Because of the day that comes to plunder all the (A)Philistines,
To cut off from (B)Tyre and Sidon every helper who remains;
For the Lord shall plunder the Philistines,
(C)The remnant of the country of (D)Caphtor.[a]
(E)Baldness has come upon Gaza,
(F)Ashkelon is cut off
With the remnant of their valley.
How long will you cut yourself?

“O you (G)sword of the Lord,
How long until you are quiet?
Put yourself up into your scabbard,
Rest and be still!
