Woe unto the inhabitants6 of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD [is] against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy52 thee, that there shall be no inhabitant.6
And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed4 thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down4 in the evening: for the LORD their God shall visit4 them, and turn away1 their captivity. 7622
Therefore [as] I live, saith7 the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, [even] the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, 4417 and a perpetual 5769 desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil4 them, and the remnant of my people shall possess4 them.
And flocks shall lie down1 in the midst of her, all the beasts of the nations: both the cormorant and the bittern shall lodge4 in the upper lintels of it; [their] voice shall sing34 in the windows; desolation [shall be] in the thresholds: for he shall uncover14 the cedar work.
This [is] the rejoicing city that dwelt6 carelessly, that said6 in her heart, I [am], and [there is] none beside me: how is she become a desolation, a place for beasts to lie down in! every one that passeth by6 her shall hiss,4 [and] wag55 his hand.
