Scabbard - A case or covering for a sword.

Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 47 :6

O thou sword of the Lord - This is a most grand prosopopoeia - a dialogue between the sword of the Lord and the prophet. Nothing can be imagined more sublime.

Put up thyself into thy scabbard, rest, and be still - Shed no more blood, destroy no more lives, erase no more cities, desolate no more countries. Rest: - hast thou not been long enough at this work of judgment? O be still: - let wars and desolations cease for ever.

Barnes' Commentary on Jeremiah 47 :6

Wesley's Commentary on Jeremiah 47 :6

47:6 O thou sword - Perhaps they are the words of the prophet, lamenting the havock which he made among the Philistines by the Chaldeans.
