024:049:001
Concerning the Ammonites,
thus saith the LORD;
Hath Israel no sons?
hath he no heir?
why then doth their king inherit Gad,
and his people dwell in his cities?


024:049:002
Therefore,
behold,
the days come,
saith the LORD,
that I will cause an alarm of war to be heard in Rabbah of the Ammonites;
and it shall be a desolate heap,
and her daughters shall be burned with fire:
then shall Israel be heir unto them that were his heirs,
saith the LORD.


024:049:003
Howl,
O Heshbon,
for Ai is spoiled:
cry,
ye daughters of Rabbah,
gird you with sackcloth;
lament,
and run to and fro by the hedges;
for their king shall go into captivity,
and his priests and his princes together.


024:049:004
Wherefore gloriest thou in the valleys,
thy flowing valley,
O backsliding daughter?
that trusted in her treasures,
saying,
Who shall come unto me?


024:049:005
Behold,
I will bring a fear upon thee,
saith the Lord GOD of hosts,
from all those that be about thee;
and ye shall be driven out every man right forth;
and none shall gather up him that wandereth.


024:049:006
And afterward I will bring again the captivity of the children of Ammon,
saith the LORD.


024:049:007
Concerning Edom,
thus saith the LORD of hosts;
Is wisdom no more in Teman?
is counsel perished from the prudent?
is their wisdom vanished?


024:049:008
Flee ye,
turn back,
dwell deep,
O inhabitants of Dedan;
for I will bring the calamity of Esau upon him,
the time that I will visit him.


024:049:009
If grapegatherers come to thee,
would they not leave some gleaning grapes?
if thieves by night,
they will destroy till they have enough.


024:049:010
But I have made Esau bare,
I have uncovered his secret places,
and he shall not be able to hide himself:
his seed is spoiled,
and his brethren,
and his neighbours,
and he is not.


024:049:011
Leave thy fatherless children,
I will preserve them alive;
and let thy widows trust in me.


024:049:012
For thus saith the LORD;
Behold,
they whose judgment was not to drink of the cup have assuredly drunken;
and art thou he that shall altogether go unpunished?
thou shalt not go unpunished,
but thou shalt surely drink of it.


024:049:013
For I have sworn by myself,
saith the LORD,
that Bozrah shall become a desolation,
a reproach,
a waste,
and a curse;
and all the cities thereof shall be perpetual wastes.


024:049:014
I have heard a rumour from the LORD,
and an ambassador is sent unto the heathen,
saying,
Gather ye together,
and come against her,
and rise up to the battle.


024:049:015
For,
lo,
I will make thee small among the heathen,
and despised among men.


024:049:016
Thy terribleness hath deceived thee,
and the pride of thine heart,
O thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock,
that holdest the height of the hill:
though thou shouldest make thy nest as high as the eagle,
I will bring thee down from thence,
saith the LORD.


024:049:017
Also Edom shall be a desolation:
every one that goeth by it shall be astonished,
and shall hiss at all the plagues thereof.


024:049:018
As in the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof,
saith the LORD,
no man shall abide there,
neither shall a son of man dwell in it.


024:049:019
Behold,
he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan against the habitation of the strong:
but I will suddenly make him run away from her:
and who is a chosen man,
that I may appoint over her?
for who is like me?
and who will appoint me the time?
and who is that shepherd that will stand before me?


024:049:020
Therefore hear the counsel of the LORD,
that he hath taken against Edom;
and his purposes,
that he hath purposed against the inhabitants of Teman:
Surely the least of the flock shall draw them out:
surely he shall make their habitations desolate with them.


024:049:021
The earth is moved at the noise of their fall,
at the cry the noise thereof was heard in the Red sea.


024:049:022
Behold,
he shall come up and fly as the eagle,
and spread his wings over Bozrah:
and at that day shall the heart of the mighty men of Edom be as the heart of a woman in her pangs.


024:049:023
Concerning Damascus.
Hamath is confounded,
and Arpad:
for they have heard evil tidings:
they are fainthearted;
there is sorrow on the sea;
it cannot be quiet.


024:049:024
Damascus is waxed feeble,
and turneth herself to flee,
and fear hath seized on her:
anguish and sorrows have taken her,
as a woman in travail.


024:049:025
How is the city of praise not left,
the city of my joy!


024:049:026
Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets,
and all the men of war shall be cut off in that day,
saith the LORD of hosts.


024:049:027
And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus,
and it shall consume the palaces of Benhadad.


024:049:028
Concerning Kedar,
and concerning the kingdoms of Hazor,
which Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon shall smite,
thus saith the LORD;
Arise ye,
go up to Kedar,
and spoil the men of the east.


024:049:029
Their tents and their flocks shall they take away:
they shall take to themselves their curtains,
and all their vessels,
and their camels;
and they shall cry unto them,
Fear is on every side.


024:049:030
Flee,
get you far off,
dwell deep,
O ye inhabitants of Hazor,
saith the LORD;
for Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon hath taken counsel against you,
and hath conceived a purpose against you.


024:049:031
Arise,
get you up unto the wealthy nation,
that dwelleth without care,
saith the LORD,
which have neither gates nor bars,
which dwell alone.


024:049:032
And their camels shall be a booty,
and the multitude of their cattle a spoil:
and I will scatter into all winds them that are in the utmost corners;
and I will bring their calamity from all sides thereof,
saith the LORD.


024:049:033
And Hazor shall be a dwelling for dragons,
and a desolation for ever:
there shall no man abide there,
nor any son of man dwell in it.


024:049:034
The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah,
saying,


024:049:035
Thus saith the LORD of hosts;
Behold,
I will break the bow of Elam,
the chief of their might.


024:049:036
And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven,
and will scatter them toward all those winds;
and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.


024:049:037
For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies,
and before them that seek their life:
and I will bring evil upon them,
even my fierce anger,
saith the LORD;
and I will send the sword after them,
till I have consumed them:


024:049:038
And I will set my throne in Elam,
and will destroy from thence the king and the princes,
saith the LORD.


024:049:039
But it shall come to pass in the latter days,
that I will bring again the captivity of Elam,
saith the LORD.
