1God's vengeance upon the Ammonites, 8upon Moab and Seir, 12upon Edom, 15and upon the Philistines, for their declared malevolence to the Jews.

1

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 the Ammonites, Hear the word of the Lord GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; cBecause thou saidst, Aha, 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;

Behold, therefore I will deliver thee to the 1men of the east for a possession, and they shall set their palaces in thee, and make their dwellings in thee: they shall eat thy fruit, and they shall drink thy milk.

5

And I will make eRabbah fa stable for camels, and the Ammonites a *couchingplace for flocks: and gye shall know that I am the LORD.

6

For thus saith the Lord GOD; hBecause thou hast clapped thine 2hands, and stamped with the 3feet, and irejoiced in 4heart with all thy *despite against the land of Israel;

7

Behold, therefore I jwill stretch out mine hand upon thee, and kwill deliver thee for 5a 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; land thou shalt know that I am the LORD.

12

¶Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Edom hath dealt against the house of Judah 8by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended, and revenged himself upon them;

13

vTherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from wTeman; and 9they of Dedan shall fall by the sword.

14

And I will lay my vengeance upon Edom xby the hand of my people Israel: and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and according to my fury; and they yshall know my vengeance, saith the Lord GOD.

15

¶Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the Philistines zhave dealt by revenge, and have taken vengeance with a *despiteful heart, to destroy 10it for the old hatred;

16

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; aBehold, I will stretch out mine hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the bCherethims, and destroy the remnant of the 11sea coast.

17

And I will execute great 12vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and cthey shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.
