New American Bible (Revised Edition)
Judgment on the Nations
4 For Gaza shall be forsaken,
and Ashkelon shall be a waste,
Ashdod they shall drive out at midday,
and Ekron[a] shall be uprooted.(A)
5 Ah! You who dwell by the seacoast,
the nation of Cherethites,[b]
the word of the Lord is against you!
O Canaan, land of the Philistines,
I will leave you to perish without an inhabitant!
6 You shall become fields for shepherds,
and folds for flocks.
