Therefore thus saith the Lord God
Because of such wretched malice and despiteful usage: behold, I will stretch out mine hand upon the Philistines;
as is foretold, ( Jeremiah 47:1 ) , and I will cut off the Cherethims:
one of the tribes of the Philistines, a principal part of their country, which lay to the south, ( 1 Samuel 30:14 ) ( Zephaniah 2:5 ) , there is a beautiful play on words F9 in the Hebrew: and destroy the remnant of the seacoast;
as that of Ashdod, Caphtor, and Ashkelon, formerly spoiled by other persons; what they left should now be utterly destroyed; see ( Isaiah 20:1 ) ( Jeremiah 25:20 ) ( Jeremiah 47:4 Jeremiah 47:5 )
