Jeremiah 49 (WEBP)

[1] Of the children of Ammon. Yahweh says: “Has Israel no sons? Has he no heir? Why then does Malcam possess Gad, and his people dwell in its cities?
[2] Therefore behold, the days come,” says Yahweh, “that I will cause an alarm of war to be heard against Rabbah of the children of Ammon, and it will become a desolate heap, and her daughters will be burned with fire; then Israel will possess those who possessed him,” says Yahweh.
[3] “Wail, Heshbon, for Ai is laid waste! Cry, you daughters of Rabbah! Clothe yourself in sackcloth. Lament, and run back and forth among the fences; for Malcam will go into captivity, his priests and his princes together.
[4] Why do you boast in the valleys, your flowing valley, backsliding daughter? You trusted in her treasures, saying, ‘Who will come to me?’
[5] Behold, I will bring a terror on you,” says the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, “from all who are around you. All of you will be driven completely out, and there will be no one to gather together the fugitives.
[6] “But afterward I will reverse the captivity of the children of Ammon,” says Yahweh.
[7] Of Edom, Yahweh of Armies says: “Is wisdom no more in Teman? Has counsel perished from the prudent? Has their wisdom vanished?
[8] Flee! Turn back! Dwell in the depths, inhabitants of Dedan; for I will bring the calamity of Esau on him when I visit him.
[9] If grape gatherers came to you, would they not leave some gleaning grapes? If thieves came by night, wouldn’t they steal until they had enough?
[10] But I have made Esau bare, I have uncovered his secret places, and he will not be able to hide himself. His offspring is destroyed, with his brothers and his neighbors; and he is no more.
[11] Leave your fatherless children. I will preserve them alive. Let your widows trust in me.”
[12] For Yahweh says: “Behold, they to whom it didn’t pertain to drink of the cup will certainly drink; and are you he who will altogether go unpunished? You won’t go unpunished, but you will surely drink.
[13] For I have sworn by myself,” says Yahweh, “that Bozrah will become an astonishment, a reproach, a waste, and a curse. All its cities will be perpetual wastes.”
[14] I have heard news from Yahweh, and an ambassador is sent among the nations, saying, “Gather yourselves together! Come against her! Rise up to the battle!”
[15] “For, behold, I have made you small among the nations, and despised among men.
[16] As for your terror, the pride of your heart has deceived you, O you who dwell in the clefts of the rock, who hold the height of the hill, though you should make your nest as high as the eagle, I will bring you down from there,” says Yahweh.
[17] “Edom will become an astonishment. Everyone who passes by it will be astonished, and will hiss at all its plagues.
[18] As in the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah and its neighbor cities,” says Yahweh, “no man will dwell there, neither will any son of man live therein.
[19] “Behold, he will come up like a lion from the pride of the Jordan against the strong habitation; for I will suddenly make them run away from it, and whoever is chosen, I will appoint him over it. For who is like me? Who will appoint me a time? Who is the shepherd who will stand before me?”
[20] Therefore hear the counsel of Yahweh, that he has taken against Edom, and his purposes that he has purposed against the inhabitants of Teman: Surely they will drag them away, the little ones of the flock. Surely he will make their habitation desolate over them.
[21] The earth trembles at the noise of their fall; there is a cry, the noise which is heard in the Red Sea.
[22] Behold, he will come up and fly as the eagle, and spread out his wings against Bozrah. The heart of the mighty men of Edom at that day will be as the heart of a woman in her pangs.
[23] Of Damascus: “Hamath and Arpad are confounded, for they have heard evil news. They have melted away. There is sorrow on the sea. It can’t be quiet.
[24] Damascus has grown feeble, she turns herself to flee, and trembling has seized her. Anguish and sorrows have taken hold of her, as of a woman in travail.
[25] How is the city of praise not forsaken, the city of my joy?
[26] Therefore her young men will fall in her streets, and all the men of war will be brought to silence in that day,” says Yahweh of Armies.
[27] “I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it will devour the palaces of Ben Hadad.”
[28] Of Kedar, and of the kingdoms of Hazor, which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon struck, Yahweh says: “Arise, go up to Kedar, and destroy the children of the east.
[29] They will take their tents and their flocks. they will carry away for themselves their curtains, all their vessels, and their camels; and they will cry to them, ‘Terror on every side!’
[30] Flee! Wander far off! Dwell in the depths, you inhabitants of Hazor,” says Yahweh; “for Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon has taken counsel against you, and has conceived a purpose against you.
