Alexander Jannaeus destroyed the city after a revolt c. 96 B.C. It was rebuilt as a Roman city by Gabinius. It is the setting for Philip's conversion of an Ethiopian eunuch (Acts 8:26). "Thus says the Lord: For three transgressions of Gaza and for four I will not revoke the punishment .. I will turn my hand against Ekron and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish says the Lord God.."(Amos 1:6-8)
