For Gaza will be abandoned
and Ashkelon will be a wasteland.
Ashdod will be driven out at noon
and Ekron will be uprooted.
Oy to the inhabitants of the seacoast,
    the nation of Cherethites!
The word of Adonai is against you,
    Canaan, the land of the Philistines,
and I will destroy you
    until there is no inhabitant.
The seacoast will become pastures,
with meadows for shepherds and folds for flocks.

The land by the sea will become pastures
    having wells for shepherds
    and pens for flocks.(F)
