The word of the LORD came to me:
"Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir;1 prophesy against it
and say: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, Mount Seir, and I will stretch out my hand2 against you and make you a desolate waste.34
I will turn your towns into ruins4 and you will be desolate. Then you will know that I am the LORD.55
" 'Because you harbored an ancient hostility and delivered the Israelites over to the sword6 at the time of their calamity,7 the time their punishment reached its climax,86
therefore as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I will give you over to bloodshed9 and it will pursue you.10 Since you did not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you.
I will make Mount Seir a desolate waste11 and cut off from it all who come and go.128
I will fill your mountains with the slain; those killed by the sword will fall on your hills and in your valleys and in all your ravines.13
