Jeremiah 47:4-6 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)

because of the day that is coming
    to destroy all the Philistines,
to cut off from Tyre and Sidon
    every helper that remains.
For the Lord is destroying the Philistines,
    the remnant of the coastland of Caphtor.
Baldness has come upon Gaza,
    Ashkelon is silenced.
O remnant of their power![a]
    How long will you gash yourselves?
Ah, sword of the Lord!
    How long until you are quiet?
Put yourself into your scabbard,
    rest and be still!

Jeremiah 47:4-6 New International Version (NIV)

For the day has come
    to destroy all the Philistines
and to remove all survivors
    who could help Tyre and Sidon.
The Lord is about to destroy the Philistines,
    the remnant from the coasts of Caphtor.[a]
Gaza will shave her head in mourning;
    Ashkelon will be silenced.
You remnant on the plain,
    how long will you cut yourselves?

“‘Alas, sword of the Lord,
    how long till you rest?
Return to your sheath;
    cease and be still.’
