MOREOVER the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
Son of man, set your face against mount Seir and prophesy against it,
And say to it, Thus says the LORD God: Behold, I am against you, O mount Seir, and I will stretch out my hand against you, and I will make you desolate and waste.
And I will lay your cities waste, and you shall be desolate, and you shall know that I am the LORD.
Because you have had a perpetual enmity and delivered the children of Israel over to the sword at the time of their calamity, at the time when their iniquity had come to an end,
Therefore, as I live, says the LORD God, I will deliver you to the slaughter, and blood shall pursue you;
the blood which you have hated, that very blood shall pursue you.
I will make mount Seir waste and desolate, and destroy from it him that goes out and him that comes in.
And I will fill his mountains with his slain;
on your crags and on your hills and in your valleys shall they fall that are slain with the sword.
I will make you a perpetual desolation, and your cities shall not be inhabited;
and you shall know that I am the LORD.
Because you have said, These two nations and these two kingdoms are mine, and we will possess them, though the LORD was there;
Therefore, as I live, says the LORD God, I will do to you according to your own anger and according to your enmity which you showed toward them, and hatred to them;
and I will make myself known among them when I have judged you.
And you shall know that I am the LORD and that I have heard all your blasphemies which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, They are laid desolate, they are given us to consume.
Thus you dared to speak against me with your mouth, and have multiplied your words against me;
I heard them.
Thus says the LORD God to mount Seir which is situated at the happiest place on the earth: I will make you desolate.
As you rejoiced over the inheritance of the house of Israel because it was desolate, so will I do to you;
you shall be desolate, O mount Seir, and all Edom, even all of it;
and they shall know that I am the LORD.
