"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because Moab1 and Seir2 said, "Look, the house of Judah has become like all the other nations,"
therefore I will expose the flank of Moab, beginning at its frontier towns--Beth Jeshimoth3, Baal Meon4 and Kiriathaim5--the glory of that land.
I will give Moab along with the Ammonites to the people of the East as a possession, so that the Ammonites will not be remembered6 among the nations;
and I will inflict punishment on Moab. Then they will know that I am the LORD.' "7
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because Edom8 took revenge on the house of Judah and became very guilty by doing so,
therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will stretch out my hand9 against Edom and kill its men and their animals.10 I will lay it waste, and from Teman11 to Dedan12 they will fall by the sword.1314
I will take vengeance on Edom by the hand of my people Israel, and they will deal with Edom in accordance with my anger14 and my wrath; they will know my vengeance, declares the Sovereign LORD.' "15
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because the Philistines16 acted in vengeance and took revenge with malice17 in their hearts, and with ancient hostility sought to destroy Judah,
therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am about to stretch out my hand against the Philistines,18 and I will cut off the Kerethites19 and destroy those remaining along the coast.2017
I will carry out great vengeance21 on them and punish22 them in my wrath. Then they will know that I am the LORD,23 when I take vengeance on them.2425' "
