Prophecy Against Edom
35:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me,
35:2 Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir, and
prophesy against it,
35:3 And say unto it, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O
mount Seir, I am against thee, and I will stretch out mine
hand against thee, and I will make thee most desolate.
35:4 I will lay thy cities waste, and thou shalt be
desolate, and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.
35:5 Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast
shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the
sword in the time of their calamity, in the time that their
iniquity had an end:
35:6 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will
prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: sith
thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.
35:7 Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off
from it him that passeth out and him that returneth.
35:8 And I will fill his mountains with his slain men: in
thy hills, and in thy valleys, and in all thy rivers, shall
they fall that are slain with the sword.
35:9 I will make thee perpetual desolations, and thy cities
shall not return: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
35:10 Because thou hast said, These two nations and these
two countries shall be mine, and we will possess it; whereas
the LORD was there:
35:11 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will even
do according to thine anger, and according to thine envy
which thou hast used out of thy hatred against them; and I
will make myself known among them, when I have judged thee.
35:12 And thou shalt know that I am the LORD, and that I
have heard all thy blasphemies which thou hast spoken
against the mountains of Israel, saying, They are laid
desolate, they are given us to consume.
35:13 Thus with your mouth ye have boasted against me, and
have multiplied your words against me: I have heard them.
35:14 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When the whole earth
rejoiceth, I will make thee desolate.
35:15 As thou didst rejoice at the inheritance of the house
of Israel, because it was desolate, so will I do unto thee:
thou shalt be desolate, O mount Seir, and all Idumea, even
all of it: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
