on account of the day that is coming
to destroy all the Philistines,
to cut off from Tyre and Sidon
every remaining ally.(A)
Indeed, the Lord is about to destroy the Philistines,
the remnant of the islands of Caphtor.[a](B)
Baldness is coming to Gaza.(C)
Ashkelon will become silent,(D)
a remnant of their valley.
How long will you gash yourself?

Oh, sword of the Lord!(E)
How long will you be restless?
Go back to your sheath;
be still; be silent!
