Jeremiah 49:1-3 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

A Message Concerning Ammon

49 Concerning the Ammonites:[a] Thus says Yahweh,

“Are there no sons for Israel?
    Or is there no heir for him?
Why has Milcom taken possession of Gad,
    and his people dwelled in its towns?
Therefore[b] look, days are coming,” declares[c] Yahweh,
“and I will sound against Rabbah, the Ammonites,[d]
    the alarm of the war,
and it will become as a mound of desolation,
    and its daughters will burn in the fire.
Then Israel will dispossess his dispossessors,” says Yahweh.
“Wail, Heshbon, for Ai is devastated.
    Cry out, O daughters of Rabbah, put on sackcloth.
    Lament and run back and forth among the walls.
For Milcom will go into exile,
    his priests and his officials together.
