Chapter 35

Prophecy against Mount Seir

1 Moreover, the word of the Lord came to me saying,

2 “Son of man, set your face against aMount Seir, and prophesy against it

3 and say to it, ‘Thus says the Lord 1God,

“Behold, I am against you, Mount Seir,

And I will astretch out My hand against you

And make you a bdesolation and a waste.

4 “I will alay waste your cities

And you will become a desolation.

Then you will know that I am the Lord.

5 “Because you have had everlasting aenmity and have 1delivered the sons of Israel to the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, at the time of the 2bpunishment of the end,

6 therefore as I live,” declares the Lord God, “I will 1give you over to abloodshed, and bloodshed will pursue you; since you have not hated bloodshed, therefore bloodshed will pursue you.

7 “I will make Mount Seir a waste and a desolation and I will cut off from it the one who passes through and returns.

8 “I will afill its mountains with its slain; on your hills and in your valleys and in all your ravines those slain by the sword will 1fall.

9 “I will make you an everlasting adesolation and your cities will not be inhabited. Then you will know that I am the Lord.

10 “Because you have asaid, ‘These two nations and these two lands will be mine, and we will possess 1them,’ although the bLord was there,

11 therefore as I live,” declares the Lord God, “I will deal with you aaccording to your anger and according to your envy which you showed because of your hatred against them; so I will bmake Myself known among them when I judge you.

12 “Then you will know 1that I, the Lord, have heard all your revilings which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel saying, ‘They are laid desolate; they are agiven to us for food.’

13 “And you have 1aspoken arrogantly against Me and have multiplied your words against Me; bI have heard it.

14 ‘Thus says the Lord God, “As all the aearth rejoices, I will make you a desolation.

15 “As you arejoiced over the inheritance of the house of Israel because it was desolate, bso I will do to you. You will be a cdesolation, O Mount Seir, and all Edom, all of it. Then they will know that I am the Lord.” ’
