1 Ad filios Ammon. Haec dicit Dominus: "Numquid filii non sunt Israel, aut heres non est ei? Cur igitur hereditate possedit Melchom Gad, et populus eius in urbibus eius habitavit?
2 Ideo ecce dies veniunt, dicit Dominus, et auditum faciam super Rabba filiorum Ammon fremitum proelii; et erit in tumulum dissipata, filiaeque eius igni succendentur, et possidebit Israel possessores suos, ait Dominus.
3 Ulula, Hesebon, quoniam vastata es, ut sis in acervum lapidum; clamate, filiae Rabba, accingite vos ciliciis, plangite et circuite per muros, quoniam Melchom in transmigrationem ducetur, sacerdotes eius et principes eius simul.
4 Quid gloriaris in vallibus? Copiose fluxit vallis tua, filia rebellis, quae confidebas in thesauris tuis et dicebas: "Quis veniet ad me?".
5 Ecce ego inducam super te terrorem, ait Dominus, Deus exercituum, ab omnibus, qui sunt in circuitu tuo; et dispergemini singuli in viam suam, nec erit qui congreget fugientes.
6 Et post haec convertam sortem filiorum Ammon", ait Dominus.
7 Ad Edom. Haec dicit Dominus exercituum: "Numquid non ultra est sapientia in Theman? Periit consilium a prudentibus, inutilis facta est sapientia eorum.
8 Fugite, terga vertite, descendite in voraginem, habitatores Dedan, quoniam perditionem Esau adduxi super eum, tempore quo visitavi eum.
9 Si vindemiatores veniunt super te, non relinquent racemum; si fures in nocte, diripiunt, quod placet sibi.
10 Ego vero discooperui Esau, revelavi abscondita eius, et celari non poterit; vastatum est semen eius et fratres eius et vicini eius, et non erit.
11 Relinque pupillos tuos, ego faciam eos vivere; et viduae tuae in me sperabunt.
12 Quia haec dicit Dominus: Ecce quibus non erat iudicium, ut biberent calicem, bibentes bibent; et tu quasi innocens relinqueris? Non eris innocens, sed bibens bibes.
13 Quia per memetipsum iuravi, dicit Dominus, quod in solitudinem et in opprobrium et in desertum et in maledictionem erit Bosra; et omnes civitates eius erunt in solitudines sempiternas".
14 Auditum audivi a Domino, et legatus ad gentes missus est: "Congregamini et venite contra eam et consurgite in proelium".
15 "Ecce enim parvulum dedi te in gentibus, contemptibilem inter homines.
16 Arrogantia tua decepit te, et superbia cordis tui, qui habitas in cavernis petrae et tenes altitudinem collis; cum exaltaveris quasi aquila nidum tuum, inde detraham te, dicit Dominus.
17 Et erit Edom in desolationem: omnis, qui transibit per eam, stupebit et sibilabit super omnes plagas eius.
18 Sicut subversa est Sodoma et Gomorra et vicinae eius, ait Dominus, non habitabit ibi vir, et non peregrinabitur in ea filius hominis.
19 Ecce quasi leo ascendet de silva condensa Iordanis ad prata semper virentia, quia subito currere faciam eos ex illa; et, qui erit electus, illum praeponam ei. Quis enim similis mei? Et quis vocabit me in iudicium? Et quis est iste pastor, qui resistat vultui meo?
20 Propterea audite consilium Domini, quod iniit de Edom, et cogitationes eius, quas cogitavit de habitatoribus Theman: Certe abstrahent parvulos gregis, certe desolabuntur super eos pascua eorum.
21 A voce ruinae eorum commota est terra, clamor in mari Rubro auditus est ocis eius.
22 Ecce quasi aquila ascendet et volabit et expandet alas suas super Bosram; et erit cor fortium Edom in die illa quasi cor mulieris parturientis".
23 Ad Damascum." Confusa est Emath et Arphad, quia auditum pessimum audierunt; turbati sunt in mari sollicitudinis, quod quiescere non potuit.
24 Dissoluta est Damascus, versa in fugam; tremor apprehendit eam, angustia et dolores tenuerunt eam quasi parturientem.
25 Quomodo non erit derelicta civitas laudabilis, urbs laetitiae?
26 Ideo cadent iuvenes eius in plateis eius, et omnes viri proelii conticescent in die illa, ait Dominus exercituum.
27 Et succendam ignem in muro Damasci, et devorabit moenia Benadad".
28 Ad Cedar et ad regna Asor, quae percussit Nabuchodonosor rex Babylonis. Haec dicit Dominus: "Surgite, ascendite ad Cedar et vastate filios orientis.
29 Tabernacula eorum et greges eorum capient; tentoria eorum et omnia vasa eorum et camelos eorum tollent sibi; et vocabunt super eos formidinem in circuitu.
30 Fugite, abite vehementer, in voraginibus sedete, qui habitatis Asor, ait Dominus; iniit enim contra vos Nabuchodonosor rex Babylonis consilium et cogitavit adversum vos cogitationes.
31 Consurgite, et ascendite ad gentem quietam et habitantem confidenter, ait Dominus; non ostia nec vectes eis: soli habitant.
32 Et erunt cameli eorum in direptionem, et multitudo iumentorum in praedam; et dispergam eos in omnem ventum, qui sunt attonsi in comam, et ex omni confinio eorum adducam interitum super eos, ait Dominus.
33 Et erit Asor in habitaculum thoum, deserta usque in aeternum; non manebit ibi vir, nec peregrinabitur in ea filius hominis".
34 Quod factum est verbum Domini ad Ieremiam prophetam super Elam, in principio regni Sedeciae regis Iudae, dicens:
35 "Haec dicit Dominus exercituum: Ecce ego confringam arcum Elam, summam fortitudinem eorum;
36 et inducam super Elam quattuor ventos a quattuor plagis caeli, et ventilabo eos in omnes ventos istos, et non erit gens, ad quam non perveniant profugi Elam.
37 Et pavere faciam Elam coram inimicis suis et in conspectu quaerentium animam eorum; et adducam super eos malum iram furoris mei, dicit Dominus, et mittam post eos gladium, donec consumam eos.
38 Et ponam solium meum in Elam et perdam inde regem et principes, ait Dominus.
39 In novissimis autem diebus convertam sortem Elam", dicit Dominus.
King James Version
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?
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.
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 together.
4 Wherefore gloriest thou in the valleys, thy flowing valley, O backsliding daughter? that trusted in her treasures, saying, Who shall come unto me?
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.
6 And afterward I will bring again the captivity of the children of Ammon, saith the LORD.
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?
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.
9 If grapegatherers come to thee, would they not leave some gleaning grapes? if thieves by night, they will destroy till they have enough.
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.
11 Leave thy fatherless children, I will preserve them alive; and let thy widows trust in me.
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.
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.
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.
15 For, lo, I will make thee small among the heathen, and despised among men.
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.
17 Also Edom shall be a desolation: every one that goeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss at all the plagues thereof.
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.
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?
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.
21 The earth is moved at the noise of their fall, at the cry the noise thereof was heard in the Red sea.
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.
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.
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 travail.
25 How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy!
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.
27 And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces of Ben-hadad.
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.
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.
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.
31 Arise, get you up unto the wealthy nation, that dwelleth without care, saith the LORD, which have neither gates nor bars, which dwell alone.
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.
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.
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,
35 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.
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.
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:
38 And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the LORD.
39 ¶ But it shall come to pass in the latter days, that I will bring again the captivity of Elam, saith the LORD.
