An Oracle Concerning Philistia

Isaiah 14

28 This is the 1 burden which came in the year that d King Ahaz died.

29 "Do not rejoice, all you of Philistia,
e Because the rod that struck you is broken;
For out of the serpent's roots will come forth a viper,
f And its offspring will be a fiery flying serpent.
30 The firstborn of the poor will feed,
And the needy will lie down in safety;
I will kill your roots with famine,
And it will slay your remnant.
31 Wail, O gate! Cry, O city!
All you of Philistia are dissolved;
For smoke will come from the north,
And no one will be alone in his 2 appointed times."

32 What will they answer the messengers of the nation?
That g the LORD has founded Zion,
And h the poor of His people shall take refuge in it.
