2 Thus says Yahweh: "Look, waters [are] rising from [the] north, and they will become as a raging torrent, and they will overflow [the] land, and that which fills it, [the] city and those who live in it. And the people will cry out, and every inhabitant of the land will wail, 3 from the sound of the stamping of the hoofs of his stallions, from the clattering of his chariots,b the noise of their wheels. Fathers do not turn to [their] children because of [the] slackness of [their] hands. 4 Because of the day that is coming to destroy all [the] Philistines, to cut off from Tyre and from Sidon every survivor [who could] help, for Yahweh [is] destroying [the] Philistines, the remnant of the coastland of Caphtor. 5 Baldness has come upon Gaza, Ashkelon is destroyed. O remnant of their valley, {how long}c will you cut yourself with a blade? 6 Ah, sword of Yahweh, {how long}d will you not be quiet? Gather to your sheath, keep quiet and stand still. 7 How can you be quiet when Yahweh has given an order to it? Against Ashkelon and against the shore of the sea, there he has appointed it."
