Prophecy Against Mount Seir

1Moreover, the word of Yahweh came to me saying, 2“Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir and prophesy against it 3and say to it, ‘Thus says Lord Yahweh,

“Behold, I am against you, Mount Seir,

And I will stretch out My hand against you

And make you a desolation and a desecration.

4I will lay waste your cities,

And you will become a desolation.

Then you will know that I am Yahweh.

5Because you have had everlasting enmity and have [†]delivered the sons of Israel to the power of the sword at the time of their disaster, at the time of the [†]punishment of the end, 6therefore as I live,” declares Lord Yahweh, “I will [†]prepare you for bloodshed, and bloodshed will pursue you; you surely have not hated bloodshed, so bloodshed will pursue you. 7I will make Mount Seir a waste and a desolation, and I will cut off from it the one who passes through and returns. 8I will fill its mountains with its slain; on your hills and in your valleys and in all your ravines those slain by the sword will [†]fall. 9I will make you an everlasting desolation, and your cities will not be inhabited. Then you will know that I am Yahweh.

10“Because you have said, ‘These two nations and these two lands will be mine, and we will possess [†]them,’ although Yahweh was there, 11therefore as I live,” declares Lord Yahweh, “I will deal with you according to your anger and according to your jealousy which you dealt with them because of your hatred against them; so I will make Myself known among them when I judge you. 12Then you will know [†]that I, Yahweh, have heard all your [†]contempt which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel saying, ‘They are laid desolate; they are given to us for food.’ 13And you have magnified yourselves with your mouth against Me and have multiplied your words against Me; I have heard it.” 14Thus says Lord Yahweh, “As all the earth delights, I will make you a desolation. 15As you delighted over the inheritance of the house of Israel because it was desolate, so I will do to you. You will be a desolation, O Mount Seir, and all Edom, all of it. Then they will know that I am Yahweh.”’
