Ezekiel 35

MSG 1 God's Message came to me: NIV 1 The word of the LORD came to me: MSG 2 "Son of man, confront Mount Seir. Prophesy against it! NIV 2 “Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir; prophesy against it MSG 3 Tell them, 'God, the Master, says: "'I'm coming down hard on you, Mount Seir. I'm stepping in and turning you to a pile of rubble. NIV 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. MSG 4 I'll reduce your towns to piles of rocks. There'll be nothing left of you. Then you'll realize that I am God. NIV 4 I will turn your towns into ruins and you will be desolate. Then you will know that I am the LORD. MSG 5 "'I'm doing this because you've kept this age-old grudge going against Israel: You viciously attacked them when they were already down, looking their final punishment in the face. NIV 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, MSG 6 Therefore, as sure as I am the living God, I'm lining you up for a real bloodbath. Since you loved blood so much, you'll be chased by rivers of blood. NIV 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. MSG 7 I'll reduce Mount Seir to a heap of rubble. No one will either come or go from that place! NIV 7 I will make Mount Seir a desolate waste and cut off from it all who come and go. MSG 8 I'll blanket your mountains with corpses. Massacred bodies will cover your hills and fill up your valleys and ditches. NIV 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. MSG 9 I'll reduce you to ruins and all your towns will be ghost towns - population zero. Then you'll realize that I am God. NIV 9 I will make you desolate forever; your towns will not be inhabited. Then you will know that I am the LORD. MSG 10 "'Because you said, "These two nations, these two countries, are mine. I'm taking over" (even though God is right there watching, right there listening), NIV 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, MSG 11 I'll turn your hate-bloated anger and rage right back on you. You'll know I mean business when I bring judgment on you. NIV 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. MSG 12 You'll realize then that I, God, have overheard all the vile abuse you've poured out against the mountains of Israel, saying, "They're roadkill and we're going to eat them up." NIV 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.” MSG 13 You've strutted around, talking so big, insolently pitting yourselves against me. And I've heard it all. NIV 13 You boasted against me and spoke against me without restraint, and I heard it. MSG 14 "'This is the verdict of God, the Master: With the whole earth applauding, I'll demolish you. NIV 14 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: While the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate. MSG 15 Since you danced in the streets, thinking it was so wonderful when Israel's inheritance was demolished, I'll give you the same treatment: demolition. Mount Seir demolished - yes, every square inch of Edom. Then they'll realize that I am God!' NIV 15 Because you rejoiced when the inheritance of Israel became desolate, that is how I will treat you. You will be desolate, Mount Seir, you and all of Edom. Then they will know that I am the LORD.’ ”
