Then the word of the Lord came to me:
"Son of man, turn your face toward the Ammonites and prophesy against them.
Say to the Ammonites: Hear the word of the Lord God : This is what the Lord God says: Because you said: Good! about My sanctuary when it was desecrated, about the land of Israel when it was laid waste, and about the house of Judah when they went into exile,
therefore I am about to give you to the people of the east as a possession. They will set up their encampments and pitch their tents among you. They will eat your fruit and drink your milk.
I will make Rabbah a pasture for camels and Ammon a sheepfold. Then you will know that I am the Lord."
For this is what the Lord God says: "Because you clapped [your] hands, stamped [your] feet, and rejoiced over the land of Israel with wholehearted contempt,
therefore I am about to stretch out My hand against you and give you as plunder to the nations. I will cut you off from the peoples and eliminate you from the countries. I will destroy you, and you will know that I am the Lord."
This is what the Lord God says: "Because Moab and Seir said: Look, the house of Judah is like all the [other] nations,
therefore I am about to expose Moab's flank beginning with itsa frontier cities, the pride of the land: Beth-jeshimoth, Baal-meon, and Kiriathaim.
I will give it along with Ammon to the people of the east as a possession, so that Ammon will not be remembered among the nations.
So I will execute judgments against Moab, and they will know that I am the Lord."
This is what the Lord God says: "Because Edom acted vengefully against the house of Judah and incurred grievous guilt by taking revenge on them,
therefore this is what the Lord God says: I will stretch out My hand against Edom and cut off both man and animal from it. I will make it a wasteland; they will fall by the sword from Teman to Dedan.
I will take My vengeance on Edom through My people Israel, and they will deal with Edom according to My anger and wrath. So they will know My vengeance." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God .
This is what the Lord God says: "Because the Philistines acted in vengeance and took revenge with deep contempt, destroying [because of their] ancient hatred,
therefore this is what the Lord God says: I am about to stretch out My hand against the Philistines, cutting off the Cherethites and wiping out what remains of the coastal peoples.b17
I will execute great vengeance against them with furious rebukes. They will know that I am the Lord when I take My vengeance on them."
