The overthrow of JPharaoh's army.

I fainted in my sighing, and I find no
rest.

4 IT Thus shalt thou say unto him, The
Lord saith thus; Behold, ""that which I
have built will I break down, and that which
I have planted I will pluck up, even this
.whole land.

5 And seekest thou great things for thy-
self? seek them not: for behold, "I will
bring evil upon all flesh, saith the Lord :
but thy life will I give unto thee ^ for a prey
in all places whither thou goest.

CHAP. XLVL

1 Jeremiah prophesieth the overthrow of Pharaoh's army
at Euphrates, 13 and the conquest of Egypt by Nebu-
chadrezzar, 27 He comforteth Jacob in their chastise-
ment.

THE word of the Lord which came to
Jeremiah the prophet against "the
Gentiles ;

2 Against Egypt, ''against the army of
Pharaoh-necho king of Egypt, which was by
the river Euphrates in Carchemish, which
Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon smote in
the fourth ye&r of Jehoiakim the son of
Josiah king of Judah.

3 •= Order ye the buckler and shield, and
draw near to battle.

4 Harness the horses ; and get up, ye
horsemen, and stand forthwith your helmets;
furbish the spears, and put on the brigand-
ines.

5 Wherefore have I seen them dismayed
and turned away back? and their mighty
ones are t beaten down, and are t fled apace,
and look not back :ybr'' fear was round about,
saith the Lord.

6 Let not the swift flee away, nor the
mighty man escape : they shall ^stumble, and
fall toward the north by the river Euphrates.

7 Who is this that cometh up '"as a flood,
whose waters are moved as the rivers ?

8 Egypt riseth up like a flood, and his
waters are moved like the rivers; and he
saith, I will go up, and will cover the earth ;
I will destroy the city and the inhabitants
thereof.

9 Come up, ye horses ; and rage, ye cha-
riots ; and let the mighty men come forth :
fthe Ethiopians and fthe Libyans, that
handle the shield; and the Lydians, ethat
handle and bend the bow.

10 For this is ''the day of the Lord God
of hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may
avenge him of his adversaries : and ' the sword
shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made
drunk with their blood : for the Lord God of
hosts ''hath a sacrifice in the north country
by the river Euphrates.

11 'Go up into Gilead, and take ba.ra.

675



The conquest of Egypt foretold.

■"O virgin, the daughter of Egypt: in vain
shalt thou use many medicines; for t°thou
shalt not be cured.

12 The nations have heard of thy shame,
and thy cry hath filled the land : for the
mighty man hath stumbled against the
mighty, and they are fallen both together.

13 IT The word that the Lord spake to
Jeremiah the prophet, hovi^ Nebuchadrezzar
king of Babylon should come and ° smite the
land of Egypt.

14 Declare ye in Egypt, and publish in
Migdol, and publish in Noph and in Tah-
panhes : say ye, p Stand fast, and prepare
thee; for ^the sw^ord shall devour round
about thee.

15 Why are thy valiant men swept away?
they stood not, because the Lord did drive
them.

16 He t made many to fall, yea, ""one fell
upon another : and they said. Arise, and let
us go again to our own people, and to the
land of our nativity, from the oppressing
sword.

17 They did cry there, Pharaoh king of
Egypt is hut a noise ; he hath passed the
time appointed.

18 J.S I live, saith the King, ^ whose name
is The Lord of hosts. Surely as Tabor is
among the mountains, and as Carmel by the
sea, so shall he come.

19 O Hhou daughter dwelling in Egypt,
t furnish thyself "to go into captivity: for
Noph shall be waste and desolate without an
inhabitant.

20 Egypt is like a very fair ^heifer, hit de-
struction cometh; itcometh^out of the north.

21 Also her hired men are in the midst of
her like f fatted bullocks ; for they also are
turned back, and are fled away together :
they did not stand, because ^the day of their
calamity was come upon them, and the time
of their visitation.

22 ''The voice thereof shall go like a ser-
pent ; for they shall march with an army, and
come against her with axes, as hewers of
wood.

