Jeremiah 47:5-7 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)
5 Baldness has come upon Gaza,
Ashkelon is silenced.
O remnant of their power!
How long will you gash yourselves?
6 Ah, sword of the Lord!
How long until you are quiet?
Put yourself into your scabbard,
rest and be still!
7 How can it be quiet,
when the Lord has given it an order?
Against Ashkelon and against the seashore—
there he has appointed it.
