International Children’s Bible
14 So you must give farewell gifts
to Moresheth[a] in Gath.
The houses in Aczib[b] will be false help
to the kings of Israel.
15 I will bring an enemy against you
who live in Mareshah.[c]
He will take what you own.
The leaders Israel brags about
will hide in the cave at Adullam.
16 Cut off your hair to show you are sad.
Cry for the children you love.
Make yourself bald like the eagle,
because your children will be forced to live in a foreign land.
