Jeremiah 49:7–11

Judgment on Edom

Concerning Edom.

Is there no longer wisdom in Teman?

Has counsel perished from the prudent?

Has their wisdom vanished?

8 Flee, turn back, get down low,

inhabitants of Dedan!

For I will bring the calamity of Esau upon him,

the time when I punish him.

9 If grape-gatherers came to you,

would they not leave gleanings?

If thieves came by night,

even they would pillage only what they wanted.

10 But as for me, I have stripped Esau bare,

I have uncovered his hiding places,

and he is not able to conceal himself.

His offspring are destroyed, his kinsfolk

and his neighbors; and he is no more.

11 Leave your orphans, I will keep them alive;

and let your widows trust in me.
