Jeremiah 49:2-12 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
2 I will punish you for this," says the LORD, "by destroying your city of Rabbah. It will become a desolate heap, and the neighboring towns will be burned. Then Israel will come and take back the land you took from her," says the LORD. 3 "Cry out, O Heshbon, for the town of Ai is destroyed. Weep, O people of Rabbah! Put on your clothes of mourning. Weep and wail, hiding in the hedges, for your god Molech will be exiled along with his princes and priests. 4 You are proud of your fertile valleys, but they will soon be ruined. You rebellious daughter, you trusted in your wealth and thought no one could ever harm you. 5 But look! I will bring terror upon you," says the Lord, the LORD Almighty. "Your neighbors will chase you from your land, and no one will help your exiles as they flee. 6 But afterward I will restore the fortunes of the Ammonites," says the LORD. 7 This message was given concerning Edom.This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Where are all the wise men of Teman? Is there no one left to give wise counsel? 8 Turn and flee! Hide in deep caves, you people of Dedan! For when I bring disaster on Edom, a I will punish you, too! 9 Those who harvest grapes always leave a few for the poor. If thieves came at night, even they would not take everything. 10 But I will strip bare the land of Edom, and there will be no place left to hide. Its children, its brothers, and its neighbors -- all will be destroyed -- and Edom itself will be no more. 11 But I will preserve the orphans who remain among you. Your widows, too, will be able to depend on me for help." 12 And this is what the LORD says: "If the innocent must suffer, how much more must you! You will not go unpunished! You must drink this cup of judgment!
