I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near— a star shall come out of Jacob, and a scepter shall rise out of Israel; it shall crush the borderlands a of Moab, and the territory b of all the Shethites.
Edom will become a possession, Seir a possession of its enemies, c while Israel does valiantly.
One out of Jacob shall rule, and destroy the survivors of Ir."
