Jeremiah 46

Pardon the joke in verse 17.
Jeremiah 46 Fn Min Max Syll
אֲשֶׁ֨ר הָיָ֧ה דְבַר־יְהוָ֛ה אֶל־יִרְמְיָ֥הוּ הַנָּבִ֖יא עַל־הַגּוֹיִֽם 1 The word of Yahweh that happened to Jeremiah the prophet concerning the nations. 3c 3g 20
לְמִצְרַ֗יִם עַל־חֵ֨יל פַּרְעֹ֤ה נְכוֹ֙ מֶ֣לֶךְ מִצְרַ֔יִם אֲשֶׁר־הָיָ֥ה עַל־נְהַר־פְּרָ֖ת בְּכַרְכְּמִ֑שׁ
אֲשֶׁ֣ר הִכָּ֗ה נְבֽוּכַדְרֶאצַּר֙ מֶ֣לֶךְ בָּבֶ֔ל בִּשְׁנַת֙ הָֽרְבִיעִ֔ית לִיהוֹיָקִ֥ים בֶּן־יֹאשִׁיָּ֖הוּ מֶ֥לֶךְ יְהוּדָֽה
2 For Egypt, the force of Pharaoh Neko the king of Egypt that was by the river Euphrates in Karkemish,
which Nebukadretsar king of Babel struck in the fourth year of Jehoiachim, child of Josiah, king of Judah.

32
עִרְכ֤וּ מָגֵן֙ וְצִנָּ֔ה וּגְשׁ֖וּ לַמִּלְחָמָֽה 3 Arrange shield and grappling hook, and make overture for war. 3e 4C 13
אִסְר֣וּ הַסּוּסִ֗ים וַֽעֲלוּ֙ הַפָּ֣רָשִׁ֔ים וְהִֽתְיַצְּב֖וּ בְּכ֥וֹבָעִ֑ים
מִרְקוּ֙ הָֽרְמָחִ֔ים לִבְשׁ֖וּ הַסִּרְיֹנֹֽת
4 Hitch the horses, and bring up the cavalry, and station yourselves with helmets.
Furbish the lances, and put on the chain mail.

11
מַדּ֣וּעַ רָאִ֗יתִי הֵ֣מָּה חַתִּים֮ נְסֹגִ֣ים אָחוֹר֒ וְגִבּוֹרֵיהֶ֣ם יֻכַּ֔תּוּ וּמָנ֥וֹס נָ֖סוּ וְלֹ֣א הִפְנ֑וּ
מָג֥וֹר מִסָּבִ֖יב נְאֻם־יְהוָֽה
5 Why do I see them dismayed and repulsed and their valiant beaten, and they have withdrawn and will not face terror all around?
An oracle of Yahweh.
3e 4B 32
9
אַל־יָנ֣וּס הַקַּ֔ל וְאַל־יִמָּלֵ֖ט הַגִּבּ֑וֹר
צָפ֙וֹנָה֙ עַל־יַ֣ד נְהַר־פְּרָ֔ת כָּשְׁל֖וּ וְנָפָֽלוּ
6 Let not the fleet withdraw nor the valiant escape.
Towards the north over the dike of the river Euphrates, they stumbled and fell.
3e 4B 13
15
מִי־זֶ֖ה כַּיְאֹ֣ר יַֽעֲלֶ֑ה
כַּנְּהָר֕וֹת יִֽתְגָּעֲשׁ֖וּ מֵימָֽיו
7 Who is this as the Nile coming up,
as rivers whose waters are shaken?

מִצְרַ֙יִם֙ כַּיְאֹ֣ר יַֽעֲלֶ֔ה וְכַנְּהָר֖וֹת יִתְגֹּ֣עֲשׁוּ מָ֑יִם
וַיֹּ֗אמֶר אַֽעֲלֶה֙ אֲכַסֶּה־אֶ֔רֶץ אֹבִ֥ידָה עִ֖יר וְיֹ֥שְׁבֵי בָֽהּ

and he said, I will go up and will cover a land. I will eliminate a city and those settled in her.

