Thus says the Lord:

(A)“For three transgressions of (B)Gaza,
    and for four, I will not revoke the punishment,
because (C)they carried into exile a whole people
    to deliver them up to Edom.
So I will send a fire upon the wall of (D)Gaza,
    and it shall devour her strongholds.
I will cut off the inhabitants from (E)Ashdod,
    and him who holds the sceptre from Ashkelon;
I will turn my hand against Ekron,
    and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish,”
says the Lord God.

This is what the Lord says:

“For three sins of Gaza,(A)
    even for four, I will not relent.(B)
Because she took captive whole communities
    and sold them to Edom,(C)
I will send fire on the walls of Gaza
    that will consume her fortresses.
I will destroy the king[a] of Ashdod(D)
    and the one who holds the scepter in Ashkelon.
I will turn my hand(E) against Ekron,
    till the last of the Philistines(F) are dead,”(G)
says the Sovereign Lord.(H)
