City of Ekron and the Philistines. Soothsayers - Isaiah 2:6
In the second chapter of Isaiah the prophet describes the Philistines as being “soothsayers” which is defined as those who practice idolatry and worship pagan gods (divination, magic, fortune telling, witchcraft). “Because they are filled with eastern ways, They are soothsayers like the Philistines” – Isaiah 2

In the Old Testament the city of Ekron is described as one of the primary capital cities of the Philistines.
"Ekron. The lords of the Philistines”- Joshua 13.
“I will turn mine hand against Ekron: and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish”- Amos 1
“Baalzebub the god of Ekron (Philistines)” - 2 Kings 1

Baalzebub being the pagan Baal idols and often a word that is used to describe worship of demons and/or the devil himself. (Matthew 10:25). When you perform an in-depth investigation it is clearly evident that these verses from the Bible about the Philistines can be proven as historical facts.

Ruler of Ekron InscriptionThe Ruler of Ekron Inscription
Major archaeological excavations were conducted at Tel Mikne (Ekron) between 1981 and 1996, providing much information about the history and culture of Philistine Ekron during the 600 years of its existence (from the 12th to the end of the 7th century B.C.), and proof of the identification as Ekron was found in an inscription uncovered in its temple complex.

The Ekron Royal Dedicatory Inscription incised on a rectangular shaped limestone block was found on the floor of the sanctuary stella. The five-line inscription specifically mentions Ekron, thus confirming the identification of the site, as well as five of its rulers.The translated inscription reads:

"This temple was built by 'Akish, son of Padi, son of Yasid, son of Ada, son of Ya'ir, RULER OF EKRON, for Ptgyh, his (divine) lady. May she bless him, and guard him, and prolong his days, and bless his land."

For additional information see Tel Miqne-Ekron. A summary of fourteen seasons of excavation 1981-1996.

Book of Isaiah Bible
 
"He was wounded for our transgressions and he was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement for our peace was upon him and by his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray. We have turned every one to his own way and God has laid on him the iniquity of us all" - Isaiah 53
