Ezekiel 25

And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Son of man, set your face steadfastly against the children of Ammon, and prophesy against them; and you shall say to the children of Ammon: Hear the word of the Lord; thus says the Lord: Forasmuch as you have rejoiced against My sanctuary, because it was profaned; and against the land of Israel, because it was laid waste, and against the house of Judah, because they went into captivity; therefore, behold, I will deliver you to the children of Kedem for an inheritance, and they shall lodge in you with their stuff, and they shall pitch their tents in you; they shall eat your fruits, and they shall drink your milk. And I will give up the city of Ammon for camels' pastures, and the children of Ammon for a pasture of sheep; and you shall know that I am the Lord. For thus says the Lord: Because you have clapped your hands, and stamped with your foot, and heartily rejoiced against the land of Israel; therefore I will stretch out My hand against you, and I will make you a spoil to the nations; and I will utterly destroy you from among the peoples, and I will completely cut you off from out of the countries; and you shall know that I am the Lord. Thus says the Lord; Because Moab has said, Behold, are not the houses of Israel and Judah like all the other nations? Therefore, behold, I will weaken the shoulder of Moab from his frontier cities, even the choice land, the house of Beth Jeshimoth above the fountain of the city, by the seaside. 10 I have given him the children of Kedem in addition to the children of Ammon for an inheritance, that there may be no remembrance of the children of Ammon. 11 And I will execute vengeance on Moab; and they shall know that I am the Lord. 12 Thus says the Lord: Because of what the Edomites have done in taking vengeance on the house of Judah, and because they have remembered injuries, and have exacted full recompense; 13 therefore thus says the Lord: I will also stretch out My hand upon Edom, and will utterly destroy out of it both man and beast, and I will make it desolate; and they that are pursued out of Teman shall fall by the sword. 14 And I will execute My vengeance on Edom by the hand of My people Israel; and they shall deal in Edom according to My anger and according to My wrath, and they shall know My vengeance, says the Lord. 15 Therefore thus says the Lord: Because the Philistines have wrought revengefully, and raised up vengeance rejoicing from their heart to destroy the Israelites to a man; 16 therefore thus says the Lord: Behold, I will stretch out My hand upon the Philistines, and will utterly destroy the Cretans, and will cut off the remnant that dwell by the seacoast. 17 And I will execute great vengeance upon them, and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I have brought My vengeance upon them.
