Prophecy Against Mount Seir1 The word of the Lord came to me: 2 a “Son of man b set your face c against d Mount Seir, and prophesy against it, 3 and say to it, Thus says the Lord God: e Behold, I am against you, Mount Seir, and f I will stretch out my hand against you, g and I will make you a desolation and a waste. 4 h I will lay your cities waste, and you shall become a desolation, and you shall know that I am the Lord. 5 Because i you cherished perpetual enmity and gave over the people of Israel to the power of the sword j at the time of their calamity k at the time of their final punishment, 6 therefore l as I live, declares the Lord God, I will prepare you for blood, and blood shall pursue you; m because you did not hate bloodshed, therefore blood shall pursue you. 7 n I will make Mount Seir a waste o and a desolation, and I will cut off from it p all who come and go. 8 And I will fill q its mountains with the slain. On your hills and in your valleys and in all r your ravines s those slain with the sword shall fall. 9 t I will make you a perpetual desolation, and u your cities shall not be inhabited. Then v you will know that I am the Lord. 10 “Because you said w ‘These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and x we will take possession of them’—although the y Lord was there— 11 therefore z as I live, declares the Lord God, I will deal with you aa according to the anger and ab envy that you showed because of your hatred against them. And ac I will make myself known among them, when I judge you. 12 And you shall know that I am the Lord. ad “I have heard all the revilings that you uttered against the mountains of Israel, saying, ‘They are laid desolate; ae they are given us to devour.’ 13 And af you magnified yourselves against me ag with your mouth, and multiplied your words against me; I heard it. 14 Thus says the Lord God: ah While the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate. 15 As you ai rejoiced over the inheritance of the house of Israel, because it was desolate, so I will deal with you; you shall be desolate, aj Mount Seir, and all Edom, all of it. Then ak they will know that I am the Lord.
