Punishment for the Philistines

This is what the Lord says: “I will definitely punish the people of Gaza[a] for the many crimes they did. They took an entire nation of people and sent them as slaves to Edom. So I will start a fire at the wall of Gaza that will destroy the high towers in Gaza. And I will destroy the one who sits on the throne in Ashdod. I will destroy the king who holds the scepter in Ashkelon. I will punish the people of Ekron.[b] Then the Philistines who are still left alive will die.” This is what the Lord God said.
