(A)before the decree takes effect[a]
    —before the day passes away (B)like chaff—
(C)before there comes upon you
    the burning anger of the Lord,
before there comes upon you
    the day of the anger of the Lord.
(D)Seek the Lord, (E)all you humble of the land,
    who do his just commands;[b]
(F)seek righteousness; seek humility;
    (G)perhaps (H)you may be hidden
    on the day of the anger of the Lord.
(I)For Gaza shall be deserted,
    and Ashkelon shall become a desolation;
Ashdod's people shall be driven out at noon,
    and Ekron shall be uprooted.