עֲל֤וּ הַסּוּסִים֙ וְהִתְהֹלְל֣וּ הָרֶ֔כֶב וְיֵצְא֖וּ הַגִּבּוֹרִ֑ים

וְֽהַיּ֨וֹם הַה֜וּא לַאדֹנָ֧י יְהוִ֣ה צְבָא֗וֹת י֤וֹם נְקָמָה֙ לְהִנָּקֵ֣ם מִצָּרָ֔יו וְאָכְלָ֥ה חֶ֙רֶב֙ וְשָׂ֣בְעָ֔ה וְרָוְתָ֖ה מִדָּמָ֑ם
כִּ֣י זֶ֠בַח לַאדֹנָ֨י יְהוִ֧ה צְבָא֛וֹת בְּאֶ֥רֶץ צָפ֖וֹן אֶל־נְהַר־פְּרָֽת
10 For this day is for my lord Yahweh of hosts, a day of vengeance to be avenged of his foe, and a sword will devour and will be sated and will be saturated from their blood,
for an offering for my lord Yahweh of hosts in the land of the north by the river Euphrates.
3c 4C 38
21
עֲלִ֤י גִלְעָד֙ וּקְחִ֣י צֳרִ֔י בְּתוּלַ֖ת בַּת־מִצְרָ֑יִם
לַשָּׁוְא֙ הִרְבֵּ֣ית רְפֻא֔וֹת תְּעָלָ֖ה אֵ֥ין לָֽךְ
11 Go up, Gilead, and take balm, O virgin daughter of Egypt.
In vain you have increased medicines. There is nothing to bring up for you.
3e 4C 15
12
שָׁמְע֤וּ גוֹיִם֙ קְלוֹנֵ֔ךְ וְצִוְחָתֵ֖ךְ מָלְאָ֣ה הָאָ֑רֶץ
כִּֽי־גִבּ֤וֹר בְּגִבּוֹר֙ כָּשָׁ֔לוּ יַחְדָּ֖יו נָפְל֥וּ שְׁנֵיהֶֽם
12 Nations have heard your denials, and your complaint has filled the land,
for valiant against valiant stumble. Together they are both fallen.

He does not stand, for Yahweh has evicted him.

הִרְבָּ֖ה כּוֹשֵׁ֑ל
גַּם־נָפַ֞ל אִ֣ישׁ אֶל־רֵעֵ֗הוּ וַיֹּֽאמְרוּ֙ ק֣וּמָה ׀ וְנָשֻׁ֣בָה אֶל־עַמֵּ֗נוּ וְאֶל־אֶ֙רֶץ֙ מֽוֹלַדְתֵּ֔נוּ מִפְּנֵ֖י חֶ֥רֶב הַיּוֹנָֽה
16 He made many stumble,
even to fall, each on his associate, and they said, Arise and let us return to our people, and to the land of our birth, in the face of a suppressing sword.
3e 4B 4
36
קָרְא֖וּ שָׁ֑ם
פַּרְעֹ֤ה מֶֽלֶךְ־מִצְרַ֙יִם֙ שָׁא֔וֹן הֶעֱבִ֖יר הַמּוֹעֵֽד
17 They call there,
Pharaoh the king of Egypt is noise. He has passed the best by date.

חַי־אָ֙נִי֙ נְאֻם־הַמֶּ֔לֶךְ יְהוָ֥ה צְבָא֖וֹת שְׁמ֑וֹ
כִּ֚י כְּתָב֣וֹר בֶּֽהָרִ֔ים וּכְכַרְמֶ֖ל בַּיָּ֥ם יָבֽוֹא
18 I, Living, an oracle of the king, Yahweh of hosts is his name,
for as Tabor is among the mountains and as Carmel is by the sea, so he will come.
3e 4C 14
14
כְּלֵ֤י גוֹלָה֙ עֲשִׂ֣י לָ֔ךְ יוֹשֶׁ֖בֶת בַּת־מִצְרָ֑יִם
כִּֽי־נֹף֙ לְשַׁמָּ֣ה תִֽהְיֶ֔ה וְנִצְּתָ֖ה מֵאֵ֥ין יוֹשֵֽׁב

עֶגְלָ֥ה יְפֵֽה־פִיָּ֖ה מִצְרָ֑יִם
קֶ֥רֶץ מִצָּפ֖וֹן בָּ֥א בָֽא

From the north it comes, it comes.

7
גַּם־שְׂכִרֶ֤יהָ בְקִרְבָּהּ֙ כְּעֶגְלֵ֣י מַרְבֵּ֔ק כִּֽי־גַם־הֵ֧מָּה הִפְנ֛וּ נָ֥סוּ יַחְדָּ֖יו לֹ֣א עָמָ֑דוּ
כִּ֣י י֥וֹם אֵידָ֛ם בָּ֥א עֲלֵיהֶ֖ם עֵ֥ת פְּקֻדָּתָֽם
21 Also her mercenaries are within her, like calves from a stall. For also themselves, they are faced about, withdrawing together, they did not stand.
For the day of their misfortune has come upon them, the time of their visitation.
3c 4C 26
13
קוֹלָ֖הּ כַּנָּחָ֣שׁ יֵלֵ֑ךְ
כִּֽי־בְחַ֣יִל יֵלֵ֔כוּ וּבְקַרְדֻּמּוֹת֙ בָּ֣אוּ לָ֔הּ כְּחֹטְבֵ֖י עֵצִֽים
22 Her voice like a snake will walk, for in force they will walk,
and with wedges will come to her as dressers of trees.
3e 4B 7
19
כָּרְת֤וּ יַעְרָהּ֙ נְאֻם־יְהוָ֔ה כִּ֖י לֹ֣א יֵֽחָקֵ֑ר
כִּ֤י רַבּוּ֙ מֵֽאַרְבֶּ֔ה וְאֵ֥ין לָהֶ֖ם מִסְפָּֽר
23 They will cut off her forest, an oracle of Yahweh, though it is not examined,
for they are multiplied like locusts and there is no count for them.

