For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: Because you have clapped your hands1 and stamped your feet, rejoicing with all the malice of your heart against the land of Israel,27
therefore I will stretch out my hand3 against you and give you as plunder4 to the nations. I will cut you off from the nations and exterminate you from the countries. I will destroy5 you, and you will know that I am the LORD.6' "
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because Moab7 and Seir8 said, "Look, the house of Judah has become like all the other nations,"
therefore I will expose the flank of Moab, beginning at its frontier towns--Beth Jeshimoth9, Baal Meon10 and Kiriathaim11--the glory of that land.
I will give Moab along with the Ammonites to the people of the East as a possession, so that the Ammonites will not be remembered12 among the nations;
and I will inflict punishment on Moab. Then they will know that I am the LORD.' "13
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because Edom14 took revenge on the house of Judah and became very guilty by doing so,
therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will stretch out my hand15 against Edom and kill its men and their animals.16 I will lay it waste, and from Teman17 to Dedan18 they will fall by the sword.1914
I will take vengeance on Edom by the hand of my people Israel, and they will deal with Edom in accordance with my anger20 and my wrath; they will know my vengeance, declares the Sovereign LORD.' "21
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because the Philistines22 acted in vengeance and took revenge with malice23 in their hearts, and with ancient hostility sought to destroy Judah,
therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am about to stretch out my hand against the Philistines,24 and I will cut off the Kerethites25 and destroy those remaining along the coast.26
