Jeremiah 47:4-6 Common English Bible (CEB)

Because the time is coming
    for the Philistines’ destruction,
    for cutting off from Tyre and Sidon
        anyone who might try to save Gaza,[a]
    because the Lord will destroy the Philistines,
    the few left from the island of Caphtor.
Mourning[b] will come upon Gaza;
    silence will cover Ashkelon,
        the few left in their valley.
How long will you gash yourselves in grief?[c]
    You sword of the Lord,
    how long until you are silent?
Return to your sheath;
    rest and be still!
