American Standard Version
4 because of the day that cometh to destroy all the Philistines, to cut off from Tyre and Sidon every helper that remaineth: for Jehovah will destroy the Philistines, the remnant of the [a]isle of Caphtor. 5 Baldness is come upon Gaza; Ashkelon is brought to nought, the remnant of their valley: how long wilt thou cut thyself? 6 O thou sword of Jehovah, how long will it be ere thou be quiet? put up thyself into thy scabbard; rest, and be still.Read full chapter

4 For the day has come
to destroy all the Philistines
and to remove all survivors
who could help Tyre(A) and Sidon.(B)

the remnant from the coasts of Caphtor.[a](D)

Ashkelon(F) will be silenced.
You remnant on the plain,
how long will you cut(G) yourselves?
