34 Soon after Zedekiah became king of Judah, the Lord spoke this word to Jeremiah the prophet. This message is to the nation of Elam.
35 This is what the Lord All-Powerful says: "I will soon break Elam's bow, its greatest strength.
36 I will bring the four winds against Elam from the four corners of the skies. I will scatter its people everywhere the four winds blow; its captives will go to every nation.
37 I will terrify Elam in front of their enemies, who want to destroy them. and show them how angry I am!" says the Lord. "I will send a sword to chase Elam until I have killed them all.
38 I will set up my throne in Elam to show that I am king, and I will destroy its king and its officers!" says the Lord.
39 "But I will make good things happen to Elam again in the future," says the Lord.
