1The word of Yahweh that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning the Philistines, before that Pharaoh struck Gaza.
  2“This is what Yahweh says:

 Behold, waters rise up out of the north,

 and will become an overflowing stream,

 and will overflow the land and all that is in it,

 the city and those who dwell in it;

 and the men will cry out,

 and all the inhabitants of the land will wail.

 

 3 At the noise of the stamping of the hoofs of his strong ones,

 at the rushing of his chariots,

 at the rumbling of his wheels,

 the fathers do not look back to their children

 for feebleness of hands,

 

 4 because of the day that comes

 to destroy all the Philistines,

 to cut off from Tyre and Sidon

 every helper who remains.

 For Yahweh will destroy the Philistines,

 the remnant of the isle of Caphtor.

 

 5 Baldness will come upon Gaza;

 Ashkelon will become silent;

 you remnant on the plain,

 how long will you cut yourself?

 

 
6 
You sword of Yahweh,

 how long will it be before you be quiet?

 Put up yourself into your scabbard;

 rest, and be still.

 

 7 How can you be quiet,

 since Yahweh has given you a command?

 Against Ashkelon, and against the seashore,

 there has he appointed it.”