[31] Arise! Go up to a nation that is at ease, that dwells without care,” says Yahweh; “that has neither gates nor bars, that dwells alone.
[32] Their camels will be a booty, and the multitude of their livestock a plunder. I will scatter to all winds those who have the corners of their beards cut off; and I will bring their calamity from every side of them,” says Yahweh.
[33] Hazor will be a dwelling place of jackals, a desolation forever. No man will dwell there, neither will any son of man live therein.”
[34] Yahweh’s word that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying,
[35] “Yahweh of Armies says: ‘Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.
[36] I will bring on Elam the four winds from the four quarters of the sky, and will scatter them toward all those winds. There will be no nation where the outcasts of Elam will not come.
[37] I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before those who seek their life. I will bring evil on them, even my fierce anger,’ says Yahweh; ‘and I will send the sword after them, until I have consumed them.
[38] I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from there king and princes,’ says Yahweh.
[39] ‘But it will happen in the latter days that I will reverse the captivity of Elam,’ says Yahweh.”

Jeremiah 49 (KJVS)

[1] Concerning the Ammonites H1121 H5983, thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068; Hath Israel H3478 no sons H1121? hath he no heir H3423 (8802)? why [then] doth their king H4428 inherit H3423 (8804) Gad H1410, and his people H5971 dwell H3427 (8804) in his cities H5892?
[2] Therefore, behold, the days H3117 come H935 (8802), saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, that I will cause an alarm H8643 of war H4421 to be heard H8085 (8689) in Rabbah H7237 of the Ammonites H1121 H5983; and it shall be a desolate H8077 heap H8510, and her daughters H1323 shall be burned H3341 (8799) with fire H784: then shall Israel H3478 be heir H3423 (8804) unto them that were his heirs H3423 (8802), saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.
[3] Howl H3213 (8685), O Heshbon H2809, for Ai H5857 is spoiled H7703 (8795): cry H6817 (8798), ye daughters H1323 of Rabbah H7237, gird H2296 (8798) you with sackcloth H8242; lament H5594 (8798), and run to and fro H7751 (8708) by the hedges H1448; for their king H4428 shall go H3212 (8799) into captivity H1473, [and] his priests H3548 and his princes H8269 together H3162.
[4] Wherefore gloriest H1984 (8691) thou in the valleys H6010, thy flowing H2100 (8802) valley H6010, O backsliding H7728 daughter H1323? that trusted H982 (8802) in her treasures H214, [saying], Who shall come H935 (8799) unto me?
[5] Behold, I will bring H935 (8688) a fear H6343 upon thee, saith H5002 (8803) the Lord H136 GOD H3069 of hosts H6635, from all those that be about H5439 thee; and ye shall be driven out H5080 (8738) every man H376 right forth H6440; and none shall gather up H6908 (8764) him that wandereth H5074 (8802).
[6] And afterward H310 I will bring again H7725 (8686) the captivity H7622 of the children H1121 of Ammon H5983, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.
[7] Concerning Edom H123, thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635; [Is] wisdom H2451 no more in Teman H8487? is counsel H6098 perished H6 (8804) from the prudent H995 (8801)? is their wisdom H2451 vanished H5628 (8738)?
[8] Flee H5127 (8798) ye, turn back H6437 (8717), dwell H3427 (8800) deep H6009 (8689), O inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Dedan H1719; for I will bring H935 (8689) the calamity H343 of Esau H6215 upon him, the time H6256 [that] I will visit H6485 (8804) him.
[9] If grapegatherers H1219 (8802) come H935 (8804) to thee, would they not leave H7604 (8686) [some] gleaning grapes H5955? if thieves H1590 by night H3915, they will destroy H7843 (8689) till they have enough H1767.
[10] But I have made Esau H6215 bare H2834 (8804), I have uncovered H1540 (8765) his secret places H4565, and he shall not be able H3201 (8799) to hide H2247 (8736) himself: his seed H2233 is spoiled H7703 (8795), and his brethren H251, and his neighbours H7934, and he [is] not.
[11] Leave H5800 (8798) thy fatherless children H3490, I will preserve [them] alive H2421 (8762); and let thy widows H490 trust H982 (8799) in me.
[12] For thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068; Behold, they whose judgment H4941 [was] not to drink H8354 (8800) of the cup H3563 have assuredly H8354 (8800) drunken H8354 (8799); and [art] thou he [that] shall altogether H5352 (8800) go unpunished H5352 (8735)? thou shalt not go unpunished H5352 (8735), but thou shalt surely H8354 (8800) drink H8354 (8799) [of it].
