Jeremiah 47:5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Baldness is visited upon Gaza,
    Ashkelon is reduced to silence;
Ashdod, remnant of their strength,
    how long will you gash yourself?[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 47:5 Baldness…gash yourself: close-cropped hair, silence, and ritual slashing of the body express mourning and grief and here represent the mourner’s awareness that chaos has overcome order (cf. 41:5).

Amos 1:6-8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Philistia

Thus says the Lord:

For three crimes of Gaza, and now four—
    I will not take it back—
Because they exiled an entire population,
    handing them over to Edom,
I will send fire upon the wall of Gaza,
    and it will devour its strongholds;
From Ashdod I will cut off the one enthroned
    and the sceptered ruler from Ashkelon;
I will turn my hand against Ekron,
    and the last of the Philistines shall perish,
    says the Lord God.
