A Prophecy against Edom

1 The word of the Lord came to me: 2 "Son of man, turn your face toward Mount Seira and prophesy against it. 3 Say to it: This is what the Lord God says: Look! I am against you, Mount Seir. I will stretch out My hand against you and make you a desolate waste.b 4 I will turn your cities into ruins,c and you will become a desolation.d Then you will know that I am the Lord. 5 "Because you maintained an ancient hatrede and handed over the Israelites to the power of the sword in the time of their disaster, the time of final punishment,f 6 therefore, as I live"-[this is] the declaration of the Lord God -"I will destine you for bloodshed, and it will pursue you. Since you did not hate bloodshed, it will pursue you.g 7 I will make Mount Seir a desolate waste and will cut off from it those who come and go.h 8 I will fill its mountains with the slain; those slain by the sword will fall on your hills, in your valleys, and in all your ravines.i 9 I will make you a perpetual desolation; your cities will not be inhabited. Then you will know that I am the Lord. 10 "Because you said: These two nations and two lands will be mine, and we will possess them-though the Lord was therej- 11 therefore, as I live"-the declaration of the Lord God -"I will treat [you] according to the anger and jealousy you showed in your hatred of them. I will make Myself known among themk when I judge you. 12 Then you will know that I, the Lord, have heard all the blasphemies you uttered against the mountains of Israel, saying: They are desolate. They have been given to us to devour! 13 You boasted against Mel with your mouth, and spoke many words against Me. I heard [it] Myself! 14 "This is what the Lord God says: While the whole world rejoices, I will make you a desolation. 15 Just as you rejoiced over the inheritance of the house of Israel because it became a desolation, so I will deal with you: you will become a desolation, Mount Seir, and [so will] all Edom in its entirety. Then they will know that I am the Lord.
