Thus says the Lord:

“For three transgressions of Gaza,
    and for four, I will not revoke the punishment;[a]
because they carried into exile a whole people
    to deliver them up to Edom.
So I will send a fire upon the wall of Gaza,
    and it shall devour her strongholds.
I will cut off the inhabitants from Ashdod,
    and him that holds the scepter from Ash′kelon;
I will turn my hand against Ekron;
    and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish,”
                says the Lord God.
