New International Version - UK
4 Gaza will be abandoned
and Ashkelon left in ruins.
At midday Ashdod will be emptied
and Ekron uprooted.
5 Woe to you who live by the sea,
you Kerethite people;
the word of the Lord is against you,
Canaan, land of the Philistines.
He says, ‘I will destroy you,
and none will be left.’
6 The land by the sea will become pastures
having wells for shepherds
and sheepfolds for flocks.