[13] For I have sworn H7650 (8738) by myself, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068, that Bozrah H1224 shall become a desolation H8047, a reproach H2781, a waste H2721, and a curse H7045; and all the cities H5892 thereof shall be perpetual H5769 wastes H2723.
[14] I have heard H8085 (8804) a rumour H8052 from the LORD H3068, and an ambassador H6735 is sent H7971 (8803) unto the heathen H1471, [saying], Gather ye together H6908 (8690), and come H935 (8798) against her, and rise up H6965 (8798) to the battle H4421.
[15] For, lo, I will make H5414 (8804) thee small H6996 among the heathen H1471, [and] despised H959 (8803) among men H120.
[16] Thy terribleness H8606 hath deceived H5377 (8689) thee, [and] the pride H2087 of thine heart H3820, O thou that dwellest H7931 (8802) in the clefts H2288 of the rock H5553, that holdest H8610 (8802) the height H4791 of the hill H1389: though thou shouldest make thy nest H7064 as high H1361 (8686) as the eagle H5404, I will bring thee down H3381 (8686) from thence, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.
[17] Also Edom H123 shall be a desolation H8047: every one that goeth H5674 (8802) by it shall be astonished H8074 (8799), and shall hiss H8319 (8799) at all the plagues H4347 thereof.
[18] As in the overthrow H4114 of Sodom H5467 and Gomorrah H6017 and the neighbour H7934 [cities] thereof, saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, no man H376 shall abide H3427 (8799) there, neither shall a son H1121 of man H120 dwell H1481 (8799) in it.
[19] Behold, he shall come up H5927 (8799) like a lion H738 from the swelling H1347 of Jordan H3383 against the habitation H5116 of the strong H386: but I will suddenly H7280 (8686) make him run away H7323 (8686) from her: and who [is] a chosen H977 (8803) [man, that] I may appoint H6485 (8799) over her? for who [is] like me? and who will appoint me the time H3259 (8686)? and who [is] that shepherd H7462 (8802) that will stand H5975 (8799) before H6440 me?
[20] Therefore hear H8085 (8798) the counsel H6098 of the LORD H3068, that he hath taken H3289 (8804) against Edom H123; and his purposes H4284, that he hath purposed H2803 (8804) against the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Teman H8487: Surely the least H6810 of the flock H6629 shall draw them out H5498 (8799): surely he shall make their habitations H5116 desolate H8074 (8686) with them.
[21] The earth H776 is moved H7493 (8804) at the noise H6963 of their fall H5307 (8800), at the cry H6818 the noise H6963 thereof was heard H8085 (8738) in the Red H5488 sea H3220.
[22] Behold, he shall come up H5927 (8799) and fly H1675 (8799) as the eagle H5404, and spread H6566 (8799) his wings H3671 over Bozrah H1224: and at that day H3117 shall the heart H3820 of the mighty men H1368 of Edom H123 be as the heart H3820 of a woman H802 in her pangs H6887 (8688).
[23] Concerning Damascus H1834. Hamath H2574 is confounded H954 (8804), and Arpad H774: for they have heard H8085 (8804) evil H7451 tidings H8052: they are fainthearted H4127 (8738); [there is] sorrow H1674 on the sea H3220; it cannot H3201 (8799) be quiet H8252 (8687).
[24] Damascus H1834 is waxed feeble H7503 (8804), [and] turneth H6437 (8689) herself to flee H5127 (8800), and fear H7374 hath seized H2388 (8689) on [her]: anguish H6869 and sorrows H2256 have taken H270 (8804) her, as a woman in travail H3205 (8802).
[25] How is the city H5892 of praise H8416 not left H5800 (8795), the city H7151 of my joy H4885!
[26] Therefore her young men H970 shall fall H5307 (8799) in her streets H7339, and all the men H582 of war H4421 shall be cut off H1826 (8735) in that day H3117, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635.
[27] And I will kindle H3341 (8689) a fire H784 in the wall H2346 of Damascus H1834, and it shall consume H398 (8804) the palaces H759 of Benhadad H1130.
[28] Concerning Kedar H6938, and concerning the kingdoms H4467 of Hazor H2674, which Nebuchadrezzar H5019 king H4428 of Babylon H894 shall smite H5221 (8689), thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068; Arise H6965 (8798) ye, go up H5927 (8798) to Kedar H6938, and spoil H7703 (8798) the men H1121 of the east H6924.
