47 That which came as the word of the Lord to Jeremiah the prophet concerning the Philistines, before Pharaoh [a]conquered Gaza.2 Thus says the Lord:
“Behold, waters are going to rise from the north And become an overflowing torrent, And overflow the land and all its fullness, The city and those who live in it; And the men will cry out, And every inhabitant of the land will wail. 3 “Because of the noise of the [b]galloping hoofs of his [c]stallions, The tumult of his chariots, and the rumbling of his wheels, The fathers have not turned back for their children, Because of the limpness of their hands, 4 On account of the day that is coming To destroy all the Philistines, To cut off from Tyre and Sidon Every ally that is left; For the Lord is going to destroy the Philistines, The remnant of the coastland of Caphtor. 5 “Baldness has come upon Gaza; Ashkelon has been ruined. O remnant of their valley, How long will you gash yourself? 6 “Ah, sword of the Lord, How long will you not be quiet? Withdraw into your sheath; Be at rest and stay still. 7 “How can [d]it be quiet, When the Lord has given it an order? Against Ashkelon and against the seacoast— There He has assigned it.”
