This is what the Sovereign LORD says:1 The enemy said of you, "Aha!2 The ancient heights3 have become our possession.4" '
Therefore prophesy and say, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Because they ravaged5 and hounded you from every side so that you became the possession of the rest of the nations and the object of people's malicious talk and slander,64
therefore, O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Sovereign LORD: This is what the Sovereign LORD says to the mountains and hills, to the ravines and valleys,7 to the desolate ruins8 and the deserted9 towns that have been plundered and ridiculed10 by the rest of the nations around you11--
this is what the Sovereign LORD says: In my burning12 zeal I have spoken against the rest of the nations, and against all Edom, for with glee and with malice in their hearts they made my land their own possession so that they might plunder its pastureland.'13
