Against the Philistines. 1This is the word that came from the LORD to the prophet Jeremiah concerning the Philistines, before Pharaoh attacked Gaza: x Ez 25, 15f; Zep 2, 4 . 2Thus says the LORD:

* Behold: waters are rising from the north, a torrent in flood; It shall flood the land and all that is in it, the cities and their people. All the people of the land set up a wailing cry. 3They hear the stamping hooves of his steeds, the rattling chariots, the rumbling wheels. Fathers turn not to save their children; their hands fall helpless 4Because of the day which has come to ruin all the Philistines, And cut off from Tyre and Sidon* the last of their allies. Yes, the LORD is destroying the Philistines, the remnant from the coasts of Caphtor. y Jer 25, 22; Ez 25, 16f; Am 1, 8; 9, 7 . 5Gaza is shaved bald, z Am 1, 7 . Ashkelon is reduced to silence; Ashdod, the remnant of their strength, how long will you gash yourself?* 6Alas, sword of the LORD! how long till you find rest? Return into your scabbard; stop, be still!* 7How can it find rest when the LORD has commanded it? Against Ashkelon and the seashore he has appointed it. a Zep 2, 5f .
