The judgment of the Ammonites.
Jeremiah 49:1 Of the sons of Ammon-Thus, saith Yahweh: Hath Israel no, sons? Hath he no, heir? Why hath, Malkam, taken possession, of Gad, Or have, his people, in the cities thereof, made their dwelling? Jeremiah 49:2 Therefore, lo! days are coming, Declareth Yahweh, When I will cause to be heard against Rabbah of the sons of Ammon, an alarm of war, So shall she become a mound of desolation, And, her villages, with fire, shall blaze,Then shall, Israel, inherit them, who inherited him, Saith Yahweh. Jeremiah 49:3 Howl, O Heshbon, for Ai is spoiled, Make outcry, ye daughters of Rabbah, Gird you with sackcloth, Lament ye, and run to and fro among the fences,For, Malkam, into captivity, shall go, His priests and his princes, together. Jeremiah 49:4 Why shouldst thou glory in the vales, The flowing of thy vale, O apostate, daughter? She who is trusting in her treasures, [saying,] Who, shall invade, me? Jeremiah 49:5 Behold me! bringing upon thee, terror, Declareth My Lord, Yahweh of hosts, From all who are round about thee,And ye shall be driven out every man before it, And there shall be none to bring home the wanderer;
Jeremiah 49:6 But, afterwards, will I bring back the captivity of the sons of Ammon, Declareth Yahweh.
The judgment of Edom,
Jeremiah 49:7 Of EdomThus, saith Yahweh of hosts, Is there, no longer, wisdom in Teman? Hath counsel perished from the discerning? Is, their wisdom, corrupt? Jeremiah 49:8 Flee ye, turn, go down deep to dwell, O inhabitant of Dedan,For, the doom of Esau, have I brought in upon him, The time of his visitation. Jeremiah 49:9 If, grape-gatherers, came to thee, Would they not leave, gleanings? If, thieves in the night, Would they not have taken away what sufficed them? Jeremiah 49:10 But, I, have stripped Esau bare, I have uncovered his secret places, And, to conceal himself, shall he not be able! Spoiled, are his seed, and his brethren, and his neighbours, and he is, not. Jeremiah 49:11 Leave thy fatherless children, I, will preserve them alive,And, thy widows, In me, let them trust. Jeremiah 49:12 For, thus, saith YahwehLo! they who had not been adjudged to drink the cup, shall surely drink, And art, thou, the one to go, unpunished? Thou shalt not go unpunished, but, shalt surely drink. Jeremiah 49:13 For, by myself, have I sworn, Declareth Yahweh, That, Bozrah, shall become, an astonishment, a reproach, and a desolation, and a contempt,And, all her cities, shall become age-abiding desolations. Jeremiah 49:14 A report, have I heard from Yahweh, Yea, an envoy, throughout the nations, hath been sent,Gather yourselves together, and come against her, And arise to the battle. Jeremiah 49:15 For lo! Small, have I made thee among the nations,Despised among men! Jeremiah 49:16 Thy monstrous thing, hath deceived thee, The insolence of thy heart, O thou that inhabitest the hidden recesses of the cliff, That holdest fast the height of the hill,Though thou set high, as an eagle, thy nest, From thence, will I bring thee down, Declareth Yahweh; Jeremiah 49:17 So shall, Edom, become, an astonishment,Every one passing by her, will be astonished and hiss, over all her plagues: Jeremiah 49:18 Like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah and her neighbours, Saith Yahweh,There shall not dwell therea man, Nor sojourn thereinany son of the earth-born. Jeremiah 49:19 Lo! like a lion, will he come up from the majesty of the Jordan, unto the pasture perennial, But I will winkI will make him run away therefrom, Who, then shall be the Chosen One whom, over it, I may set in charge? For who, shall be like unto, me? And who, shall appoint, me, a time? And who, is, the Shepherd, that shall stand before, me? Jeremiah 49:20 Wherefore, hear ye, The counsel of Yahweh, which he hath counseled against Edom, And his devices which he hath devised against the inhabitants of Teman,Surely the little ones of the flock, shall drag them away, Surely he will cause their fold to be astounded over them. Jeremiah 49:21 At the noise of their fall, hath trembled the earth, At the outcry, in the Red Sea, was heard its noise. Jeremiah 49:22 Lo! as an eagle, he shall mount and dart, and spread his wings over Bozrah,So shall the heart of the heroes of Edom, in that day, become as the heart of a woman in her pain.
Jeremiah 49:23 Of Damascus, Turned pale, have Hamath and Arpad, For, a calamitous report, have they heardthey tremble,In the sea, is anxiety, it cannot, rest. Jeremiah 49:24 Enfeebled, is Damascus, She hath turned to flee, But, terror, hath seized her,Anguish and pangs, have seized her, as a woman in childbirth. Jeremiah 49:25 Alas! is she not forsakenThe city so praised! The citadel I rejoiced in! Jeremiah 49:26 Therefore, shall her young men fall, in her broadways,And, all her men of war, shall be silent in that day, Declareth Yahweh of hosts; Jeremiah 49:27 Then will I kindle a fire in the walls of Damascus,And it shall devour the palaces of Ben-hadad.
Jeremiah 49:28 Of Kedar, And of the kingdoms of Hazor, Which Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon smoteThus, saith Yahweh,Arise ye, go up against Kedar, So shall they spoil the sons of the East: Jeremiah 49:29 Their tents and their flocks, shall they take, And, their curtains, and all their baggage, and their camels, shall they carry off for themselves,And shall cry out unto them, Terror round about!
Jeremiah 49:30 Flee, remove far away, go deep to dwell, Ye inhabitants of Hazor, Urgeth Yahweh; For Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylonhath counseled against you, a counsel, And devised against you a device. Jeremiah 49:31 Arise ye, go up against a nation at easedwelling securely, Commandeth Yahweh,Having neither doors nor bars, Alone, do they dwell: Jeremiah 49:32 So shall, their camels, become, a prey, And, the throng of their cattle, a spoil, Then will I scatter them to every wind, even the clipt-beards,And, from all sides of him, will I bring in their doom, Declareth Yahweh. Jeremiah 49:33 So shall Hazor become, A habitation of jackals, An astonishment, unto times age-abiding: There shall not dwell therea man, Nor sojourn thereina son of the earth-born.
and of Elam.
Jeremiah 49:34 So much of the word of Yahweh as came unto Jeremiah the prophet, Against Elam,in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying: Jeremiah 49:35 Thus, saith Yahweh of hosts,Behold me! breaking the bow of Elam,The beginning, of their might; Jeremiah 49:36 Then will I bring in against Elam, four winds, from the four quarters of the heavens, And will scatter, them to all these winds,And there shall be no nation, whither the outcasts of Elam, shall not come; Jeremiah 49:37 And I will cause Elam to be dismayed, Before their enemies, Even before them who are seeking their life, So will I bring upon them calamity, Even the glow of mine anger, Declareth Yahweh,And will send after them the sword, until I have made an end of them; Jeremiah 49:38 And I will set my throne in Elam,And will destroy, from thence, king and princes, Declareth Yahweh;
The restoration of Elam.
Jeremiah 49:39 But it shall come to pass, In the afterpart of the days, That I will bring back the captivity of Elam, Declareth Yahweh.
