My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Jeremiah 47

Philistia

Summary:
The north will overflow all, and you will hear the sound of their war-horses. The Philistines will be destroyed forever finally! Gaza will cry, hoping for God to stop killing.

Key verse:
4. For the day has come
to destroy all the Philistines
and to cut off all survivors

My thoughts:
The Philistines were a real threat and problem for Israel from when they entered Canaan through to the early kings. However, since then, they had diminished in importance and only a remnant of their power remained.
