Jeremiah 47 (WEBP)

[1] Yahweh’s word that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning the Philistines, before Pharaoh struck Gaza.
[2] Yahweh says: “Behold, waters rise up out of the north, and will become an overflowing stream, and will overflow the land and all that is therein, the city and those who dwell therein. The men will cry, and all the inhabitants of the land will wail.
[3] At the noise of the stamping of the hoofs of his strong ones, at the rushing of his chariots, at the rumbling of his wheels, the fathers don’t look back for their children because their hands are so feeble,
[4] because of the day that comes to destroy all the Philistines, to cut off from Tyre and Sidon every helper who remains; for Yahweh will destroy the Philistines, the remnant of the isle of Caphtor.
[5] Baldness has come on Gaza; Ashkelon is brought to nothing. You remnant of their valley, how long will you cut yourself?
[6] “ ‘You sword of Yahweh, how long will it be before you are quiet? Put yourself back into your scabbard; rest, and be still.’
[7] “How can you be quiet, since Yahweh has given you a command? Against Ashkelon, and against the seashore, there he has appointed it.”

Jeremiah 47 (KJVS)

[1] The word H1697 of the LORD H3068 that came to Jeremiah H3414 the prophet H5030 against the Philistines H6430, before that Pharaoh H6547 smote H5221 (8686) Gaza H5804.
[2] Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068; Behold, waters H4325 rise up H5927 (8802) out of the north H6828, and shall be an overflowing H7857 (8802) flood H5158, and shall overflow H7857 (8799) the land H776, and all that is therein H4393; the city H5892, and them that dwell H3427 (8802) therein: then the men H120 shall cry H2199 (8804), and all the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of the land H776 shall howl H3213 (8689).
[3] At the noise H6963 of the stamping H8161 of the hoofs H6541 of his strong H47 [horses], at the rushing H7494 of his chariots H7393, [and at] the rumbling H1995 of his wheels H1534, the fathers H1 shall not look back H6437 (8689) to [their] children H1121 for feebleness H7510 of hands H3027;
[4] Because of the day H3117 that cometh H935 (8802) to spoil H7703 (8800) all the Philistines H6430, [and] to cut off H3772 (8687) from Tyrus H6865 and Zidon H6721 every helper H5826 (8802) that remaineth H8300: for the LORD H3068 will spoil H7703 (8802) the Philistines H6430, the remnant H7611 of the country H339 of Caphtor H3731.
[5] Baldness H7144 is come H935 (8804) upon Gaza H5804; Ashkelon H831 is cut off H1820 (8738) [with] the remnant H7611 of their valley H6010: how long wilt thou cut H1413 (8704) thyself?
[6] O H1945 thou sword H2719 of the LORD H3068, how long [will it be] ere H3808 thou be quiet H8252 (8799)? put up H622 (8734) thyself into thy scabbard H8593, rest H7280 (8734), and be still H1826 (8798).
[7] How can it be quiet H8252 (8799), seeing the LORD H3068 hath given it a charge H6680 (8765) against Ashkelon H831, and against the sea H3220 shore H2348? there hath he appointed H3259 (8804) it.

Young’s Literal Translation

Jeremiah 47 (YLT)

[1] That which hath been the word of Jehovah unto Jeremiah concerning the Philistines, before Pharaoh smiteth Gaza:
[2] ‘Thus said Jehovah: Lo, waters are coming up from the north, And have been for an overflowing stream, And they overflow the land and its fulness, The city, and the inhabitants in it, And men have cried out, And howled hath every inhabitant of the land.
[3] From the sound of the stamping of the hoofs of his mighty ones, From the rushing of his chariot, the noise of his wheels, Fathers have not turned unto sons, From feebleness of hands,
[4] Because of the day that hath come to spoil all the Philistines, To cut off to Tyre and to Zidon every helping remnant. For Jehovah is spoiling the Philistines, The remnant of the isle of Caphtor.
[5] Come hath baldness unto Gaza, Cut off hath been Ashkelon, O remnant of their valley, Till when dost thou cut thyself?
[6] Ho, sword of Jehovah, till when art thou not quiet? Be removed unto thy sheath, rest and cease.
[7] How shall it be quiet, And Jehovah hath given a charge to it, Against Ashkelon, and against the sea shore? There hath He appointed it!’
