1 La parole de l'Eternel qui fut adressée à Jérémie, le prophète, sur les Philistins, avant que Pharaon frappât Gaza.

2 Ainsi parle l'Eternel: Voici, des eaux s'élèvent du septentrion, Elles sont comme un torrent qui déborde; Elles inondent le pays et ce qu'il contient, Les villes et leurs habitants. Les hommes poussent des cris, Tous les habitants du pays se lamentent,

3 A cause du retentissement des sabots de ses puissants chevaux, Du bruit de ses chars et du fracas des roues; Les pères ne se tournent pas vers leurs enfants, Tant les mains sont affaiblies,

4 Parce que le jour arrive où seront détruits tous les Philistins, Exterminés tous ceux qui servaient encore d'auxiliaires à Tyr et à Sidon; Car l'Eternel va détruire les Philistins, Les restes de l'île de Caphtor.

5 Gaza est devenue chauve, Askalon est dans le silence, le reste de leur plaine aussi. Jusques à quand te feras-tu des incisions? -

6 Ah! épée de l'Eternel, quand te reposeras-tu? Rentre dans ton fourreau, Arrête, et sois tranquille! -

7 Comment te reposerais-tu? L'Eternel lui donne ses ordres, C'est contre Askalon et la côte de la mer qu'il la dirige.
