1
And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying:
2
`Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir, and prophesy against it,
3
and thou hast said to it: Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Lo, I [am] against thee, O mount Seir, And have stretched out My hand against thee, And made thee a desolation and an astonishment.
4
Thy cities a waste I make, and thou art a desolation, And thou hast known that I [am] Jehovah.
5
Because of thy having an enmity age-during, And thou dost saw the sons of Israel, By the hands of the sword, In the time of their calamity, In the time of the iniquity of the end:
6
Therefore, I live — an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah, Surely for blood I do appoint thee, And blood doth pursue thee, If blood thou hast not hated, Blood also doth pursue thee.
7
And I have given mount Seir for a desolation and an astonishment, And have cut off from it him who is passing over and him who is returning,
8
And filled his mountains with his wounded, Thy hills, and thy valleys, and all thy streams, The pierced of the sword fall into them.
9
Desolations age-during I make thee, And thy cities do not return, And ye have known that I [am] Jehovah.
10
Because of thy saying: The two nations and the two lands are mine, and we have possessed it, And Jehovah hath been there;
11
Therefore, I live — an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah, And I have done according to thine anger, And according to thine envy, With which thou hast wrought, Because of thy hatred against them, And I have been known among them when I judge thee.
12
And thou hast known that I — Jehovah, I have heard all thy despisings that thou hast spoken Against mountains of Israel, saying: A desolation, to us they were given for food.
13
And ye magnify yourselves against Me with your mouth, And have made abundant against Me your words, I — I have heard.
14
Thus said the Lord Jehovah: According to the rejoicing of the whole land, A desolation I make of thee.
15
According to thy joy at the inheritance of the house of Israel because of desolation, So I do to thee — a desolation thou art, O mount Seir, and all Edom — all of it, And they have known that I [am] Jehovah!
