Ezekiel, CHAPTER 35
The word of the LORD came to me:
Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir and prophesy against it.
Say to it: Thus says the Lord GOD: Watch out! I am against you, Mount Seir. I will stretch out my hand against you and turn you into a desolate waste.
Your cities I will turn into ruins, and you shall be a desolation; then you shall know that I am the LORD.
Because you nursed a long-standing hatred and handed the Israelites over to the sword at the time of their collapse, at the time of their final punishment,
therefore, as I live―oracle of the Lord GOD―you are guilty of blood, and blood, I swear, shall pursue you.
I will make Mount Seir a desolate waste and cut off from it anyone who travels across it and back.
I will fill its mountains with the slain; those slain by the sword shall fall on your hills, into your valleys and all your ravines.
I will make you a desolation forever,
your cities will not be inhabited,
and you shall know that I am the LORD.
Because you said: The two nations and the two lands belong to me; let us take possession of them―although the LORD was there―
therefore, as I live―oracle of the Lord GOD―I will deal with you according to the anger and envy you dealt out to them in your hatred, and I will make myself known to them when I execute judgment on you,
then you shall know that I am the LORD.
I have heard all the insults you spoke against the mountains of Israel, saying: They are desolate; they have been given to us to devour.
You boasted against me with your mouths and used insolent words against me. I heard everything!
Thus says the Lord GOD: Because you rejoiced that the whole land was desolate, so I will do to you.
As you rejoiced over the devastation of the heritage of the house of Israel, the same I will do to you: you will become a ruin, Mount Seir, and the whole of Edom, all of it! Then they shall know that I am the LORD.
