Because of the day that is coming
    to destroy all the Philistines,
to cut off from Tyre and from Sidon
    every survivor who could help,
for Yahweh is destroying the Philistines,
    the remnant of the coastland of Caphtor.
Baldness has come upon Gaza,
    Ashkelon is destroyed.
O remnant of their valley,
    how long[a] will you cut yourself with a blade?
Ah, sword of Yahweh,
    how long[b] will you not be quiet?
Gather to your sheath,
    keep quiet and stand still.
