6 Thus says the LORD: 1"For three transgressions of 2Gaza, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment, because 3they carried into exile a whole people to deliver them up to Edom.
7 So I will send a fire upon the wall of 4Gaza, and it shall devour her strongholds.
8 I will cut off the inhabitants from 5Ashdod, and him who holds the scepter from Ashkelon; I will turn my hand against Ekron, and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish," says the Lord GOD.
