5 “If gthieves had come to you,

If robbers by night—

Oh, how you will be cut off!—

Would they not have stolen till they had enough?

If grape-gatherers had come to you,

hWould they not have left some gleanings?

6 “Oh, how Esau shall be searched out!

How his hidden treasures shall be sought after!

7 All the men in your confederacy

Shall force you to the border;

iThe men at peace with you

Shall deceive you and prevail against you.

Those who eat your bread shall lay a 1trap for you.

jNo 2one is aware of it.

8 “Will kI not in that day,” says the Lord,

“Even destroy the wise men from Edom,

And understanding from the mountains of Esau?

9 Then your lmighty men, O mTeman, shall be dismayed,

To the end that everyone from the mountains of Esau

May be cut off by slaughter.
