The Prophecy against Ammon1And [3came 1the word 2of the lord] to me, saying, 2O son of man, firmly fix your face against the sons of Ammon, and prophesy against them! 3And you shall say to the sons of Ammon, Hear the word of Adonai the lord! Thus says Adonai the lord; Because you rejoiced over my holy places, for it was profaned; and over the land of Israel, for it was obliterated; and over the house of Judah, for they went into captivity. 4On account of this, behold, I deliver you up to the sons of Kedem for an inheritance. And they shall encamp among your chattel among you; and they shall put [2among 3you 1their tents]; they shall eat your fruits, and they shall drink of your fatness. 5And I will give the city of Ammon for pastures of camels, and the sons of Ammon for a pasture of sheep. And you shall realize that I am the lord. 6For thus says the lord; Because you clapped your hand, and stamped your foot, and rejoiced in your soul over the land of Israel; 7on account of this, behold, I will stretch out my hand against you, and I will appoint you for ravaging among the nations; and I will utterly destroy you from out of the peoples, and I will destroy you from out of the regions by destruction; and you shall realize that I am the lord.
Judgment against Moab8Thus says Adonai the lord; Because [4said 1Moab 2and 3Seir], Behold, in the manner of all the nations is the house Judah. 9On account of this, behold, I will disable the shoulder of Moab from the cities of his extremities, the choice land, the house of Beth-jeshimoth above the spring of the city by the sea. 10Of the sons of Kedem [3in addition to 4the 5sons 6of Ammon 1I have given 2them] for an inheritance, so that there should not be a memory of the sons of Ammon among the nations. 11And in Moab I will execute vengeance, and they shall realize that I am the lord.
Judgment against Edom12Thus says Adonai the lord; Because Edom did in their avenging with vengeance against the house of Judah, and resented them, and took vengeance for punishment upon them; 13on account of this, thus says Adonai the lord; Even I will stretch out my hand against Edom. And I will utterly destroy from her man and beast. And I will make it desolate. And from out of Teman and of Ledan the ones being pursued [2by 3the broadsword 1shall fall]. 14And I will execute my vengeance against Edom by the hand of my people Israel. And they shall deal with Edom according to my anger, and according to my rage. And they shall recognize my vengeance, says Adonai the lord.
Judgment against the Philistines15On account of this, thus says Adonai the lord; Because [3did 1the 2Philistines] with vengeance, and raised up vengeance rejoicing from their soul to wipe them away unto the eon. 16On account of this, thus says Adonai the lord; Behold, I shall stretch out my hand against the Philistines. And will utterly destroy the Cherethim, and I will destroy the ones remaining, the ones dwelling on the coast. 17And I will execute among them [2vengeance 1great] in rebukes of rage, and they shall realize that I am Adonai the lord in the executing of my vengeance upon them.
