    before it’s too late.
The Lord has set a time
    when his fierce anger
will strike like a storm
    and sweep you away.
If you humbly obey the Lord,
    then come and worship him.
If you do right and are humble,
    perhaps you will be safe
on that day
when the Lord
    turns loose his anger.

Judgment on Philistia

Gaza and Ashkelon
will be deserted
    and left in ruins.
Ashdod will be emptied
in broad daylight,
    and Ekron[a] uprooted.
