Say to the Ammonites, Hear the word of the Lord GOD: 4Thus says the Lord GOD, Because you said, 5'Aha!' over my 6sanctuary when it was profaned, and over the land of Israel when it was made desolate, and over the house of Judah when they went into exile,
therefore behold, I am handing you over to 7the people of the East for a possession, and they shall set their encampments among you and make their dwellings in your midst. They shall eat your fruit, and they shall drink your milk.
therefore, behold, 16I have stretched out my hand against you, and 17will hand you over as plunder to the nations. And I will cut you off from the peoples and will make you perish out of the countries; I will destroy you. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
