The destruction of the Philistines.
Jeremiah 47:1 These are the wordes, that the Lorde spake vnto Ieremye the Prophete agaynste the Phylystines, before þe Pharao smote the cytye of Azah. Jeremiah 47:2 Thus sayeth the Lorde: Beholde, there shall waters aryse oute of the Northe: & shall growe to a greate floude, runnynge ouer and coueryng þe land, the cytyes, and them that dwell therein. And the men shall crye, and al they þt dwel in the lande, shall mourne Jeremiah 47:3 at the noyse & stampynge of theyr stronge barbed horses, at the shakynge of theyr charettes and at the romblynge of the wheles. The fathers shall not loke to theyr chyldren, so feable and wery shall theyr 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 Cirus, Sidon and all other that are sworne vnto them. For the Lorde wyll destroye all Palestina and the other Iles, that be deuyded from the countre. Jeremiah 47:5 Baldnesse is come vpon Azah, Ascalon wyth her other valleys shall kepe her peace. Howe longe wylte thou slaye, Jeremiah 47:6 O thou sweard of the Lord? Turne agayne into thy sheeth, reste, and leaue of. Jeremiah 47:7 But howe can it ceasse, when the Lorde hym selfe hath geuen hym a charge agaynste Ascalon, and raysed it vp agaynste the cytyes of the seacoast?
