Jeremiah

The LORD's message about Philistia.  Jr.47.1-7

1The word of Yahweh that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning the Philistines, before Pharaoh smote Gaza. 2"Thus says Yahweh:
Behold, waters are rising out of the north,
and shall become an overflowing torrent;
they shall overflow the land and all that fills it,
the city and those who dwell in it.
Men shall cry out, and every inhabitant of the land shall wail.
3At the noise of the stamping of the hoofs of his stallions,
at the rushing of his chariots,
at the rumbling of their wheels,
the fathers look not back to their children,
so feeble are their hands,
4because of the day that is coming to destroy
all the Philistines,
to cut off from Tyre and Sidon
every helper that remains.
For Yahweh is destroying the Philistines,
the remnant of the coastland of Caphtor.
5Baldness has come upon Gaza,
Ashkelon has perished.
O remnant of the Anakim,
how long will you gash yourselves?
6Ah, sword of Yahweh!
How long till you are quiet?
Put yourself into your scabbard,
rest and be still!
7How can it be quiet,
when Yahweh has given it a charge?
Against Ashkelon and against the seashore
he has appointed it."

This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
