Jeremiah 49:28 - 49:33

Word Against Kedar and Hazor

28 Concerning Kedar and the kingdoms of Hazor, which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon struck down. Thus says Yahweh,
“Arise, go up to Kedar
And destroy the men of the east.
They will take away their tents and their flocks;
They will carry off for themselves
Their tent curtains, all their goods, and their camels,
And they will call out to one another, ‘Terror on every side!’
Run away, flee earnestly! Inhabit the depths,
O inhabitants of Hazor,” declares Yahweh;
“For Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon has taken counsel against you
And purposed a purpose against you.
Arise, go up against a nation which is at ease,
Which inhabits its land securely,” declares Yahweh.
“It has no gates or bars;
They dwell alone.
Their camels will become plunder,
And their many cattle for spoil,
And I will scatter to all the winds those who cut the corners of their hair;
And I will bring their disaster from every side,” declares Yahweh.
“Hazor will become a haunt of jackals,
A desolation forever;
No one will inhabit there,
Nor will a son of man sojourn in it.”
