Jeremiah 49:1-3 Modern English Version (MEV)

Judgment on Ammon

49 Concerning the Ammonites:

Thus says the Lord:

Does Israel have no sons?
    Or has he no heirs?
Why then does their king inherit Gad
    and his people dwell in his cities?
Therefore, surely the days are coming,
    says the Lord,
when I will cause an alarm of war
    to be heard in Rabbah of the Ammonites;
and it will be a desolate heap,
    and her towns will be burned with fire.
Then Israel will be heir
    to those who were his heirs,
    says the Lord.
Howl, O Heshbon, for Ai has been devastated!
    Cry out, O daughters of Rabbah,
gird yourselves with sackcloth and lament,
    and run to and fro inside the walls;
for their king shall go into captivity,
    and his priests and his officials together.
