Hath Israel no sons? hath he no heir?
And his people dwell in his cities?
And it shall be a desolate eheap,
And fher daughters shall be burned with fire:
Then shall gIsrael be heir unto them that were his heirs, saith the Lord.
Lament, and jrun to and fro by the hedges;
For ||their king shall go into captivity,
And khis priests and his princes together.
5 Behold, pI will bring a fear upon thee, saith the Lord God of hosts,
From all those that be about thee;
And ye shall be driven out every man right forth;
And qnone shall gather up him that wandereth.
6 And rafterward I will bring again the captivity of the children of Ammon, saith the Lord.
7 sConcerning Edom, thus saith the Lord of hosts;
vIs counsel perished from the prudent?
Is their wisdom vanished?
For I will bring the calamity of Esau upon him,
yThe time that I will visit him.
10 But bI have made Esau bare,
I have uncovered his secret places,
And he shall not be able to hide himself:
His seed is spoiled, and his brethren, and his neighbours, and che is not.
11 Leave thy fatherless children, I dwill preserve them alive;
And let thy widows trust in me.
Behold, they whose judgment was enot to drink of the cup have assuredly drunken;
And fart thou he that shall altogether go unpunished?
Thou shalt not go unpunished, but thou shalt surely drink of it.
13 For gI have sworn by myself, saith the Lord,
And all the cities thereof shall be mperpetual wastes.
And an ambassador is sent unto the heathen, oosaying,
Gather ye together,
And come against her, and rise up to the battle.
And despised among men.
That holdest the height of the hill:
sI will bring thee down from thence, saith the Lord.
vEvery one that goeth by it shall be astonished,
xNeither shall a son of man dwell in it.
Against the habitation of the strong:
But I will suddenly make him run away from her:
And who is a chosen man, that I may appoint over her?
That he hath taken against Edom;
And his purposes, that he hath purposed against the inhabitants of eeTeman:
Surely the least of the flock shall draw them out:
Surely he shall make their habitations desolate with them.
21 fThe earth is moved at the noise of their fall,
At the cry the noise thereof was heard in the †Red sea.
And at that day ishall the heart of the mighty men of Edom
iBe as the heart of a woman in her pangs.
For they have heard evil tidings: they are †fainthearted;
And fear hath seized on her:
sThe city of my joy!
26 uTherefore her young men shall fall in her streets,
Saith the Lord of hosts.
And spoil bthe men of the east.
And all their vessels, and ftheir camels;
And they shall cry unto them, gFear is on every side.
Saith the Lord;
For Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon hath taken counsel against you,
And hath conceived a purpose against you.
iThat dwelleth without care, saith the Lord,
And the multitude of their cattle a spoil:
And I will bring their calamity from all sides thereof, saith the Lord.
33 And Hazor shall be ma dwelling for dragons,
And na desolation for ever:
oThere shall no man abide there,
oNor any son of man dwell in it.
Behold, I will break qthe bow of Elam,
The chief of their might.
From the four quarters of heaven,
And lwill scatter them toward all those winds;
And there shall be no nation
Whither rthe outcasts of Elam shall not come.
37 For I will scause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies,
And before them that seek their life:
And I will bring evil upon them,
Even tmy fierce anger, saith the Lord;
And uI will send the sword after them,
Till I have consumed them:
38 And vI will set my throne in Elam,
And will destroy from thence the king and the princes,
Saith the Lord.
wThat I will bring again the captivity of Elam,
Saith the Lord.
