For Gaza shall be deserted,
    and Ash′kelon shall become a desolation;
Ashdod’s people shall be driven out at noon,
    and Ekron shall be uprooted.

Woe to you inhabitants of the seacoast,
    you nation of the Cher′ethites!
The word of the Lord is against you,
    O Canaan, land of the Philistines;
    and I will destroy you till no inhabitant is left.
And you, O seacoast, shall be pastures,
    meadows for shepherds
    and folds for flocks.
