The destruction of the Philistines.
Jeremiah 47:1 These are the wordes, that the Lord spake vnto Ieremye the prophete, agaynst þe Philistines, before that Pharao smote the citye of Azah. Jeremiah 47:2 Thus sayth the Lorde: Beholde, there shall waters aryse out of the north: & shall growe to a greate floude, runnynge ouer and couerynge the lande, the cyties, and them that dwell therin. And the men shall crye, and all they that dwell in the lande, shall mourne Jeremiah 47:3 at the noyse and stampinge of theyr stronge barbed horses, at the shakyng of theyr charettes and at the romblynge of the wheles. The fathers shall not loke to their chyldren, so feable and wery shall their handes be: Jeremiah 47:4 at the same tyme when he shall be there, to destroye the whole lande of the Philistines. He shall make waste both Tirus, Sidon, and all other that are sworne vnto them. For the Lorde wyll destroye the Philistines, the remnaunt of the yle of Caphtor Jeremiah 47:5 Baldenesse is come vpon Azah, Ascalon with her other valleys shall kepe her peace. Howe longe wilt thou slaye, Jeremiah 47:6 O þu swearde of the Lorde? Whan wylt thou ceasse? Turne agayne into thy swete reste, and leaue of. Jeremiah 47:7 But howe can it cease, when the Lorde hym selfe hath geuen him a charge agaynste Ascalon, and raysed it vp agaynst the cityes of the see coast?
