Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition
6 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.
7 So I will send a fire upon the wall of Gaza,
and it shall devour her strongholds.
8 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.
- Amos 1:6 Heb cause it to return
