Where was Philistia?

Psalm 87:4 (ESV)

4 Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon; behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Cush “This one was born there,” they say.

Philistia was a threat in the west. It was the land inhabited by the Philistines. They were bitter enemies against Israel, especially during the time of Saul and David (1 Samuel 1:1–31:13 - 2 Samuel 1:1–24:25).
