Ezekiel 35 (Wycliffe)

View In My Bible
1 And the word of the Lord was made to me, and he said, 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,) 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.) 4 I shall destroy thy cities, and thou shalt be forsaken; and thou shalt 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;) 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. 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; 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.) 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. 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;) 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;) 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. 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.) 14 The Lord God saith these things, While all the land is glad, I shall turn thee into (a) wilderness. 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.)
