GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 The LORD spoke his word to me. He said, 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 "Son of man, turn to Mount Seir, and prophesy against it. 2 "Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir; prophesy against it
3 Tell it, 'This is what the Almighty LORD says: I'm against you, Mount Seir. I will use my power against you, and you will become a wasteland. 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 turn your cities into ruins, and you will become a wasteland. Then you will 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 "'You have always been an enemy of Israel. You deserted the people of Israel in battle when they were in trouble during their final punishment. 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 That is why, as I live, declares the Almighty LORD, I will let you be murdered. Murderers will pursue you. Since you don't hate murdering people, murder will 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 I will turn Mount Seir into a barren wasteland, and I will destroy everyone who comes or goes from there. 7 I will make Mount Seir a desolate waste and cut off from it all who come and go.
8 I will fill your mountains with those who have been killed. Those killed in battle will fall on your hills and in your valleys and ravines. 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 turn you into a permanent wasteland. Your cities will not be lived in. Then you will 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 "'You said, "These two nations, Israel and Judah, along with their land, belong to us. We will take possession of them." But 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 That is why, as I live, declares the Almighty LORD, I will do to you what you did to them. When you were angry and jealous, you acted hatefully toward them. 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 Then you will know that I, the LORD, heard all the insults that you spoke about the mountains of Israel. You said, "They have been deserted and handed over to us to use up." 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 bragged and continually talked against me. I heard you. 13 You boasted against me and spoke against me without restraint, and I heard it.
14 "'This is what the Almighty LORD says: The whole earth will be glad when I turn you into a wasteland. 14 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: While the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate.
15 You were happy when the land of Israel became a wasteland. I will do the same thing to you. You will become a wasteland, Mount Seir, and so will all of Edom. Then you will 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.' "
