Bible: Amos 1:6-8

1:6 This is what the Lord says:

“Because Gaza 1  has committed three crimes 2 

make that four! 3  – I will not revoke my decree of judgment. 4 

They deported a whole community 5  and sold them 6  to Edom.

1:7 So I will set Gaza’s city wall 7  on fire;

fire 8  will consume her fortresses.

1:8 I will remove 9  the ruler 10  from Ashdod, 11 

the one who holds the royal scepter from Ashkelon. 12 

I will strike Ekron 13  with my hand; 14 

the rest of the Philistines will also die.” 15 

The sovereign Lord has spoken!
