2 Mortal, set your face against Mount Seir, and prophesy against it, 2 "Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir; prophesy against it
3 and say to it, Thus says the Lord God: I am against you, Mount Seir; I stretch out my hand against you to make you a desolation and a waste. 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.

5 Because you cherished an ancient enmity, and gave over the people of Israel to the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, at the time of 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 therefore, as I live, says the Lord God, I will prepare you for blood, and blood shall pursue you; since you did not hate bloodshed, bloodshed 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 I will make Mount Seir a waste and a desolation; and I will cut off from it all who come and go. 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 the slain; on your hills and in your valleys and in all your watercourses those killed with the sword shall fall. 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 never be inhabited. Then 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 said, "These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will take possession of them,"—although 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 deal with you according to the anger and envy that you showed because of your hatred against them; and I will make myself known among you, when I 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 the abusive speech that you uttered against the mountains of Israel, 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 And you magnified yourselves against me with your mouth, and multiplied your words against me; I heard it. 13 You boasted against me and spoke against me without restraint, and I heard it.
14 Thus says the Lord God: As the whole earth 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 rejoiced over the inheritance of the house of Israel, because it was desolate, so I will deal with you; you shall be desolate, Mount Seir, and all Edom, all of it. Then 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.' "
