[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]

     Explanation: In Jeremiah 47, the LORD sent a message of judgment against the Philistines and their chief cities (Gaza, and Ashkelon) and their trading partners, such as Tyre (depicted above). The prophecy came before Pharaoh smote Gaza, which may refer to one or both of the times when Pharaoh Necho defeated Gaza in 609 and 601 B.C., as reported by Herodotus (1).
     After Pharaoh, another conqueror (probably Nebuchadrezzar), was coming from the north who would overflow the land like a flood bringing distress and feebleness (2-3).
     The chief cities of the Philistines (Gaza and Ashkelon) and their chief trading partners (Tyrus and Zidon) would be smitten together with Caphtor, which may refer to Cappadocia, Crete, Cyprus, or to a region within Philistia. In any case, the sword of the Lord would not be quiet until it had finished judging (4-6).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

     1 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet against the Philistines, before that Pharaoh smote [this] Gaza.

2 Thus saith the LORD;
waters rise up out of the north,
and shall be an overflowing flood,
and shall overflow the land,
and all that is therein;
the city,
and them that dwell therein:
then the men shall cry,
and all the inhabitants of the land shall howl.
3 At the noise
of the stamping of the hoofs of his strong horses,
at the rushing of his chariots,
and at the rumbling of his wheels,
the fathers shall not look back to their children for feebleness of hands;
4 Because of the day that cometh to spoil [this] all the Philistines,
and to cut off from Tyrus and Zidon every helper that remaineth:
for the LORD will spoil [this] the Philistines,
the remnant of the country of Caphtor.
5 Baldness is come upon Gaza;
Ashkelon is cut off with the remnant of their valley:
how long [until when] wilt thou cut thyself?
6 O thou sword of the LORD,
how long [until where] will it be ere thou be quiet?
put up thyself into thy scabbard,
and be still.
7 How can it be quiet,
seeing the LORD hath given it a charge
against Ashkelon,
and against the sea shore?
there hath he appointed it.
