For Gaza shall be forsaken , and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive outAshdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up .
5Woe unto the inhabitants of the seacoast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant .
And the seacoast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds , and folds for flocks.7
And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the LORDa their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity .
