The Prophecy against Mount Seir1And [3came 1the word 2of the lord] to me, saying, 2O son of man, turn your face against mount Seir, and prophesy unto it! 3And say to it! Thus says the Lord the lord; Behold, I am against you mount Seir, and I will stretch out my hand against you, and I will make you into a wilderness, and you shall be made desolate. 4And [2your cities 3desolate 1I will make], and you will be a wilderness, and you shall know that I am the lord. 5Because you became [2enemy 1an eternal], and sat in place against the house of Israel with treachery, by the hand of enemies with a sword, in time of iniquity, at the last. 6On account of this, as I live, says the Lord the lord; Since [2unto 3blood 1you sinned], even blood shall pursue you. And blood you detested, even blood shall pursue you. 7And I will appoint mount Seir for a wilderness, and for being made desolate; and I will destroy from it men and beasts. 8And I will fill up [4of the 5slain 1your hills 2and 3your ravines]; and in all your plains ones being slain by the sword shall fall among you. 9[4desolation 3an eternal 1I will establish 2you], and your cities no way shall be inhabited any longer. And you shall know that I am the lord. 10On account of your saying, The two nations, and the two places will be mine, and I shall inherit them, and the lord is there. 11On account of this, as I live, says the lord; Even I will do to you according to your hatred, and according to your zeal which you did in your detesting them; and I shall be known to you whenever I judge you. 12And you shall know that I am the lord. I heard the voice of your blasphemies. That you said, The [2mountains 3of Israel 1wilderness 5to us 4have been given] for a thing to be devoured. 13And you spoke great words against me with your mouth; and you called out loud against me -- your words I heard. 14Thus says the lord; In the gladness of all the earth, [3a wilderness 1I will make 2you]. 15As you were glad in the inheritance of the house of Israel, that it was obliterated, thus I shall do you. For you will be a wilderness, O mount Seir, and all Edom shall be completely consumed. And you shall know that I am the lord God.
