|Ezekiel 35 |
1 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
2 "Son of man, set your face against mount Seir and prophesy against it,
3 And say to it, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, O mount Seir [the descendants of Esau], I am against you, and I will stretch out my hand against you and I will make you most desolate.
4 I will lay your cities waste and you shall be desolate, and you shall know that I am the LORD.
5 Because you have had a perpetual hatred and have delivered the children of Israel to the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time of their their final punishment,
6 Therefore, as I live, says the Lord GOD, I will give you over to bloodshed, and bloodshed shall pursue you; since you have not hated bloodshed, therefore bloodshed shall pursue you.
7 Thus I will make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it those who pass through it and those who return.
8 And I will fill its mountains with its slain men; on your hills and in your valleys and in all your rivers shall those fall who are slain with the sword.
9 I will make you a perpetual desolations and your cities shall be uninhabited. And you shall know that I am the LORD.
10 Because you have said, "These two nations and countries shall be mine and we will possess them," even though I the LORD was there,
11 Therefore, as I live, says the Lord GOD, I will treat you according to your anger and envy that you have shown because of your hatred for them, and I will make myself known among them, when I have judged you.
12 And you shall know that I am the LORD, and that I have heard all your blasphemies which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, "They are laid waste, they are given over to us to consume."
13 Thus you have boasted against me with your mouth, and have multiplied your words against me. I have heard them.
14 Thus says the Lord GOD: When the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate.
15 As you rejoiced at the inheritance of the house of Israel because it was desolate, so I will do to you; you shall be desolate, O mount Seir and all Idumea, even all of it. And they shall know that I am the LORD.'"
