1Moreover the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
2“Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir, and prophesy against it,
3and say to it, This is what the Lord Yahweh says: Behold, I am against you, O Mount Seir, and I will stretch out my hand against you, and I will make you desolate and a waste.
4I will lay your cities waste, and you will be desolate, and you will know that I am Yahweh.
5Because you have had a perpetual enmity, and have given over the children of Israel to the power of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time of the iniquity of the end,
6therefore, as I live, says the Lord Yahweh, I will prepare you for blood, and blood will pursue you; since you have not hated bloodshed, therefore blood will pursue you.
7So then, I will make Mount Seir an astonishment and a desolation, and I will cut off from it the one who passes through and the one who returns.
8I will fill its mountains with its slain. On your hills and in your valleys and in all your ravines they will fall who are slain with the sword.
9I will make you a perpetual desolation, and your cities will not be inhabited, and you will know that I am Yahweh.
10Because you have said, ‘These two nations and these two countries will be mine, and we will take possession of them—although Yahweh was there—
11therefore, as I live says the Lord Yahweh, I will do according to your anger, and according to your envy that you have shown out of your hatred against them, and I will make myself known among them when I judge you.
12You will know that I, Yahweh, have heard all your insults that you have spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, ‘They are laid desolate, they have been given us to devour.’
13You have magnified yourselves against me with your mouth and have multiplied your words against me; I heard it.
14This is what the Lord Yahweh says: When the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate.
15As you rejoiced over the inheritance of the house of Israel because it was desolate, so will I do to you; you will be desolate, Mount Seir, and all Edom, even all of it. Then they will know that I am Yahweh.”
