Jeremiah 47:5-7 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
5 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?
6 “Sword of the Lord, you have not stopped.
How long will you keep fighting?
Go back into your scabbard!
Stop! Be still!
7 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.”
