Philistia

Post  A Bible Student on Sat Jan 03, 2015 2:25 am

The ancient Philistines were around what is now the modern-day Gaza Strip.  The Gaza Strip is now home to the Palestinians with Hamas being in control of the government.

See: Map of Kingdoms around Israel circa 830BC

Amos 1:6-8
Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they carried away captive the whole captivity, to deliver them up to Edom:  But I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza, which shall devour the palaces thereof:  And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him that holdeth the sceptre from Ashkelon, and I will turn mine hand against Ekron: and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish, saith the Lord GOD.
