Judges 1:18  (King James Version)
Also Judah took Gaza with the coast thereof, and Askelon with the coast thereof, and Ekron with the coast thereof.
 


Also Judah
There is the following remarkable variation here in the Septuagint: [Kai ouk eklronomsen Ioudas tn Gazan, oude ta horia auts; oude tn Askalna, oude ta horia auts; kai tn Akkarn, oude ta horia auts; tn Azton, oude ta perisporia auts.] "But Judah did not possess Gaza, nor the coasts thereof; nor Askelon, nor the coasts thereof; nor Ekron, nor the coasts thereof; nor Ashdod, nor the coasts thereof." Procopius and Augustine read the same; and Josephus (Ant
1. v
c. 2) says that the Israelites only took Askelon and Ashdod, but not Gaza or Ekron; and from ch. 3:3 and the whole succeeding history, it appears that these cities were not in the possession of the Israelites, but of the Philistines.
