Jeremiah Chapter 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 unto them that were his heirs, saith the LORD.
49:3 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
49:4 Wherefore gloriest thou in the valleys, thy flowing valley, O
backsliding daughter? that trusted in her treasures, saying, Who shall
come unto me?
49:5 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.
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? is counsel perished from the prudent? is 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 grapegatherers 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 spoiled, and his
brethren, and his neighbours, and he is not.
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 drunken; 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 the
cities thereof shall be perpetual wastes.
49:14 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.
49:15 For, lo, I will make thee small among the heathen, and despised
49:16 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.
49:17 Also Edom shall be a desolation: every one that goeth by it shall
be astonished, and shall hiss at all the plagues thereof.
49:18 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.
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 thereof 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 fainthearted; there is sorrow on the
sea; it cannot be quiet.
49:24 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
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 hosts.
49:27 And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall
consume the palaces of Benhadad.
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 spoil 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 unto 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 you.
49:31 Arise, get you up unto the wealthy nation, that dwelleth without
care, saith the LORD, which have neither gates nor bars, which dwell
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 thereof,
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 toward 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.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
