A prophecy of the desolation of the Philistines, of Tyre, Sidon, Gaza, and Ascalon.
 The word of the Lord that came to Jeremias the prophet against the people of Palestine, before Pharao took Gaza.
Quod factum est verbum Domini ad Jeremiam prophetam contra Palaestinos, antequam percuteret Pharao Gazam.
 Thus saith the Lord: Behold there come up waters out of the north, and they shall be as an overflowing torrent, and they shall cover the land, and all that is therein, the city and the inhabitants thereof: then the men shall cry, and all the inhabitants of the land shall howl,
Haec dicit Dominus : Ecce aquae ascendunt ab aquilone, et erunt quasi torrens inundans, et operient terram et plenitudinem ejus, urbem et habitatores ejus. Clamabunt homines, et ululabunt omnes habitatores terrae,
 At the noise of the marching of arms, and of his soldiers, at the rushing of his chariots, and the multitude of his wheels. The fathers have not looked back to the children, for feebleness of hands,
a strepitu pompae armorum, et bellatorum ejus, a commotione quadrigarum ejus, et multitudine rotarum illius. Non respexerunt patres filios manibus dissolutis,
 Because of the coming of the day, in which all the Philistines shall be laid waste, and Tyre and Sidon shall be destroyed, with all the rest of their helpers. For the Lord hath wasted the Philistines, the remnant of the isle of Cappadocia.
pro adventu diei in quo vastabuntur omnes Philisthiim, et dissipabitur Tyrus et Sidon, cum omnibus reliquis auxiliis suis : depopulatus est enim Dominus Palaestinos, reliquias insulae Cappadociae.
 Baldness is come upon Gaza: Ascalon hath held her peace with the remnant of their valley: how long shalt thou cut thyself?
Venit calvitium super Gazam, conticuit Ascalon, et reliquiae vallis earum : usquequo concideris?
 O thou sword of the Lord, how long wilt thou not be quiet? Go into thy scabbard, rest, and be still.
O mucro Domini, usquequo non quiesces? ingredere in vaginam tuam, refrigerare, et sile.
 How shall it be quiet, when the Lord hath given it a charge against Ascalon, and against the countries thereof by the sea side, and there hath made an appointment for it?
Quomodo quiescet, cum Dominus praeceperit ei adversus Ascalonem, et adversus maritimas ejus regiones, ibique condixerit illi?
