Jeremiah 47:4-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
4 Because of the day that is coming
to destroy all the Philistines
And cut off from Tyre and Sidon
the last of their allies.
Yes, the Lord is destroying the Philistines,
the remnant from the coasts of Caphtor.
5 Baldness is visited upon Gaza,
Ashkelon is reduced to silence;
Ashdod, remnant of their strength,
how long will you gash yourself?
6 Ah! Sword of the Lord!
When will you find rest?
Return to your scabbard;
stop, be still!
