And the word of the LORDcame to me saying,
2"Son of man, set your facetoward the 1sons of Ammon and prophesyagainst them,
and say to the sons of Ammon, 'Hear the word of the LordaGOD ! Thussays the LordGOD, "Because you said, '2Aha !' against My sanctuarywhen it was profaned, and against the land of Israelwhen it was madedesolate, and against the house of Judahwhen they went into exile,
4therefore, behold, I am going to give you to the 3sons of the east for a possession, and they will set their encampments among you and make their dwellings among you; they will 4eat your fruit and drink your milk.
"I will make5Rabbah a pasture for camels and the sons of Ammon a restingplace for flocks. Thus you will know that I am the LORD."
'For thussays the LordGOD, "Because you have 6clapped your hands and stamped your feet and 7rejoiced with all the scorn of your soulagainst the land of Israel,
7therefore, behold, I have 8stretched out My handagainst you and I will give you for 9spoil to the nations. And I will 10cut you off from the peoples and 11make you perish from the lands ; I will destroy you. Thus you will 12know that I am the LORD."
8'Thussays the LordGOD, "Because13Moab and Seirsay, 'Behold, the house of Judah is like all the nations,'
9therefore, behold, I am going to bdeprive the flank of Moab of its cities, of its cities which are on its cfrontiers, the glory of the land, 14Beth-jeshimoth, 15Baal-meon and 16Kiriathaim,
and I will give it for a possessionalong with the sons of Ammon to the 17sons of the east, so that the sons of Ammon will not be remembered among the nations.
"Thus I will executejudgments on Moab, and they will know that I am the LORD."
12'Thussays the LordGOD, "Because18Edom has acted against the house of Judah by takingvengeance, and has incurredgrievousguilt, and avenged themselves upon them,"
13thereforethussays the LordGOD, "I will also 19stretch out My handagainstEdom and 20cutoffman and beast from it. And I will lay it waste ; from 21Teman even to 22Dedan they will fall by the sword.
"23I will lay My vengeance on Edom by the hand of My peopleIsrael. Therefore, they will act in Edom24according to My anger and according to My wrath ; thus they will know My vengeance," declares the LordGOD.
15'Thussays the LordGOD, "Because the Philistines have acted in 25revenge and have takenvengeance with scorn of soul to destroy with everlastingenmity,"
16thereforethussays the LordGOD, "Behold, I will 26stretch out My handagainst the Philistines, even cutoff the 27Cherethites and destroy the remnant of the seacoast .
