Woe to 11you inhabitants of the seacoast, you nation of 12the Cherethites! 13The word of the LORD is against you, 14O Canaan, land of the Philistines; and I will destroy you 15until no inhabitant is left.
718The seacoast shall become the possession of 19the remnant of the house of Judah, 20on which they shall graze, and in the houses of Ashkelon they shall lie down at evening. For the LORD their God 21will be mindful of them and 22restore their fortunes.
Therefore, 26as I live," declares the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Moab shall become 27like Sodom, and the Ammonites 28like Gomorrah, a land possessed by nettles and salt pits, and a waste forever. The remnant of my people shall plunder them, and the survivors of my nation shall possess them."
1436Herds shall lie down in her midst, all kinds of beasts; 37even the owl and the hedgehog shall lodge in her capitals; a voice shall hoot in the window; devastation will be on the threshold; for 38her cedar work will be laid bare.
The identity of the animals rendered owl and hedgehog is uncertain
This is the exultant city 39that lived securely, that said in her heart, "I am, and there is no one else." What a desolation she has become, 40a lair for wild beasts! 41Everyone who passes by her hisses and 42shakes his fist.
