Woe unto the inhabitants 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 willevendestroythee, thatthereshall be no inhabitant.
And the coastshall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; theyshallfeedthereupon: in the houses of Ashkelonshallthey lie down in the evening: for the LORDtheir God shallvisitthem, and turnawaytheircaptivity.
Therefore as I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, SurelyMoabshall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetualdesolation: the residue of my peopleshallspoilthem, and the remnant of my peopleshallpossessthem.
And flocksshall lie down in the midst of her, all the beasts of the nations: both the cormorant and the bitternshalllodge in the upperlintels of it; theirvoiceshallsing in the windows; desolationshall be in the thresholds: for he shalluncover the cedarwork.
This is the rejoicingcitythatdweltcarelessly, thatsaid in her heart, I am, and there is nonebeside me: how is she become a desolation, a place for beasts to lie down in! every one thatpasseth by her shallhiss, and wag his hand.
