therefore I will stretch out my hand1 against you and give you as plunder2 to the nations. I will cut you off from the nations and exterminate you from the countries. I will destroy3 you, and you will know that I am the LORD.4' "
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because Moab5 and Seir6 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 Jeshimoth7, Baal Meon8 and Kiriathaim9--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 remembered10 among the nations;
and I will inflict punishment on Moab. Then they will know that I am the LORD.' "11
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because Edom12 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 hand13 against Edom and kill its men and their animals.14 I will lay it waste, and from Teman15 to Dedan16 they will fall by the sword.1714
I will take vengeance on Edom by the hand of my people Israel, and they will deal with Edom in accordance with my anger18 and my wrath; they will know my vengeance, declares the Sovereign LORD.' "19
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because the Philistines20 acted in vengeance and took revenge with malice21 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,22 and I will cut off the Kerethites23 and destroy those remaining along the coast.2417
I will carry out great vengeance25 on them and punish26 them in my wrath. Then they will know that I am the LORD,27 when I take vengeance on them.2829' "
