25 The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, aset thy face bagainst the Ammonites, and prophesy against them; 3 And say unto bthe Ammonites, Hear the word of the Lord God; Thus saith the Lord God; Because thou saidst, cAha, against my sanctuary, when dit was profaned; and against the land of Israel, when it was desolate; and against the house of Judah, when they went into captivity; 4 Behold, therefore I will deliver thee to ethe †men of the east zfor a possession, and they shall set their fpalaces in thee, and make their dwellings in thee: they shall eat thy fruit, and they shall drink thy milk. 5 And I will make gRabbah ha stable for camels, and the Ammonites ia couchingplace for flocks: kand ye shall know that I am the Lord. 6 For thus saith the Lord God; Because thou hast lclapped thine †hands, and mstamped with the †feet, and nrejoiced in †heart with all thy odespite against the land of Israel; 7 Behold, therefore pI will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and will deliver thee qfor ||a spoil to the heathen; and I will cut thee off from the people, and I will cause thee to perish out of the countries: I will destroy thee; kand thou shalt know that I am the Lord.
8 Thus saith the Lord God; Because that rMoab and sSeir do say, ssBehold, the house of Judah is like unto all the heathen; 9 Therefore, behold, I will open the †tside of Moab from the cities, from his cities which are on his frontiers, uthe glory of the country, vBeth-jeshimoth, wBaal-meon, and xKiriathaim, 10 Unto the men of the east ||with the Ammonites, and will give them zin possession, that ythe Ammonites amay not be remembered among the nations. 11 And I will execute judgments upon Moab; kand they shall know that I am the Lord.
12 Thus saith the Lord God; bBecause that Edom hath dealt against the house of Judah †by taking vengeance, and chath greatly offended, and revenged himself upon them; 13 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; dI will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and ewill cut off man and beast from it; and eeI will make it desolate from fTeman; and ||they of gDedan shall fall by the sword. 14 And hI will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people Israel: and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and according to my fury; and ithey shall know my vengeance, saith the Lord God.