'23 They shall ^ cut down her forest, saith
the Lord, though it cannot be searched;
because they are more than "the grasshop-
pers, and are innumerable.

24 The daughter of Egypt shall be con-
founded ; she shall be delivered into the hand
of ^ the people of the north,

25 The Lord of hosts, the God of Israel,
saith; Behold, I will punish the ||t multitude
of *No, and Pharaoh, and Egypt, '"with their
gods, and their kings; even Pharaoh, and all
them that trust in him :

26 ^And I will deliver them into the hand

The destruction of the Philistines.

of those that seek their lives, and into the
hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon,
and into the hand of his servants : and i^ after-
ward it shall be inhabited, as in the days of
old, saith the Lord.

27 IF 'But fear not thou, O my servant
Jacob, and be not dismayed, O Israel : for
behold, I will save thee from afar off, and thy
seed from the land of their captivity ; and
Jacob shall return, and be in rest and at
ease, and none shall make him afraid.

28 Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant,
saith the Lord : for I am with thee ; for I
will make a full end of all the nations whither
I have driven thee : but I will not make ^ a
full end of thee, but correct thee in measure ;
yet will I II not leave thee wholly unpun-
ished.

CHAP. XLVIL

The destruction of the Philistines.

THE word of the Lord that came to
Jeremiah the prophet "against the Phi-
listines, ''before that Pharaoh smote t Gaza.

2 Thus saith the Lord ; Behold, ■= waters
rise up ''out of the north, and shall be an
overflowing flood, and shall overflow the
land, and f all that is therein ; the city,
and them that dwell therein : then the men
shall cry, and all the inhabitants of the land
shall howl.

3 At the "noise of the stamping of the
hoofs of his strong horses, at the rushing of
his chariots, and at the rumbling of his
wheels, the fathers shall not look back to
their children for feebleness of hands ;

4 Because of the day that cometh to spoil
all the Philistines, and to cut off from
•"Tyrus and Zidon every helper that re-
maineth : for the Lord will spoil the Phi-
listines, e the remnant of t the country of
^ Caphtor.

5 ' Baldness is come upon Gaza ; ^ Ash-
kelon is cut off with the remnant of their
valley : how long wilt thou ' cut thyself ?

6 O thou ""sword of the Lord, how long
will it be ere thou be quiet? t put up thyself
into thy scabbard, rest, and be still.

7 t How can it be quiet, seeing the Lord
hath " given it a charge against Ashkelon,
and against the sea shore ? there hath lie
"appointed it.

3 ''A voice of crying shall be from Horo-

4 Moab is destroyed ; her little ones have
caused a cry to be heard.

5 g For in the going up of Luhith t con-

down of Horonaim the enemies have heard a
cry of destruction.

6 ""Flee, save your lives, and be like || the

7 IF For because thou hast trusted in thy
works and in thy treasures, thou shalt also
be taken: and ^ Chemosh shall go forth into
captivity with his 'priests and his princes
together.

8 And "the spoiler shall come upon every
city, and no city shall escape : the valley also
shall perish, and the plain shall be destroyed,
as the Lord hath spoken.

9 " Give wings unto Moab, that it may flee
and get away : for the cities thereof shall be
desolate, without any to dwell therein.

10 "Cursed be he that doeth the work of
the Lord || deceitfully, and cursed be he that
keepeth back his sword from blood.

11 IT Moab hath been at ease from his
youth, and he p hath settled on his lees, and
hath not been emptied from vessel to vessel,
neither hath he gone intp captivity : therefore
his taste f remained in him, and his scent is
not changed.

12 Therefore, behold, the days come,saith
the Lord, that I will send unto him wan-
derers that shall cause him to wander, and
shall empty his vessels, and break their
bottles.

13 And Moab shall be ashamed of ^ Che-
mosh, as the house of Israel *■ was ashamed of

and his affliction hasteth fast.

19 O t inhabitant of ^ Aroer, « stand by the
way, and espy ; ask him that fleeth, and her
that escapeth, and say. What is done ?

