6 Thus says the Lord: For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; a because they carried into exile entire communities, to hand them over to Edom.
7 So I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza, fire that shall devour its strongholds.
8 I will cut off the inhabitants from Ashdod, and the one 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.
