"Like a lion1 coming up from Jordan's thickets2 to a rich pastureland, I will chase Edom from its land in an instant. Who is the chosen one I will appoint for this? Who is like3 me and who can challenge me?4 And what shepherd5 can stand against me?"
Therefore, hear what the LORD has planned against Edom,6 what he has purposed7 against those who live in Teman:8 The young of the flock9 will be dragged away; he will completely destroy10 their pasture because of them.1121
At the sound of their fall the earth will tremble;12 their cry13 will resound to the Red Sea.a