[29] Their tents H168 and their flocks H6629 shall they take away H3947 (8799): they shall take H5375 (8799) to themselves their curtains H3407, and all their vessels H3627, and their camels H1581; and they shall cry H7121 (8804) unto them, Fear H4032 [is] on every side H5439.
[30] Flee H5127 (8798), get H5110 (8798) you far off H3966, dwell H3427 (8800) deep H6009 (8689), O ye inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Hazor H2674, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068; for Nebuchadrezzar H5019 king H4428 of Babylon H894 hath taken counsel H6098 H3289 (8804) against you, and hath conceived H2803 (8804) a purpose H4284 against you.
[31] Arise H6965 (8798), get you up H5927 (8798) unto the wealthy H7961 nation H1471, that dwelleth H3427 (8802) without care H983, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068, which have neither gates H1817 nor bars H1280, [which] dwell H7931 (8799) alone H910.
[32] And their camels H1581 shall be a booty H957, and the multitude H1995 of their cattle H4735 a spoil H7998: and I will scatter H2219 (8765) into all winds H7307 them [that are] in the utmost H7112 (8803) corners H6285; and I will bring H935 (8686) their calamity H343 from all sides H5676 thereof, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.
[33] And Hazor H2674 shall be a dwelling H4583 for dragons H8577, [and] a desolation H8077 for H5704 ever H5769: there shall no man H376 abide H3427 (8799) there, nor [any] son H1121 of man H120 dwell H1481 (8799) in it.
[34] The word H1697 of the LORD H3068 that came to Jeremiah H3414 the prophet H5030 against Elam H5867 in the beginning H7225 of the reign H4438 of Zedekiah H6667 king H4428 of Judah H3063, saying H559 (8800),
[35] Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635; Behold, I will break H7665 (8799) the bow H7198 of Elam H5867, the chief H7225 of their might H1369.
[36] And upon Elam H5867 will I bring H935 (8689) the four H702 winds H7307 from the four H702 quarters H7098 of heaven H8064, and will scatter H2219 (8765) them toward all those winds H7307; and there shall be no nation H1471 whither the outcasts H5080 (8737) of Elam H5867 (8675) H5769 shall not come H935 (8799).
[37] For I will cause Elam H5867 to be dismayed H2865 (8689) before H6440 their enemies H341 (8802), and before H6440 them that seek H1245 (8764) their life H5315: and I will bring H935 (8689) evil H7451 upon them, [even] my fierce H2740 anger H639, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068; and I will send H7971 (8765) the sword H2719 after H310 them, till I have consumed H3615 (8763) them:
[38] And I will set H7760 (8804) my throne H3678 in Elam H5867, and will destroy H6 (8689) from thence the king H4428 and the princes H8269, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.
[39] But it shall come to pass in the latter H319 days H3117, [that] I will bring again H7725 (8686) (8675) H7725 (8799) the captivity H7622 (8675) H7622 of Elam H5867, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.

Young’s Literal Translation

Jeremiah 49 (YLT)

[1] Concerning the sons of Ammon: ‘Thus said Jehovah: Sons-hath Israel none? heir-hath he none? Wherefore hath Malcam possessed Gad? And his people in its cities have dwelt?
[2] Therefore, lo, days are coming, An affirmation of Jehovah, And I have sounded unto Rabbah of the sons of Ammon a shout of battle, And it hath been for a heap-a desolation, And her daughters with fire are burnt, And Israel hath succeeded its heirs, Said hath Jehovah.
[3] Howl, Heshbon, for spoiled is Ai, Cry, daughters of Rabbah, gird on sackcloth, Lament, and go to and fro by the hedges, For Malcam into captivity doth go, His priests and his princes together.
[4] What-dost thou boast thyself in valleys? Flowed hath thy valley, O backsliding daughter, Who is trusting in her treasures: Who doth come in unto me?
[5] Lo, I am bringing in upon thee a fear, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah of Hosts, From all round about thee, And ye have been driven out each before it, And there is no gatherer of the wandering.
[6] And after this I turn back the captivity of the sons of Ammon, An affirmation of Jehovah.’
[7] Concerning Edom: ‘Thus said Jehovah of Hosts: Is wisdom no more in Teman? Perished hath counsel from the intelligent? Vanished hath their wisdom?
[8] Flee, turn, go deep to dwell, ye inhabitants of Dedan, For the calamity of Esau I brought in upon him, The time I inspected him.
[9] If gatherers have come in to thee, They do not leave gleanings, If thieves in the night, They have destroyed their sufficiency!
