Jeremiah 47:5-7 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

The people from Gaza will be sad and shave their heads.
    The people from Ashkelon will be silenced.
    Survivors from the valley, how long will you cut yourselves?[a]

“Sword of the Lord, you have not stopped.
    How long will you keep fighting?
Go back into your scabbard[b]!
    Stop! Be still!
But how can the sword of the Lord rest?
    The Lord gave it a command.
He commanded it to attack
    the city of Ashkelon and the seacoast.”
