GatherH7197 yourselves together, yes, gatherH7197 together, O nationH1471 not desired;H3700
BeforeH2962 the decreeH2706 bringH3205 forth,H3205 before the dayH3117 passH5674 as the chaff,H4671 beforeH2962 H3808 the fierceH2740 angerH639 of the LORDH3068 comeH935 on you, beforeH2962 H3808 the dayH3117 of the LORD'sH3068 angerH639 comeH935 on you.
SeekH1245 you the LORD,H3068 allH3605 you meekH6035 of the earth,H776 whichH834 have workedH6466 his judgment;H4941 seekH1245 righteousness,H6664 seekH1245 meekness:H6038 it mayH194 be you shall be hidH5641 in the dayH3117 of the LORD'sH3068 anger.H639
For GazaH5804 shall be forsaken,H5800 and AshkelonH831 a desolation:H8077 they shall driveH1644 out AshdodH795 at the noonH6672 day, and EkronH6138 shall be rootedH6131 up.
WoeH1945 to the inhabitantsH3427 of the seaH3220 coast,H2256 the nationH1471 of the Cherethites!H3774 the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 is againstH5921 you; O Canaan,H3667 the landH776 of the Philistines,H6430 I will even destroyH6 you, that there shall be noH369 inhabitant.H3427
And the seaH3220 coastH2256 shall be dwellingsH5116 and cottagesH3741 for shepherds,H7462 and foldsH1448 for flocks.H6629
And the coastH2256 shall be for the remnantH7611 of the houseH1004 of Judah;H3063 they shall feedH7462 thereupon: in the housesH1004 of AshkelonH831 shall they lieH7257 downH7257 in the evening:H6153 for the LORDH3068 their GodH430 shall visitH6485 them, and turnH7725 away their captivity.H7622
I have heardH8085 the reproachH2781 of Moab,H4124 and the revilingsH1421 of the childrenH1121 of Ammon,H5983 wherebyH834 they have reproachedH2778 my people,H5971 and magnifiedH1431 themselves againstH5921 their border.H1366
ThereforeH3651 as I live,H2416 saidH5002 the LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 the GodH430 of Israel,H3478 SurelyH3588 MoabH4124 shall be as Sodom,H5467 and the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983 as Gomorrah,H6017 even the breedingH4476 of nettles,H2738 and salt pits,H4417 and a perpetualH5769 desolation:H8077 the residueH7611 of my peopleH5971 shall spoilH962 them, and the remnantH3499 of my peopleH1471 shall possessH5157 them.
ThisH2063 shall they have for their pride,H1347 becauseH3588 they have reproachedH2778 and magnifiedH1431 themselves againstH5921 the peopleH5971 of the LORDH3068 of hosts.H6635
The LORDH3068 will be terribleH3372 to them: for he will famishH7329 allH3605 the godsH430 of the earth;H776 and men shall worshipH7812 him, everyH376 oneH376 from his place,H4725 even allH3605 the islesH339 of the heathen.H1471
You EthiopiansH3569 also,H1571 you shall be slainH2491 by my sword.H2719
And he will stretchH5186 out his handH3027 againstH5921 the north,H6828 and destroyH6 Assyria;H804 and will makeH7760 NinevehH5210 a desolation,H8077 and dryH6723 like a wilderness.H4057
And flocksH5739 shall lieH7257 downH7257 in the middleH8432 of her, allH3605 the beastsH2416 of the nations:H1471 bothH1571 the cormorantH6893 and the bitternH7090 shall lodgeH3885 in the upperH3730 lintelsH3730 of it; their voiceH6963 shall singH7891 in the windows;H2474 desolationH2721 shall be in the thresholds;H5592 for he shall uncoverH6168 the cedarH731 work.H731
ThisH2063 is the rejoicingH5947 cityH5892 that dwelledH3427 carelessly,H983 that saidH559 in her heart,H3824 I am, and there is noneH657 besideH657 me: howH349 is she becomeH1961 a desolation,H8047 a place for beastsH2416 to lieH4769 downH4769 in! everyH3605 one that passesH5674 by her shall hiss,H8319 and wagH5128 his hand.H3027
