“So I will send fire upon the wall of Gaza
And it will consume her citadels.
“I will also cut off the inhabitant from (A)Ashdod,
And him who holds the scepter, from (B)Ashkelon;
I will even [a]unleash My [b]power upon Ekron,
And the remnant of the (C)Philistines will perish,”
Says the Lord [c]God.

Thus says the Lord,
“For three transgressions of (D)Tyre and for four
I will not revoke its punishment,
Because they delivered up an entire population to Edom
And did not remember the covenant of [d](E)brotherhood.
