A Message About Philistia

Gaza will be deserted.
    Ashkelon will be destroyed.
Ashdod will be emptied out at noon.
    Ekron will be pulled up by its roots.
How terrible it will be for you Kerethites
    who live by the Mediterranean Sea!
Philistia, the Lord has spoken against you.
    What happened to Canaan will happen to you.

The Lord says, “I will destroy you.
    No one will be left.”

The land by the sea will become grasslands.
    It will have wells for shepherds and pens for flocks.