12
הֹבִ֖ישָׁה בַּת־מִצְרָ֑יִם
נִתְּנָ֖ה בְּיַ֥ד עַם־צָפֽוֹן
24 Put to shame is the daughter of Egypt.
She is given into the hand of the people of the north.
3e 4A 7
7
אָמַר֩ יְהוָ֨ה צְבָא֜וֹת אֱלֹהֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל הִנְנִ֤י פוֹקֵד֙ אֶל־אָמ֣וֹן מִנֹּ֔א וְעַל־פַּרְעֹה֙ וְעַל־מִצְרַ֔יִם וְעַל־אֱלֹהֶ֖יהָ וְעַל־מְלָכֶ֑יהָ
וְעַ֨ל־פַּרְעֹ֔ה וְעַ֥ל הַבֹּטְחִ֖ים בּֽוֹ
25 Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel says, Note me well visiting Amon from No, and against Pharaoh, and against Egypt, and against her God, and against her kings,
and against Pharaoh, and against those who trust in him.
3e 4C 42
10
וּנְתַתִּ֗ים בְּיַד֙ מְבַקְשֵׁ֣י נַפְשָׁ֔ם וּבְיַ֛ד נְבֽוּכַדְרֶאצַּ֥ר מֶֽלֶךְ־בָּבֶ֖ל וּבְיַד־עֲבָדָ֑יו
וְאַחֲרֵי־כֵ֛ן תִּשְׁכֹּ֥ן כִּֽימֵי־קֶ֖דֶם נְאֻם־יְהוָֽה
26 And give them into the hand of those who seek their cadaver, and into the hand of Nebukadretsar, king of Babel, and into the hand of his servants,
and after such, it will be a dwelling-place as in the days of antiquity, an oracle of Yahweh.
3d 4B 26
14
וְ֠אַתָּה אַל־תִּירָ֞א עַבְדִּ֤י יַֽעֲקֹב֙ וְאַל־תֵּחַ֣ת יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל כִּ֠י הִנְנִ֤י מוֹשִֽׁעֲךָ֙ מֵֽרָח֔וֹק וְאֶֽת־זַרְעֲךָ֖ מֵאֶ֣רֶץ שִׁבְיָ֑ם
וְשָׁ֧ב יַעֲק֛וֹב וְשָׁקַ֥ט וְשַׁאֲנַ֖ן וְאֵ֥ין מַחֲרִֽיד
27 ~ But you, do not fear, my servant Jacob, and do not be in disarray, Israel, for note me well saving you from afar, and your seed from the land of their captivity.
So Jacob will return and be quiet, and be without a care, and none will be apprehensive.
3c 4C 38
17
אַ֠תָּה אַל־תִּירָ֞א עַבְדִּ֤י יַֽעֲקֹב֙ נְאֻם־יְהוָ֔ה כִּ֥י אִתְּךָ֖ אָ֑נִי
כִּי֩ אֶעֱשֶׂ֨ה כָלָ֜ה בְּכָֽל־הַגּוֹיִ֣ם ׀ אֲשֶׁ֧ר הִדַּחְתִּ֣יךָ שָׁ֗מָּה וְאֹֽתְךָ֙ לֹא־אֶעֱשֶׂ֣ה כָלָ֔ה וְיִסַּרְתִּ֙יךָ֙ לַמִּשְׁפָּ֔ט וְנַקֵּ֖ה לֹ֥א אֲנַקֶּֽךָּ
28 ~ You are not to fear, O my servant, Jacob, an oracle of Yahweh, for I am with you.
For I will make a consuming end among all the nations where I have banished you, but of you I will not make a consuming end, but I will tutor you for judgment, and will not hold you innocent.
3c 4C 19
43
The final verses are very close to verses in chapter 30. The consuming end is the same stem (כלה) as bride, daughter-in-law, faint, finish. Without God, solitude is eternal.
