The time has come to destroy all the Philistines,
    to cut off from Tyre and Sidon any Philistine
        who might have escaped to get help.
The Lord will destroy the Philistines
    and anyone who is left from the island of Crete.
Gaza will shave its head in mourning.
Ashkelon will be destroyed.
How long will you cut yourselves, you people left on the plains?
You cry out, “Sword of the Lord,
    how long will you keep on fighting?
        Go back into your scabbard.
            Stay there and rest!”
