Jeremiah 49:34-39

A message about Elam

34 The Lord spoke to Jeremiah the prophet soon after Zedekiah became king of Judah. He spoke about Elam. 35 The great and powerful Lord said,

‘I will destroy the weapons of Elam that make them strong.

36 I will bring against them the winds from every direction.

The wind will push them to the far places of the earth.

Some people from Elam will run to every nation.

37 Their enemies want to kill them.

They will run away from those who attack them.

I am very angry with them and I will cause much trouble to them,’

says the Lord.

‘I will send enemies to run after them with swords

until they are all dead.

38 I will become the ruler of Elam.

And I will kill their king and his officers,’ says the Lord.

39 ‘But at a time that is still future,

I will make Elam a nation again,’ says the Lord.
