before you are driven away
    like the drifting chaff,[a]
before there comes upon you
    the fierce anger of the Lord,
before there comes upon you
    the day of the wrath of the Lord.
Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land,
    who do his commands;
seek righteousness, seek humility;
    perhaps you may be hidden
    on the day of the wrath of the Lord.
For Gaza shall be deserted,
    and Ash′kelon shall become a desolation;
Ashdod’s people shall be driven out at noon,
    and Ekron shall be uprooted.
