A message came to me from the Lord. It was about Elam. It came shortly after Zedekiah became king of Judah.
The LORD who rules over all said, "Elam's bow is the secret of its strength. But I will break it.
I will bring the four winds against Elam. I will bring them from all four directions. I will scatter Elam's people to the four winds. They will be taken away to every nation on earth.
I will use Elam's enemies to smash them. Those who are trying to take their lives will kill them. I will bring trouble on Elam's people. My anger will burn against them," announces the Lord. "I will chase them with swords. I will hunt them down until I have destroyed them.
I will set up my throne in Elam. I will destroy its king and officials," announces the Lord.
"But in days to come I will bless Elam with great success again," announces the Lord.
