1 And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying: 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 `Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir, and prophesy against it, 2 "Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir; prophesy against it
3 and thou hast said to it: Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Lo, I [am] against thee, O mount Seir, And have stretched out My hand against thee, And made thee 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 Thy cities a waste I make, and thou art a desolation, And thou hast known that I [am] Jehovah. 4 I will turn your towns into ruins and you will be desolate. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
5 Because of thy having an enmity age-during, And thou dost saw the sons of Israel, By the hands 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, I live -- an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah, Surely for blood I do appoint thee, And blood doth pursue thee, If blood thou hast not hated, Blood also doth pursue thee. 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 And I have given mount Seir for a desolation and an astonishment, And have cut off from it him who is passing over and him who is returning, 7 I will make Mount Seir a desolate waste and cut off from it all who come and go.
8 And filled his mountains with his wounded, Thy hills, and thy valleys, and all thy streams, The pierced of the sword fall into them. 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 Desolations age-during I make thee, And thy cities do not return, And ye have known that I [am] Jehovah. 9 I will make you desolate forever; your towns will not be inhabited. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
10 Because of thy saying: The two nations and the two lands are mine, and we have possessed it, And Jehovah hath been 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, I live -- an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah, And I have done according to thine anger, And according to thine envy, With which thou hast wrought, Because of thy hatred against them, And I have been known among them when I judge thee. 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 And thou hast known that I -- Jehovah, I have heard all thy despisings that thou hast spoken Against mountains of Israel, saying: A desolation, to us they were given for food. 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 And ye magnify yourselves against Me with your mouth, And have made abundant against Me your words, I -- I have heard. 13 You boasted against me and spoke against me without restraint, and I heard it.
14 Thus said the Lord Jehovah: According to the rejoicing of the whole land, A desolation I make of thee. 14 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: While the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate.
15 According to thy joy at the inheritance of the house of Israel because of desolation, So I do to thee -- a desolation thou art, O mount Seir, and all Edom -- all of it, And they have known that I [am] Jehovah! 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.' "
