Say to them, 'Hear the word of the Sovereign LORD. This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Because you said "Aha!1" over my sanctuary when it was desecrated2 and over the land of Israel when it was laid waste and over the people of Judah when they went into exile,3
therefore I will stretch out my hand11 against you and give you as plunder12 to the nations. I will cut you off from the nations and exterminate you from the countries. I will destroy13 you, and you will know that I am the LORD.14' "
therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will stretch out my hand23 against Edom and kill its men and their animals.24 I will lay it waste, and from Teman25 to Dedan26 they will fall by the sword.27
