The word of the Lord that came to the prophet Jeremiah concerning Elam, at the beginning of the reign of King Zedekiah of Judah.
Thus says the Lord of hosts: I am going to break the bow of Elam, the mainstay of their might;
and I will bring upon Elam the four winds from the four quarters of heaven; and I will scatter them to all these winds, and there shall be no nation to which the exiles from Elam shall not come.
I will terrify Elam before their enemies, and before those who seek their life; I will bring disaster upon them, my fierce anger, says the Lord. I will send the sword after them, until I have consumed them;
and I will set my throne in Elam, and destroy their king and officials, says the Lord.
But in the latter days I will restore the fortunes of Elam, says the Lord.
