Ezekiel 35

Prophecy against Mount Seir

1Moreover, the word of the  Lord came to me saying, 2Son of man, set your face against a  Mount Seir, and prophesy against it 3and say to it, ‘Thus says the Lord
Heb YHWH, usually rendered  Lord , and so throughout the ch
 God, Behold, I am against you, Mount Seir,
And I will c  stretch out My hand against you
And make you a d  desolation and a waste.
4“I will e  lay waste your cities
And you will become a desolation.
Then you will know that I am the  Lord.

5Because you have had everlasting f  enmity and have
Lit poured
delivered the sons of Israel to the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, at the time of the
Or iniquity
i  punishment of the end,
6therefore as I live,” declares the Lord  God, “I will
Lit prepare you for
give you over to k  bloodshed, and bloodshed will pursue you; since you have not hated bloodshed, therefore bloodshed will pursue you.
7I will make Mount Seir a waste and a desolation and I will cut off from it the one who passes through and returns. 8“I will l  fill its mountains with its slain; on your hills and in your valleys and in all your ravines those slain by the sword will
Lit fall in them
9I will make you an everlasting n  desolation and your cities will not be inhabited. Then you will know that I am the  Lord.

10Because you have o  said, ‘These two nations and these two lands will be mine, and we will possess
Lit it
them,’ although the q   Lord was there,
11therefore as I live,” declares the Lord  God, “I will deal with you r  according to your anger and according to your envy which you showed because of your hatred against them; so I will s  make Myself known among them when I judge you. 12Then you will know
Or that I am the  Lord : I have heard
that I, the  Lord, have heard all your revilings which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel saying, ‘They are laid desolate; they are u  given to us for food.’
13“And you have
Lit made great with your mouth
w  spoken arrogantly against Me and have multiplied your words against Me; x  I have heard it.”
14Thus says the Lord  God, “As all the y  earth rejoices, I will make you a desolation. 15“As you z  rejoiced over the inheritance of the house of Israel because it was desolate, aa  so I will do to you. You will be a ab  desolation, O Mount Seir, and all Edom, all of it. Then they will know that I am the  Lord.”’
