14 Therefore shalt thou give shilluchim (parting gifts) to Moreshet-Gat; the batim (houses) of Achziv shall be a deception to the melachim of Yisroel.

15 Yet will I bring HaYoresh (The Heir, the one who takes possession) unto thee, O inhabitant of Mareshah; the kavod Yisroel shall come unto Adullam.

16 Shave your head in mourning for the children who were your delight; make yourselves as bald as the nesher (vulture); for they are gone into the golus from thee.
