Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And the word of the Lord was made to me, and he said, 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 Thou, son of man, set thy face against the hill of Seir; and thou shalt prophesy to it, (Thou, son of man, set thy face toward the hill country of Seir; and thou shalt prophesy against it,) 2 "Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir; prophesy against it
3 and shalt say to it, The Lord God saith these things, Thou hill of Seir, lo! I to thee; I shall stretch forth mine hand on thee, and I shall give thee desolate and forsaken. (and shalt say to it, The Lord God saith these things, Thou hill country of Seir, lo! I am against thee; I shall stretch forth my hand upon thee, and I shall make thee into a desolate wilderness.) 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 shall destroy thy cities, and thou shalt be forsaken; 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 For thou were an enemy everlasting, and closedest together the sons of Israel into the hands of sword, in the time of their torment, in the time of the last wickedness; (For thou were an everlasting enemy, and hast altogether enclosed the Israelites in the hands of the sword, in the time of their torment, at the time of the last wickedness;) 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, for I shall give thee to blood, and blood shall pursue thee; and sith thou hatedest blood, 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 And I shall give the hill of Seir desolate and forsaken (And I shall make the hill country of Seir a desolate wilderness), and I shall take away from it a goer and a comer-again; 7 I will make Mount Seir a desolate waste and cut off from it all who come and go.
8 and I shall fill the hills thereof with the carrions of their slain men. Men slain by sword shall fall down in thy little hills, and in thy valleys, and in thy strands. (and I shall fill its hills with the bodies of their slain. People killed by the sword shall fall down in thy little hills, and in thy valleys, and by thy streams.) 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 shall give thee into everlasting wildernesses, and thy cities shall not be inhabited (I shall make thee into everlasting wildernesses, and thy cities shall not be inhabited); and ye shall know, that I am the Lord God. 9 I will make you desolate forever; your towns will not be inhabited. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
10 For thou saidest, Two folks and two lands shall be mine, and I shall wield those by heritage, when the Lord was there; (For thou saidest, Those two nations and two lands shall be mine, and I shall possess them by inheritance, even though 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 I live, saith the Lord God, for I shall do by thy wrath, and by thine envy, which thou didest, hating them (my people), and I shall be made known by them, when I shall deem thee; (and so as I live, saith the Lord God, I shall do by thy anger, and by thy envy, which thou didest, in hating my people, and I shall be known by them, when I shall 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 (then) thou shalt know, that I am the Lord. I heard all thy shames, which thou spakest of the hills of Israel (I heard all thy shameful words, which thou spokest against the hills of Israel), and saidest, The hills of Israel be forsaken, and be given to us, for 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 ye have risen on me with your mouth, and ye have depraved, [or spoken evil,] against me; I heard your words. (And ye have risen against me with your mouth, and ye have spoken evil against me; I heard your words.) 13 You boasted against me and spoke against me without restraint, and I heard it.
14 The Lord God saith these things, While all the land is glad, I shall turn thee into (a) wilderness. 14 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: While the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate.
15 As thou haddest joy on the heritage of the house of Israel, for it was destroyed, so I shall do to thee; the hill of Seir shall be destroyed, and all Idumea; and they shall know, that I am the Lord. (Like thou haddest joy over the inheritance of the house of Israel, for it was destroyed, so I shall do to thee; the hill country of Seir shall be destroyed, and all of Edom; 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.' "
