THE word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
Son of man, 1seta thy face against the 2Ammonites, and prophesy against them;
And say unto the Ammonites, Hear the word of the Lord GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou saidst, 3Aha, against my sanctuary, when it was 4profaned; and against the land of Israel, when it was desolate; and against the house of Judah, when they went into captivity;
Behold, therefore I will deliver thee 5to the men of the east for a possession, and they shall set their 6palaces in thee, and make their dwellings in thee: they shall eat thy fruit, and they shall drink thy milk.
And I will make 7Rabbah a 8stable for camels, and the 9Ammonites a 10couchingplaceb for flocks: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
For thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast 11clapped thine hands, and stamped with the feet, and rejoiced 12in heart with all thy 13despite against the land of Israel;
Behold, therefore I will 14stretch out mine hand upon thee, and will deliver thee for a spoil to the heathen; and I will cut thee off 15from the people, and I will cause thee to perish out of the countries: I will destroy thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.
¶Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that 16Moabc and 17Seir do say, Behold, the house of Judah is 18like unto all the heathen;
Therefore, behold, I will open the 19side of Moab from the cities, from his cities which are on his 20frontiers, the glory of the country, 21Beth-jeshimoth, Baal-meon, 22and Kiriathaim,
Unto the men of the 23east 24with the Ammonites, and will give them in 25possession, that the Ammonites may not be rememberedd among the nations.
And I will execute judgments upon Moab; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
¶Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that 26Edom hath dealt against the house of Judah by 27taking vengeance, and 28hath greatly offended, and revenged himself upon 29them;
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also 30stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from 31it; and I will make it desolate from 32Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword.
And I will 33lay my vengeance upon Edom 34by the hand of my people Israel: and they shall do 35in Edom according to mine anger and according to my fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith the Lord GOD.
¶Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the 36Philistines have dealt by revenge, and have 37taken 38vengeance with a 39despiteful heart, to destroy it for the 40old hatred;
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I 41will stretch out mine hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the 42Cherethims, and destroy the remnant of the 43sea coast.
And I will execute great vengeance upon them with 44furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall 45lay my vengeance upon them.
