Ezekiel 35

VIN(i) 1 And the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2 "Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir, and prophesy against it, 3 And say to it, So says the Sovereign LORD: Behold, I am against you, Mount Seir, and I will stretch My hand against you, and I will make you a ruin and a waste. 4 I will lay your cities waste, and you will be desolate. Then you will know that I am the LORD. 5 because there has been to you an ancient hostility, and you handed over the Israelites to the power of the sword at the time of their disaster, at the time of their final punishment. 6 "'Therefore as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD: I will give you over to bloodshed (death), and bloodshed (death) will pursue you. Since you have not hated bloodshed, therefore bloodshed will pursue you. 7 And I will make Mount Seir a cause for wonder and a waste, cutting off from it all comings and goings. 8 I will fill its mountains with its slain. The slain with the sword will fall in your hills and in your valleys and in all your watercourses. 9 I will make you a perpetual desolation, and your cities will not be inhabited. Then you will know that I am the LORD. 10 Because you have said, These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess them; although the LORD was there: 11 Therefore, as I live," declares the Sovereign LORD, "so I will deal with you according to your anger and according to your jealousy that you did, because of your hatred against them, and I will make myself known among them when I judge you. 12 You will know that I, the LORD, have heard all your insults which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, 'They have been laid desolate. They have been given us to devour.' 13 and you have spoken swelling words against me with your mouth: I have heard [them]. 14 Thus says the Sovereign LORD: When the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate. 15 "As you rejoiced over the inheritance of the house of Israel because it was desolate, so I will do to you. You will be desolated, O Mount Seir, and all Edom, all of it. Then they will know that I am the LORD.’"
