Ezekiel 35

Prophecy Against Mount Seir

1 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2 "Son of man, set your face against a Mount Seir and b prophesy against it, 3 "and say to it, 'Thus says the Lord GOD:
"Behold, O Mount Seir, I am against you;
c I will stretch out My hand against you,
And make you 1 most desolate;
4 I shall lay your cities waste,
And you shall be desolate.
Then you shall know that I am the LORD.
5 d "Because you have had an 2 ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, e when their iniquity came to an end, 6 "therefore, as I live," says the Lord GOD, "I will prepare you for f blood, and blood shall pursue you; g since you have not hated 3 blood, therefore blood shall pursue you. 7 "Thus I will make Mount Seir 4 most desolate, and cut off from it the h one who leaves and the one who returns. 8 "And I will fill its mountains with the slain; on your hills and in your valleys and in all your ravines those who are slain by the sword shall fall. 9 i "I will make you 5 perpetually desolate, and your cities shall be uninhabited; j then you shall know that I am the LORD.

10 "Because you have said, 'These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will k possess them,' although l the LORD was there, 11 "therefore, as I live," says the Lord GOD, "I will do m according to your anger and according to the envy which you showed in your hatred against them; and I will make Myself known among them when I judge you.

12 n "Then you shall know that I am the LORD. I have o heard all your p blasphemies which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, 'They are desolate; they are given to us to consume.' 13 "Thus q with your mouth you have 6 boasted against Me and multiplied your r words against Me; I have heard them." 14 'Thus says the Lord GOD: s "The whole earth will rejoice when I make you desolate. 15 "As you rejoiced because the inheritance of the house of Israel was desolate, u so I will do to you; you shall be desolate, O Mount Seir, as well as all of Edom - all of it! Then they shall know that I am the LORD." '
