I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod,
and the one who holds the scepter from Ashkelon,
and I will turn my hand against Ekron;
and the remnant of the Philistines will perish,”
says the Lord Yahweh.
“Ashdod.” A chief Philistine city. The Philistine city of Gath is not mentioned (see commentary on Zeph. 2:4).
