This is what the Lord says:

‘For three sins of Gaza,
    even for four, I will not relent.
Because she took captive whole communities
    and sold them to Edom,
I will send fire on the walls of Gaza
    that will consume her fortresses.
I will destroy the king[a] of Ashdod
    and the one who holds the sceptre in Ashkelon.
I will turn my hand against Ekron,
    till the last of the Philistines are dead,’
says the Sovereign Lord.
