(B)a mixed people[a] shall dwell in Ashdod,
    and I will cut off the pride of Philistia.

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

    and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish,”
says the Lord God.
