So I will send fire against the city wall of Gaza,
    and it will consume her citadels.
I will cut off the one seated in Ashdod,
    and the one who holds a scepter in Ashkelon.
    I will also turn my hand against Ekron,
    and what is left of the Philistines will perish.
    The Lord God has spoken.

    and they did not remember a treaty of brotherhood.
