Jeremiah 49:1-3 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

A Prophecy against Ammon

This is what the Lord says about the people of Ammon:

Doesn’t Israel have any children? Doesn’t it have any heirs?
    Why, then, has the god Milcom[a] taken over the inheritance
        of Gad’s descendants?
    Why do Milcom’s people live in Gad’s cities?
That is why the days are coming, declares the Lord,
    when I will sound the battle cry against Rabbah,
        where the people of Ammon live.
            It will become a pile of rubble.
            Its villages will be burned down.
Then Israel will take possession of its inheritance, says the Lord.
Cry loudly, Heshbon, because Ai is destroyed.
Cry, people of Rabbah, put on your sackcloth, and mourn.
    Run back and forth between the walls.
        Milcom will be taken away into captivity
            with its priests and officials.
