Jeremiah 47-48New King James Version (NKJV)
Judgment on Philistia
47 The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet against the Philistines, before Pharaoh attacked Gaza.
2 Thus says the Lord:
“Behold, waters rise out of the north,
6 “O you sword of the Lord,
Judgment on Moab
48 Against Moab.
Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel:
“Woe to Nebo!
6 “Flee, save your lives!
9 “Give wings to Moab,
11 “Moab has been at ease from his[e] 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
Thus far is the judgment of Moab.
