14 So you must give ·farewell gifts [a dowry]
    to Moresheth in Gath.
The houses in Aczib [C “deception”] ·will be false help
    to [or have deceived/betrayed] the kings of Israel.
15 I will bring against you people who will ·take [possess; conquer] your land,
    you who live in Mareshah [C sounds like Hebrew for “conqueror”].
The ·glory [or nobles; leaders] of Israel
    will go in to Adullam [C perhaps to hide in its caves].
16 ·Cut off your hair [Shave your head; Make yourself bald; C a sign of mourning or sadness]
    for the children ·you love [in whom you delight].
Make yourself bald like the eagle,
    because your children will be taken away ·to a foreign land [in exile/captivity].
