14 So you must give goodbye gifts
    to Moresheth[a] in Gath.
The houses in Aczib[b] will trick
    the kings of Israel.
15 You people who live in Mareshah,[c]
    I will bring someone against you who will take the things you own.
The Glory of Israel
    will come into Adullam.[d]
16 So cut off your hair, make yourself bald,[e]
    because you will cry for the children you love.
Make yourself bald like an eagle[f] and show your sadness,
    because your children will be taken away from you.