20 Moab is confounded ; for it is broken
down : ''howl and cry ; tell ye it in s Arnon,
that Moab is spoiled,

21 And judgment is come upon ^ the plain
country; upon Holon, and upon Jahazah,
and upon Mephaath,

22 And upon Dibon, and upon Nebo, and
upon Beth-diblathaim,

23 And upon Kiria,thaim, and upon Beth-
gamul, and upon Beth-meon,

24 And upon 'Kerioth, and upon Bozrah,
and upon all the cities of the land of Moab,
far or near.

25 ''The horn of Moab is cut off", and his
'arm is broken, saith the Lord.

26 H ™Make ye him drunken; for he mag-
nified himself against the Lord : Moab also
shall wallow in his vomit, and he also shall
be in derision.

27 For "was not Israel a derision unto
thee ? ° was he found among thieves ? for
since thou spakest of him, thou || skippedst
for joy.

28 O ye that dwell in Moab, leave the
cities, and p dwell in the rock, and be like
ithe dove that maketh her nest in the sides
of the hole's mouth.

29 We have heard the ■■ pride of Moab,
(he is exceeding proud,) his loftiness, and his
arrogancy, and his pride, and the haughtiness
of his heart.

30 I know his wrath, saith the Lord;
but it shall not 6c so ; = || his lies shall not so
effiect it.

31 Therefore *will I howl for Moab, and
I will cry out for all Moab; mine heart shall
mourn for the men of Kir-heres.

32 "O vine of Sibmah, I will weep for
thee with the weeping of Jazer : thy plants
are gone over the sea, they reach even to the
sea of Jazer : the spoiler is fallen upon thy
summer fruits and upon thy vintage.

33 And ^joy and gladness is taken from
the plentiful field, and from the land of
Moab; and I have caused wine to fail from
the wine-presses : none shall tread with shout-
ing ; their shouting shall be no shouting,

34 y From the cry of Heshbon even unto
Elealeh, and even unto Jahaz, have they
uttered their voice, ^from Zoar even unto
Horonaim, as an heifer of three years old:
for the waters also of Nimrim shall be f de-

The judgment of Moah, ^c.

saith the Lord, ■'him that ofFereth in the
high places, and him that burneth incense to
his gods.

36 Therefore "mine heart shall sound for
Moab like pipes, and mine heart shall sound
like pipes for the men of Kir-heres : because
•= the riches that he hath gotten are perished.

37 For "i every head shall he bald, and
every beard f clipped: upon all the hands
shall he cuttings, and *=upon the loins sack-
cloth.

38 There shall he lamentation generally
upon all the house-tops of Moab, and in
the streets thereof: for I have broken Moab
hke ^ a vessel wherein is no pleasure, saith
the Lord.

39 They shall hovsrl, saying, Hovp is it
broken down! how hath Moab turned the
fback with shame! so shall Moab be a de-
rision and a dismaying to all them about him.

40 For thus saith the Lord; Behold, she
shall fly as an eagle, and shall ''spread his
wings over Moab.

41 ' II Kerioth is taken, and the strong
holds are surprised, and ^ the mighty men's
Hearts in Moab at that day shall be as the
heart of a woman in her pangs.

42 And Moab shall be destroyed 'from
heing a people, because he hath magnified
himself against the Lord.

43 "'Fear, and the pit, and the snare,
shall he upon thee, O inhabitant of Moab,
saith the Lord.

44 He that fleeth from the fear, shall fall
into the pit; and he that getteth up out of
the pit, shall be taken in the snare : for " I
will bring upon it, even upon Moab, the year
of their visitation, saith the Lord.

45 They that fled stood under the shadow
of Heshbon because of the force : but ° afire
shall come forth out of Heshbon, and aflame
from the midst of Sihon, and p shall devour
the corner of Moab, and the crown of the
head of the f tumultuous ones.

46 1 Wo be unto thee, O Moab ! the
people of Chemosh perisheth : for thy sons
are taken f captives, and thy daughters cap-
tives.

of Moab ^ in the latter days, saith the Lord.

shaU Israel be heir unto them that were his
heirs, saith the Lord.

