2 Kings 24:1-4 New King James Version (NKJV)
Judah Overrun by Enemies
24 In his days Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his vassal for three years. Then he turned and rebelled against him. 2 And the Lord sent against him raiding [a]bands of Chaldeans, bands of Syrians, bands of Moabites, and bands of the people of Ammon; He sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the Lord which He had spoken by His servants the prophets. 3 Surely at the commandment of the Lord this came upon Judah, to remove them from His sight because of the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he had done, 4 and also because of the innocent blood that he had shed; for he had filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, which the Lord would not pardon.
Jeremiah 48 New King James Version (NKJV)
Judgment on Moab
48 Against Moab.
Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel:
“Woe to Nebo!
4 “Moab is destroyed;
6 “Flee, save your lives!
9 “Give wings to Moab,
11 “Moab has been at ease from [e]his youth;
12 “Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord,
14 “How can you say, ‘We are mighty
16 “The calamity of Moab is near at hand,
18 “O daughter inhabiting Dibon,
21 “And judgment has come on the plain country:
26 “Make him drunk,
29 “We have heard the pride of Moab
30 “I know his wrath,” says the Lord,
34 “From the cry of Heshbon to Elealeh and to Jahaz
35 “Moreover,” says the Lord,
37 “For every head shall be bald, and every beard clipped;
40 For thus says the Lord:
“Behold, one shall fly like an eagle,
45 “Those who fled stood under the shadow of Heshbon
47 “Yet I will bring back the captives of Moab
Thus far is the judgment of Moab.
Jeremiah 49:1-33 New King James Version (NKJV)
Judgment on Ammon
49 Against the Ammonites.
Thus says the Lord:
“Has Israel no sons?
3 “Wail, O Heshbon, for Ai is plundered!
Judgment on Edom
7 Against Edom.
Thus says the Lord of hosts:
“Is wisdom no more in Teman?
12 For thus says the Lord: “Behold, those whose judgment was not to drink of the cup have assuredly drunk. And are you the one who will altogether go unpunished? You shall not go unpunished, but you shall surely drink of it. 13 For I have sworn by Myself,” says the Lord, “that Bozrah shall become a desolation, a reproach, a [e]waste, and a curse. And all its cities shall be perpetual [f]wastes.”
14 I have heard a message from the Lord,
15 “For indeed, I will make you small among nations,
17 “Edom also shall be an astonishment;
19 “Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the [g]floodplain of the Jordan
20 Therefore hear the counsel of the Lord that He has taken against Edom,
Judgment on Damascus
23 Against Damascus.
“Hamath and Arpad are shamed,
Judgment on Kedar and Hazor
28 Against Kedar and against the kingdoms of Hazor, which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon shall strike.
Thus says the Lord:
“Arise, go up to Kedar,
30 “Flee, get far away! Dwell in the depths,
31 “Arise, go up to the wealthy nation that dwells securely,” says the Lord,
Jeremiah 22:18-23 New King James Version (NKJV)

“They shall not lament for him,
20 “Go up to Lebanon, and cry out,
2 Kings 24:5-6 New King James Version (NKJV)
5 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoiakim, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? 6 So Jehoiakim rested with his fathers. Then Jehoiachin his son reigned in his place.
