For (A)Gaza will be abandoned
And Ashkelon a desolation;
(B)Ashdod will be driven out at noon
And (C)Ekron will be uprooted.
Woe to the inhabitants of the seacoast,
The nation of the [a](D)Cherethites!
The word of the Lord is (E)against you,
O (F)Canaan, land of the Philistines;
And I will (G)destroy you
So that there will be (H)no inhabitant.
So the seacoast will be (I)pastures,
With [b]caves for shepherds and folds for flocks.
