6 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.
47 The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet (A)concerning the Philistines, before Pharaoh struck down (B)Gaza.
5 (A)Baldness has come upon Gaza; (B)Ashkelon has perished.O remnant of their valley, (C)how long will you gash yourselves?
4 (A)For Gaza shall be deserted, and Ashkelon shall become a desolation;Ashdod's people shall be driven out at noon, and Ekron shall be uprooted.
5 (A)Ashkelon shall see it, and be afraid; Gaza too, and shall writhe in anguish; Ekron also, because its hopes are confounded.The king shall perish from Gaza; Ashkelon shall be uninhabited;
