Prophecies concerning foreign nations
46:1 The Dvar ADONAI (יהוה) which came to Yirmeyahu ha Navi against the Goyim;
46:2 Against Mitzrayim, against the army of Parohnecho melekh Mitzrayim, which was by the river Euphrates in Carchemish, which Nevukadnetztzar melekh Bavel smote in the fourth year of Yehoyakim Ben Yoshiyahu melekh Yehudah.
46:3 Order you the buckler and shield, and draw near to battle.
46:4 Harness the horses; and get up, you horsemen, and stand forth with [your] helmets; furbish the spears, [and] put on the brigandines.
46:5 Wherefore have I seen them dismayed [and] turned away back? and their mighty ones are beaten down, and are fled apace, and look not back: [for] fear [was] round about, declares ADONAI (יהוה).
46:6 Let not the swift flee away, nor the mighty man escape; they shall stumble, and fall toward the north by the river Euphrates.
46:7 Who [is] this [that] comes up as a flood, whose waters are moved as the rivers?
46:8 Mitzrayim rises up like a flood, and [his] waters are moved like the rivers; and he said, I will go up, [and] will cover the earth; I will destroy the city and the inhabitants thereof.
46:9 Come up, you horses; and rage, you chariots; and let the mighty men come forth; the Ethiopians and the Libyans, that handle the shield; and the Lydians, that handle [and] bend the bow.
46:10 For this [is] the day of Adon ADONAI (יהוה) Tza'vot, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for Adon ADONAI (יהוה) Tza'vot has a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates.
46:11 Go up into Gil'ad, and take balm, O virgin, the Bat Mitzrayim: in vain shall you use many medicines; [for] you shall not be cured.
46:12 The nations have heard of your shame, and your cry has filled the land: for the mighty man has stumbled against the mighty, [and] they are fallen both together.
46:13 The Dvar that ADONAI (יהוה) spoke to Yirmeyahu ha Navi, how Nevukadnetztzar melekh Bavel should come [and] smite ha Eretz Mitzrayim.
46:14 Declare you in Mitzrayim, and publish in Migdol, and publish in Noph and in Tahpanhes: say you, Stand fast, and prepare you; for the sword shall devour round about you.
46:15 Why are your valiant [men] swept away? they stood not, because ADONAI (יהוה) did drive them.
46:16 He made many to fall, yea, one fell upon another: and they said, Arise, and let us go again to our own people, and to ha Eretz our nativity, from the oppressing sword.
46:17 They did cry there, Paroh melekh Mitzrayim [is but] a noise; he has passed the time appointed.
46:18 [As] I live, said the melekh, whose name [is] ADONAI (יהוה) Tza'vot, Surely as Tabor [is] among the mountains, and as Carmel by the sea, [so] shall he come.
46:19 O you daughter dwelling in Mitzrayim, furnish thyself to go into captivity: for Noph shall be waste and desolate without an inhabitant.
46:20 Mitzrayim [is like] a very fair heifer, [but] destruction comes; it comes out of the north.
46:21 Also her hired men [are] in the midst of her like fatted bullocks; for they also are turned back, [and] are fled away together: they did not stand, because the day of their calamity was come upon them, [and] the time of their visitation.
46:22 The voice thereof shall go like a serpent; for they shall march with an army, and come against her with axes, as hewers of wood.
46:23 They shall cut down her forest, declares ADONAI (יהוה), though it cannot be searched; because they are more than the grasshoppers, and [are] innumerable.
46:24 The Bat Mitzrayim shall be confounded; she shall be delivered into the hand of the people of the north.
46:25 ADONAI (יהוה) Tza'vot, the Elohim (אלהים) of Yisra'el, said; Hinei, I will punish the multitude of No, and Paroh, and Mitzrayim, with their gods, and their kings; even Paroh, and [all] them that trust in him:
46:26 And I will deliver them into the hand of those that seek their lives, and into the hand of Nevukadnetztzar melekh Bavel, and into the hand of his servants: and afterward it shall be inhabited, as in the days of old, declares ADONAI (יהוה).
46:27But fear not you, O My eved Ya'akov (יעקב), and be not dismayed, O Yisra'el: for, Hinei, I will save you from afar off, and your seed from ha Eretz their captivity; and Ya'akov (יעקוב) shall return, and be in rest and at ease, and none shall make [him] afraid.
46:28 Fear you not, O Ya'akov My eved, declares ADONAI (יהוה): for I [am] with you; for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven you: but I will not make a full end of you, but correct you in measure; yet will I not leave you wholly unpunished.
