therefore I will expose the flank of Moab, beginning at its frontier towns--Beth Jeshimoth1, Baal Meon2 and Kiriathaim3--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 remembered4 among the nations;
and I will inflict punishment on Moab. Then they will know that I am the LORD.' "5
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because Edom6 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 hand7 against Edom and kill its men and their animals.8 I will lay it waste, and from Teman9 to Dedan10 they will fall by the sword.1114
I will take vengeance on Edom by the hand of my people Israel, and they will deal with Edom in accordance with my anger12 and my wrath; they will know my vengeance, declares the Sovereign LORD.' "13
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because the Philistines14 acted in vengeance and took revenge with malice15 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,16 and I will cut off the Kerethites17 and destroy those remaining along the coast.1817
I will carry out great vengeance19 on them and punish20 them in my wrath. Then they will know that I am the LORD,21 when I take vengeance on them.2223' "
