So I will send fire on the wall of Gaza
And it will consume her citadels.
I will also eliminate every inhabitant from (A)Ashdod,
As well as him who holds the scepter, from (B)Ashkelon;
And I will direct My [a]power against Ekron,
And the remnant of the (C)Philistines will perish,”
Says the Lord [b]God.

This is what the Lord says:
“For three offenses of (D)Tyre, and for four,
I will not revoke its punishment,
Because they turned an entire population over to Edom
And did not remember the covenant of [c](E)brotherhood.
