Ezekiel 35

1 Moreover the Word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir and prophesy against it,
3 and say to it, Thus says the Lord Jehovah: Behold, O Mount Seir, I am against you; I will stretch out My hand against you, and make you most desolate;
4 I shall lay your cities waste, and you shall be desolate. And you shall know that I am Jehovah.
5 Because you have had an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity had come to an end;
6 therefore, as I live, declares the Lord Jehovah, I will prepare you for blood, and blood shall pursue you. Since you have not hated blood, therefore blood shall pursue you.
7 Thus I will make Mount Seir a desolate waste, and cut off from it the one who passes through 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 will make you desolate forever, and your cities shall not again be inhabited; and you shall know that I am Jehovah.
10 Because you have said, These two nations and these two lands shall be mine, and we will possess them (although Jehovah was there),
11 therefore, as I live, declares the Lord Jehovah, I will do 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 And you shall know that I am Jehovah. I have heard all your blasphemies which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, They are desolate; they are given to us to consume.
13 Thus with your mouth you have boasted against Me and multiplied your words against Me; I have heard them.
14 Thus says the Lord Jehovah: The whole earth will rejoice when I make you desolate.
15 As you rejoiced because the inheritance of the house of Israel was desolate, so I will do to you. You shall be desolate, O Mount Seir, as well as all of Edom; all of it! And they shall know that I am Jehovah.
