Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 Son of man, set your face against Mount Se`ir, and prophesy against it, 2 "Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir; prophesy against it
3 and tell it, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against you, Mount Se`ir, and I will stretch out my hand against you, and I will make you a desolation and an astonishment. 3 and say: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, Mount Seir, and I will stretch out my hand against you and make you a desolate waste.
4 I will lay your cities waste, and you shall be desolate; and you shall know that I am the LORD. 4 I will turn your towns into ruins and you will be desolate. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
5 Because you have had a perpetual enmity, and have given over the children of Yisra'el to the power of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time of the iniquity of the end; 5 " 'Because you harbored an ancient hostility and delivered the Israelites over to the sword at the time of their calamity, the time their punishment reached its climax,
6 therefore, as I live, says the Lord GOD, I will prepare you to blood, and blood shall pursue you: since you have not hated blood, therefore blood shall pursue you. 6 therefore as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I will give you over to bloodshed and it will pursue you. Since you did not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you.
7 Thus will I make Mount Se`ir an astonishment and a desolation; and I will cut off from it him who passes through and him who returns. 7 I will make Mount Seir a desolate waste and cut off from it all who come and go.
8 I will fill its mountains with its slain: in your hills and in your valleys and in all your watercourses shall they fall who are slain with the sword. 8 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.
9 I will make you a perpetual desolation, and your cities shall not be inhabited; and you shall know that I am the LORD. 9 I will make you desolate forever; your towns will not be inhabited. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
10 Because you have said, These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess it; whereas the LORD was there: 10 " 'Because you have said, "These two nations and countries will be ours and we will take possession of them," even though I the LORD was there,
11 therefore, as I live, says the Lord GOD, I will do according to your anger, and according to your envy which you have shown out of your hatred against them; and I will make myself known among them, when I shall judge you. 11 therefore as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I will treat you in accordance with the anger and jealousy you showed in your hatred of them and I will make myself known among them when I judge you.
12 You shall know that I, the LORD, have heard all your insults which you have spoken against the mountains of Yisra'el, saying, They are laid desolate, they are given us to devour. 12 Then you will know that I the LORD have heard all the contemptible things you have said against the mountains of Israel. You said, "They have been laid waste and have been given over to us to devour."
13 You have magnified yourselves against me with your mouth, and have multiplied your words against me: I have heard it. 13 You boasted against me and spoke against me without restraint, and I heard it.
14 Thus says the Lord GOD: When the whole eretz rejoices, I will make you desolate. 14 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: While the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate.
15 As you did rejoice over the inheritance of the house of Yisra'el, because it was desolate, so will I do to you: you shall be desolate, Mount Se`ir, and all Edom, even all of it; and they shall know that I am the LORD. 15 Because you rejoiced when the inheritance of the house of Israel became desolate, that is how I will treat you. You will be desolate, O Mount Seir, you and all of Edom. Then they will know that I am the LORD.' "
