A prophecy, the word of ADONAI: In the land of Hadrakh and Dammesek is where [God] comes to rest, for the eyes of humankind are directed toward ADONAI, as are those of all the tribes of Isra'el,
also Hamat at its border, Tzor and Tzidon, for she is very wise.
Tzor built herself a fortified tower, heaping up silver as if it were dust and fine gold as if it were mud in the streets.
But Adonai will dispossess her and break her power at sea, while the city itself will be destroyed by fire.
On seeing this, Ashkelon will be terrified; 'Azah too will writhe in pain; likewise 'Ekron, as her hopes are dashed. "The king will vanish from 'Azah, Ashkelon will be without people,
and a mixed people will live in Ashdod, as I destroy the pride of the P'lishtim.
I will end their eating meat with its blood still in it, snatching the disgusting things from between their teeth." But the surviving remnant will belong to our God; it will be like a clan in Y'hudah; and 'Ekron will be like a Y'vusi.
"Then I will guard my house against armies, so that none will march through or return. No oppressor will ever again overrun them, for now I am watching with my own eyes.
