The Webster Bible (WBT) 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 thy 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 saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O mount Seir, I [am] against thee, and I will stretch out my hand against thee, and I will make thee most desolate. 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 thy cities waste, and thou shalt be desolate, and thou shalt 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 thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed [the blood of] the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time [that their] iniquity [had] an 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, saith the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee to blood, and blood shall pursue thee: since thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall 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 Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it him that passeth out and him that returneth. 7 I will make Mount Seir a desolate waste and cut off from it all who come and go.
8 And I will fill his mountains with his slain [men]: in thy hills, and in thy valleys, and in all thy rivers, shall they fall that 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 thee perpetual desolations, and thy cities shall not return: and ye 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 thou hast 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, saith the Lord GOD, I will even do according to thy anger, and according to thy envy which thou hast used out of thy hatred against them; and I will make myself known among them, when I have judged 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 shalt know that I [am] the LORD, [and that] I have heard all thy blasphemies which thou hast spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, They are laid desolate, they are given us to consume. 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 Thus with your mouth ye have boasted against me, and have multiplied your words against me: I have heard [them]. 13 You boasted against me and spoke against me without restraint, and I heard it.
14 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When the whole earth rejoiceth, I will make thee desolate. 14 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: While the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate.
15 As thou didst rejoice at the inheritance of the house of Israel, because it was desolate, so will I do to thee: thou shalt be desolate, O mount Seir, 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.' "