3 Howl, O Heshbon, for Ai is spoiled:
cry, ye daughters of Rabbah, ^ gird you with
sackcloth ; lament, and run to and fro by
the hedges ; for || their king shall go into
captivity, and his ^priests and his princes
together.

4 Wherefore gloriest thou in the valleys,
II thy flowing valley, O ^ backsliding daughter ?
that trusted in her treasures, s saying, Who
shall come unto me ?

5 Behold, I will bring a fear upon thee,
saith the Lord God of hosts, from all those
that be about thee ; and ye shall be driven
out every man right forth; and none shall
gather up him that wandereth.

6 And '' afterward I will bring again the
captivity of the children of Amnion, saith the
Lord.

7 IF ' Concerning Edom, thus saith the
Lord of hosts : '' Is wisdom no more in
Teman? 'is counsel perished from the pru-
dent ? is their wisdom vanished ?

8 ""Flee ye, ||turn back, dwell deep, O
inhabitants of °I)edan; for I will bring the
calamity of Esau upon him, the time that
I will visit him.

9 If "grape-'gatherers come to thee, would
they not leave some gleaning-grapes ? if
thieves by night, they will destroy f till
they have enough.

10 p But I have made Esau bare, I have
uncovered his secret places, and he shall not
be able to hide himself: his seed is spoiled,
and his brethren, and his neighbours, and i he
is not.

11 Leave thy fatherless children, I will
preserve them alive ; and let thy widows trust
in me.

12 For thus saith the Lord ; Behold,
■■ they whose jiidgment was not to drink of
the cup, have assuredly drunken ; and art thou
he ^to shall altogether go unpunished? thou
shalt not go unpunished, but thou shalt surely
drink o/" it.

13 For "I have sworn by myself, saith
the LoRD,that'Bozrah shall become a de-
solation, a reproach, a waste, and a curse ;
and all the cities thereof shall be perpetual
wastes.

14 I have heard a "rumour from the
Lord, and an ambassador is sent unto the

678



of Damascus, of Kedar,

heathen, saying. Gather ye together, and
come against her, and rise up to the battle.

15 For lo, I will make thee small among
the heathen, and despised among men.

16 Thy terribleness hath deceived thee,
and the pride of thine heart, O thou that
dwellest in the clefts of the rock, that hold-
est the height of the hill : ^ though thou
shouldest make thy ynest as high as the
eagle, ^I will bring thee down from thence,
saith the Lord.

17 Also Edom shall be a desolation :
"every one that goeth by it shall be astonish-
ed, and shall hiss at all the plagues thereof.

18 ^ As in the overthrow of Sodom and
Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof,
saith the Lord, no man shall abide there,
neither shall a son of man dwell in it.

19 "'Behold, he shall come up like a Hon
from ^the swelling of Jordan against the
habitation of the strong : but I will sud-
denly make him run away from her: and
who is a chosen man, that I may appoint
over her? for *who is like me? and who
will 11 appoint me the time ? and *" who is
that shepherd that will stand before me ?

20 s Therefore hear the counsel of the
Lord, that he hath taken against Edom;
and his purposes, that he hath purposed
against the inhabitants of Teman: Surely
the least of the flock shall draw them out :
surely he shall make their habitations deso-
late with them.

21 ^ The eartn is moved at the noise of
their fall, at the cry the noise thereof was
heard in the fRed sea.

22 Behold, ' he shall come up and fly as
the eagle, and spread his wings over Bozrah :
and at that day shall the heart of the mighty
men of Edom be as the heart of a woman in
her pangs.

23 ir '' Concerning Damascus. Hamath is
confounded, and Arpad : for they have heard
evil tidings : they are t faint-hearted ; ' there
is sorrow ||on the sea; it cannot be quiet.

24 Damascus is waxed feeble, and turn-
eth herself to flee, and fear hath seized on
her : " anguish and sorrows have taken her,
as a woman in travail.

25 How is "the city of praise not left,
the city of my joy !

26 ° Therefore her young men shall fall
in her streets, and all the men of war shall
be cut off in that day, saith the Lord of
hosts.

27 And I will kindle a pfire in the wall of
Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces
of Ben-hadad.
