Gaza and Ashkelon will be abandoned, Ashdod and Ekron torn down.
And what sorrow awaits you Philistines who live along the coast and in the land of Canaan, for this judgment is against you, too! The LORD will destroy you until not one of you is left.
The Philistine coast will become a wilderness pasture, a place of shepherd camps and enclosures for sheep and goats.
The remnant of the tribe of Judah will pasture there. They will rest at night in the abandoned houses in Ashkelon. For the LORD their God will visit his people in kindness and restore their prosperity again.
