14 Therefore you shall give parting gifts[a]
    to (A)Moresheth-gath;
the houses of (B)Achzib shall be a deceitful thing
    to the kings of Israel.
15 I will again bring (C)a conqueror to you,
    inhabitants of (D)Mareshah;
the glory of Israel
    shall come to (E)Adullam.
16 (F)Make yourselves bald and cut off your hair,
    for the children of your delight;
(G)make yourselves as bald as the eagle,
    for they shall go from you into exile.
