Judgment on Israel’s Neighbors
(Jeremiah 12:14–17)

1These are the sermons, that were shewed vnto Amos (which was one of the shepherdes at Thecua) vpon Israel, in the tyme of Osias kynge of Iuda, & in the tyme of Ieroboa ye sonne of Ioas kynge of Israel, two yeare before ye earthquake

2And he sayde: The LORDE shal roare out off Sion, & shewe his voyce fro Ierusale: so that ye pastures of the shepherdes shal be in a miserable case, & ye toppe of Charmel dryed vp.

3Thus sayeth the LORDE: for thre & foure wickednesses of Damascus, I will not spare her: because they haue throshed Galaad wt yro flales:

4But I wil sende a fyre in to ye house of Hazael, the same shal consume the palaces of Benadab.

5Thus wil I breake the barres off Damascus, & rote out the inhabiter fro the felde of Auen, and him yt holdeth the scepter, out of ye pleasunt house: so yt the people shalbe dryuen out of fayre Siria, sayeth the LORDE.

6Thus saieth the LORDE: For thre & foure wickednesses of Gaza, I wil not spare her: because they make the presoners yet more captyue, & haue dryuen the in to the lode of Edom.

7Therfore wil I sende a fyre in to ye walles of Gaza, which shal deuoure hir houses.

8I wil rote out the yt dwell at Asdod & him yt holdeth the scepter of Ascalon, and stretch out myne honde ouer Accaron, that the remnaunt of the Philistines shal perish saieth the LORDE.

9Thus sayeth the LORDE: For thre and foure wickednesses off the cite off Tyre, I will not spare her: because they haue increased ye captiuyte of the Edomites, and haue not remembred the brotherly couenaunt.

10Therfore will I sende a fyre into the walles off Tyre, that shal consume hir pallaces.

11Thus sayeth the LORDE: For thre and foure wickednesses of Edom I wil not spare him, because he persecuted his brother with the swerde, destroyed his mothers wombe, bare hatred very longe, and so kepte indignacion allwaye by him.

12Therfore will I sende a fyre in to Thema, which shal deuoure the pallaces of Bosra.

13Thus sayeth the LORDE: For thre ad foure wickednesses of the children off Ammon, I will not spare them: because they rypte vp the wome greate with childe in Galaad, to make the borders of their londes the wyder.

14Therfore I wil kyndle a fyre in the walles of Rabbath, that shall consume hir palaces: with a greate crie, in the daye of batel, in tempest and in the daye off storme:

15so that their kynge shal go in to captiuyte, he and his prices together, sayeth the LORDE.
