This message concerning Elam came to the prophet Jeremiah from the LORD at the beginning of the reign of King Zedekiah of Judah.
This is what the LORD of Heaven’s Armies says: “I will destroy the archers of Elam— the best of their forces.
I will bring enemies from all directions, and I will scatter the people of Elam to the four winds. They will be exiled to countries around the world.
I myself will go with Elam’s enemies to shatter it. In my fierce anger, I will bring great disaster upon the people of Elam,” says the LORD . “Their enemies will chase them with the sword until I have destroyed them completely.
I will set my throne in Elam,” says the LORD, “and I will destroy its king and officials.
But I will restore the fortunes of Elam in days to come. I, the LORD, have spoken!”
