A Message About Elam

34 This is the word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam,f early in the reign of Zedekiahg king of Judah:

35 This is what the Lord Almighty says:

“See, I will break the bowh of Elam,

the mainstay of their might.

36 I will bring against Elam the four windsi

from the four quarters of heaven;j

I will scatter them to the four winds,

and there will not be a nation

where Elam’s exiles do not go.

37 I will shatter Elam before their foes,

before those who want to kill them;

I will bring disaster on them,

even my fierce anger,”k

declares the Lord.

“I will pursue them with the swordl

until I have made an end of them.

38 I will set my throne in Elam

and destroy her king and officials,”

declares the Lord.

39 “Yet I will restorem the fortunes of Elam

in days to come,”

declares the Lord.
