2 Chronicles 28:17
The Edomites had again come and attacked Judah and carried away prisoners,
Remember, LORD, what the Edomites did on the day Jerusalem fell. "Tear it down," they cried, "tear it down to its foundations!"
Blessings crown the head of the righteous, but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked.
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because Edom took revenge on Judah and became very guilty by doing so,
"'Because you harbored an ancient hostility and delivered the Israelites over to the sword at the time of their calamity, the time their punishment reached its climax,
