The Lord says:

I will not relent from punishing Gaza(A)
for three crimes, even four,
because they exiled a whole community,
handing them over to Edom.
Therefore, I will send fire against the walls of Gaza,
and it will consume its citadels.
I will cut off the ruler from Ashdod,(B)
and the one who wields the scepter from Ashkelon.(C)
I will also turn my hand against Ekron,
and the remainder of the Philistines(D) will perish.
The Lord God has spoken.

Ashkelon will see it and be afraid;
Gaza too, and will writhe in great pain,
as will Ekron, for her hope will fail.
There will cease to be a king in Gaza,
and Ashkelon will become uninhabited.
A mongrel people will live in Ashdod,
and I will destroy the pride of the Philistines.(A)
I will remove the blood from their mouths
and the abhorrent things(B)
from between their teeth.
Then they too will become a remnant for our God;
they will become like a clan in Judah
and Ekron like the Jebusites.(C)
