Prophecy against Philistia

1 That which came as the word of the LORD to Jeremiah the prophet concerning the 1Philistines, before Pharaoh aconquered 2Gaza. 2 Thus says the LORD: "Behold, waters are going to rise from 3the north And become an overflowing torrent, And 4overflow the land and all its fullness, The city and those who live in it; And the men will 5cry out, And every inhabitant of the land will wail. 3 "Because of the noise of the b6galloping hoofs of his cstallions, The tumult of his chariots, and the rumbling of his wheels, The fathers have not turned back for their children, Because of the limpness of their hands, 4 On account of the day that is coming To 7destroy all the Philistines, To cut off from 8Tyre and Sidon Every ally that is left; For the LORD is going to destroy the Philistines, The remnant of the coastland of 9Caphtor. 5 "10Baldness has come upon Gaza; 11Ashkelon has been ruined. O remnant of their valley, How long will you 12gash yourself? 6 "Ah, 13sword of the LORD, How long will you not be quiet? Withdraw into your sheath; Be at rest and stay still.
