Jeremiah 49

49:1 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?
49:2 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 to them
 that were his heirs, saith the LORD.
49:3 Howl, O Heshbon, for Ai is laid waste: 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.
49:4 Why gloriest thou in the valleys, thy flowing valley, O
 backsliding daughter? that trusted in her treasures, [saying],
 Who shall come to me?
49:5 Behold, I will bring a fear upon thee, saith the Lord GOD
 of hosts, from all those that are about thee; and ye shall be
 driven out every man right forth; and none shall gather up him
 that wandereth.
49:6 And afterward I will bring again the captivity of the
 children of Ammon, saith the LORD.
49:7 Concerning Edom, thus saith the LORD of hosts; [Is] wisdom
 no more in Teman? hath counsel perished from the prudent? hath
 their wisdom vanished?
49:8 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.
49:9 If grape-gatherers come to thee, would they not leave
 [some] gleaning grapes? if thieves by night, they will destroy
 till they have enough.
49:10 But I have made Esau bare, I have uncovered his secret
 places, and he shall not be able to hide himself: his seed is
 laid waste, and his brethren, and his neighbors, and he [is]
49:11 Leave thy fatherless children, I will preserve [them]
 alive; and let thy widows trust in me.
49:12 For thus saith the LORD; Behold, they whose judgment [was]
 not to drink of the cup have assuredly drank; and [art] thou he
 [that] shall altogether go unpunished? thou shalt not go
 unpunished, but thou shalt surely drink [of it].
49:13 For I have sworn by myself, saith the LORD, that Bozrah
 shall become a desolation, a reproach, a waste, and a curse;
 and all her cities shall be perpetual wastes.
49:14 I have heard a rumor from the LORD, and an embassador is
 sent to the heathen, [saying], Assemble, and come against her,
 and rise up to the battle.
49:15 For lo, I will make thee small among the heathen, [and]
 despised among men.
49:16 Thy terribleness hath deceived thee, [and] the pride of
 thy heart, O thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, that
 holdest the hight of the hill: though thou shouldst make thy
 nest as high as the eagle, I will bring thee down from thence,
 saith the LORD.
49:17 Also Edom shall be a desolation: every one that goeth by
 it shall be astonished, and shall hiss at all her plagues.
49:18 As in the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah and the
 neighboring [cities], saith the LORD, no man shall abide there,
 neither shall a son of man dwell in it.
49:19 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?
49:20 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.
49:21 The earth is moved at the noise of their fall, at the cry
 the noise of it was heard in the Red sea.
49:22 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.
49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for
 they have heard evil tidings: they are faint-hearted; [there
 is] sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.
49:24 Damascus hath become feeble, [and] turneth herself to
 flee, and fear hath seized on [her]: anguish and sorrows have
 taken her, as a woman in travail.
49:25 How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy!
49:26 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
49:27 And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it
 shall consume the palaces of Ben-hadad.
49:28 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 lay waste the men of
 the east.
49:29 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 to them, Fear [is] on
 every side.
49:30 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
49:31 Arise, go up to the wealthy nation, that dwelleth without
 care, saith the LORD, which have neither gates nor bars,
 [which] dwell alone.
49:32 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 of it, saith the LORD.
49:33 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.
49:34 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,
49:35 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow
 of Elam, the chief of their might.
49:36 And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four
 quarters of heaven, and will scatter them towards all those
 winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of
 Elam shall not come.
49:37 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:
49:38 And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from
 thence the king and the princes, saith the LORD.
49:39 But it shall come to pass in the latter days, [that] I
 will bring again the captivity of Elam, saith the LORD.
