A Prophecy Against Philistia

15 “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: ‘Because the Philistines(I) acted in vengeance and took revenge with malice(J) in their hearts, and with ancient hostility sought to destroy Judah, 16 therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am about to stretch out my hand against the Philistines,(K) and I will wipe out the Kerethites(L) and destroy those remaining along the coast.(M) 17 I will carry out great vengeance(N) on them and punish(O) them in my wrath. Then they will know that I am the Lord,(P) when I take vengeance on them.(Q)’”
