35 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, 'Behold, I am going to 3break the bow of Elam, The finest of their might.
36 'I will bring upon Elam the 4four winds From the four ends of heaven, And will 5scatter them to all these winds; And there will be no nation To which the outcasts of Elam will not go.
37 'So I will shatter Elam before their enemies And before those who seek their lives; And I will 6bring calamity upon them, Even My 7fierce anger,' declares the LORD, 'And I will 8send out the sword after them Until I have consumed them.
38 'Then I will set My throne in Elam And destroy out of it king and princes,' Declares the LORD.
39 'But it will come about in the last days That I will 9restore the fortunes of Elam,' " Declares the LORD.