[10] For I-I have made Esau bare, I have uncovered his secret places, And to be hidden he is not able, Spoiled is his seed, and his brethren, And his neighbours, and he is not.
[11] Leave thine orphans-I do keep alive, And thy widows-on Me trust ye,
[12] For thus said Jehovah: They whose judgment is not to drink of the cup, Do certainly drink, And thou art he that is entirely acquitted! Thou art not acquitted, for thou certainly drinkest.
[13] For, by Myself, I have sworn, An affirmation of Jehovah, That for a desolation, for a reproach, For a waste, and for a reviling-is Bozrah, And all her cities are for wastes age-during.
[14] A report I have heard from Jehovah, And an ambassador among nations is sent, Gather yourselves and come in against her, And rise ye for battle.
[15] For, lo, little I have made thee among nations, Despised among men.
[16] Thy terribleness hath lifted thee up, The pride of thy heart, O dweller in clefts of the rock, Holding the high place of the height, For thou makest high as an eagle thy nest, From thence I bring thee down, An affirmation of Jehovah.
[17] And Edom hath been for a desolation, Every passer by her is astonished, And doth hiss because of all her plagues.
[18] As the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, And its neighbours, said Jehovah, No one doth dwell there, Nor sojourn in her doth a son of man.
[19] Lo, as a lion he cometh up, Because of the rising of the Jordan, Unto the enduring habitation, But I cause to rest, I cause him to run from off her, And who is chosen? concerning her I lay a charge, For who is like Me? and who conveneth Me? And who is this shepherd who standeth before Me?
[20] Therefore, hear ye the counsel of Jehovah, That He hath counselled concerning Edom, And His devices that He hath devised Concerning the inhabitants of Teman: Drag them out do not little ones of the flock, Make desolate over them doth he not their habitation?
[21] From the noise of their fall hath the earth shaken, The cry-at the sea of Suph is its voice heard.
[22] Lo, as an eagle he cometh up, and flieth, And he spreadeth his wings over Bozrah, And the heart of the mighty of Edom hath been in that day, As the heart of a distressed woman!’
[23] Concerning Damascus: Ashamed hath been Hamath and Arpad, For an evil report they have heard, They have been melted, in the sea is sorrow, To be quiet it is not able.
[24] Feeble hath been Damascus, She turned to flee, and fear strengthened her, Distress and pangs have seized her, as a travailing woman.
[25] How is it not left-the city of praise, The city of my joy!
[26] Therefore fall do her young men in her broad places, And all the men of war are cut off in that day, An affirmation of Jehovah of Hosts.
[27] And I have kindled a fire against the wall of Damascus, And it consumed palaces of Ben-Hadad!’
[28] Concerning Kedar, and concerning the kingdoms of Hazor, that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon hath smitten: ‘Thus said Jehovah: Arise ye, go ye up unto Kedar, And spoil the sons of the east.
[29] Their tents and their flock they do take, Their curtains, and all their vessels, And their camels, they bear away for themselves, And they called concerning them, Fear is round about.
[30] Flee, bemoan mightily, go deep to dwell, Ye inhabitants of Hazor-an affirmation of Jehovah, For given counsel against you hath Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, Yea, he deviseth against them a device.
[31] Rise ye, go up unto a nation at rest, Dwelling confidently, an affirmation of Jehovah, It hath no two-leaved doors nor bar, Alone they do dwell.
[32] And their camels have been for a prey, And the multitude of their cattle for a spoil, And I have scattered them to every wind, Who cut off the corner of the beard, And from all its passages I bring in their calamity, An affirmation of Jehovah.
[33] And Hazor hath been for a habitation of dragons, A desolation-unto the age, No one doth dwell there, nor sojourn in it doth a son of man!’
[34] That which hath been the word of Jehovah unto Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying:
[35] ‘Thus said Jehovah of Hosts: Lo, I am breaking the bow of Elam, The beginning of their might.
[36] And I have brought in to Elam four winds, From the four ends of the heavens, And have scattered them to all these winds, And there is no nation whither outcasts of Elam come not in.
[37] And I have affrighted Elam before their enemies, And before those seeking their life, And I have brought in against them evil, The heat of Mine anger, An affirmation of Jehovah, And I have sent after them the sword, Till I have consumed them;
[38] And I have set My throne in Elam, And I have destroyed thence King and princes-an affirmation of Jehovah.
[39] And it hath come to pass, in the latter end of the days, I turn back to the captivity of Elam, An affirmation of Jehovah!’
