34 The word of YHWH that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying
Jer30:6 THE PROPHECIES OF JEREMIAS AGAINST THE NATIONS OF ÆLAM.
34 Concerning Elam, the word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he might prophesy concerning Elam, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying,
35 Thus saith YHWH of hosts: Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.
35 Thus saith the Lord, The bow of Ælam is broken, even the chief of their power.
35 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, and the summit of their strength.
36 And I will bring against Elam the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the dispersed of Elam shall not come.
37 And I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life; and I will bring evil upon them, even My fierce anger, saith YHWH; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them;
37 And I will put them in fear before their enemies that seek their life; and I will bring evils upon them according to my great anger; and I will send forth my sword after them, until I have utterly destroyed them.
38 And I will set My throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence king and princes, saith YHWH.
38 I will set my throne in Elam, and I will destroy from thence the kings and the princes, says the LORD.
39 But it shall come to pass in the end of days, that I will bring back the captivity of Elam, saith YHWH.
39 But in the last days, I will cause the captives of Elam to return, says the Lord.”
