The Lord speaks against the Philistines
15 “This is what the Lord God says. ‘The Philistines hated Judah. They sent armies to kill and to hurt them. They tried to destroy Judah.’ 16 So this is what the Lord God says. ‘I will punish the Philistines. I will kill their people who remain by the edge of the sea. 17 I am very angry with them and I will punish them strongly. I will do this. Then they will know that I am the Lord.’ ” ’
25:15The Philistines were sailors who lived between Judah and the Mediterranean Sea.
