So I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza,
    fire that shall devour its strongholds.
I will cut off the inhabitants from Ashdod,
    and the one who holds the scepter from Ashkelon;
I will turn my hand against Ekron,
    and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish,
says the Lord God.

For three transgressions of Tyre,
    and for four, I will not revoke the punishment;[a]
because they delivered entire communities over to Edom,
    and did not remember the covenant of kinship.
