The Lord spoke to me. 1
"Mortal man," he said, "denounce the country of Edom.
Tell the people what I, the Sovereign Lord, am saying: "I am your enemy, mountains of Edom! I will make you a desolate wasteland.
I will leave your cities in ruins And your land desolate; Then you will know that I am the Lord.
"You were Israel's constant enemy and let her people be slaughtered in the time of her disaster, the time of final punishment for her sins.
So then - as surely as I, the Sovereign Lord, am the living God - death is your fate, and you cannot escape it. You are guilty of murder, and murder will follow you.
I will make the hill country of Edom a wasteland and kill everyone who travels through it.
I will cover the mountains with corpses, and the bodies of those who are killed in battle will cover the hills and valleys.
