14 Therefore you will give parting (A)gifts
In behalf of Moresheth-gath;
The houses of (B)Achzib will become a [a](C)deception
To the kings of Israel.
15 Moreover, I will bring on you
The one who takes possession,
You inhabitant of [b](D)Mareshah.
The glory of Israel will enter (E)Adullam.
16 Shave yourself (F)bald, yes, cut off your hair,
Because of the children of your delight;
Extend your baldness like the eagle,
For they will (G)go from you into exile.
