Jeremiah 47:1-7 (JDV)

Jeremiah 47:1 This is the word of Yahveh that was to Jeremiah the prophet about the Philistines before Pharaoh defeated Gaza.
Jeremiah 47:2 This is what Yahveh says: Look, water is rising from the north and becoming an overflowing wadi. It will overflow the land and everything in it, the cities and their inhabitants. The people will cry out, and everyone staying of the land will wail.
Jeremiah 47:3 At the sound of the stomping hooves of his stallions, the rumbling of his chariots, and the clatter of their wheels, fathers will not turn back for their sons. They will be utterly helpless
Jeremiah 47:4 on the day that is coming to destroy all the Philistines, to cut off from Tyre and Sidon every remaining ally. Indeed, Yahveh is about to destroy the Philistines, the remainder of the coastland of Caphtor.
Jeremiah 47:5 Baldness is coming to Gaza; Ashkelon will become silent, O remainder of their valley, how long will you gash yourself?
Jeremiah 47:6 Tragedy, sword of Yahveh! How long will you be restless? Go back to your sheath; be still and silent!
Jeremiah 47:7 How can it rest when Yahveh has given it a command? He has assigned it against Ashkelon and the shore of the sea.

sword of Yahveh!

Jeremiah had just declared that Egypt would not be able to withstand the attacks of Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon. Now he says the same thing about the Philistines. Mighty Babylon is not conquering these nations because of its own power. It is being wielded by God himself. Babylon is the sword of Yahveh!

Lord, thank you that there is no power on earth that is not empowered by You.
