NIV 1 The word of the LORD is against the land of Hadrach and will rest upon Damascus-- for the eyes of men and all the tribes of Israel are on the LORD-- NLT 2 Doom is certain for Hamath, near Damascus, and for the cities of Tyre and Sidon, though they are so clever. NIV 2 and upon Hamath too, which borders on it, and upon Tyre and Sidon, though they are very skillful. NLT 3 Tyre has built a strong fortress and has made silver and gold as plentiful as dust in the streets! NIV 3 Tyre has built herself a stronghold; she has heaped up silver like dust, and gold like the dirt of the streets. NLT 4 But now the Lord will strip away Tyre’s possessions and hurl its fortifications into the sea, and it will be burned to the ground. NIV 4 But the Lord will take away her possessions and destroy her power on the sea, and she will be consumed by fire. NLT 5 The city of Ashkelon will see Tyre fall and will be filled with fear. Gaza will shake with terror, as will Ekron, for their hopes will be dashed. Gaza’s king will be killed, and Ashkelon will be deserted. NIV 5 Ashkelon will see it and fear; Gaza will writhe in agony, and Ekron too, for her hope will wither. Gaza will lose her king and Ashkelon will be deserted. NLT 6 Foreigners will occupy the city of Ashdod. I will destroy the pride of the Philistines. NIV 6 Foreigners will occupy Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.

The Philistines of Ekron will join my people, as the ancient Jebusites once did. NIV 7 I will take the blood from their mouths, the forbidden food from between their teeth. Those who are left will belong to our God and become leaders in Judah, and Ekron will be like the Jebusites. NLT 8 I will guard my Temple and protect it from invading armies. I am watching closely to ensure that no more foreign oppressors overrun my people’s land. NIV 8 But I will defend my house against marauding forces. Never again will an oppressor overrun my people, for now I am keeping watch.
