I will take away his blood out of his mouth,
and his abominations
from between his teeth;
and he also will be a remnant for our God;
and he will be as a chieftain in Judah,
and Ekron as a Jebusite. Bible

“his.” Referring to the Philistines as if they were one person.

“blood out of his mouth.” This is the blood (Hebrew is plural, “bloods,” meaning much blood) of the idolatrous sacrifices which were not kosher and had blood in the meat. We can see this from the next phrase, “and his abominations from between his teeth.”
