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


THE word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,


Son of man, aset thy face bagainst the Ammonites, and prophesy against them;


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.


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.


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;


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.


¶Thus saith the Lord GOD; mBecause that Moab and nSeir do say, Behold, the house of Judah ois like unto all the heathen;


Therefore, behold, I will open the 6side of Moab from the cities, from his cities which are on his frontiers, the glory of the country, pBeth-jeshimoth, qBaal-meon, and rKiriathaim,


sUnto the men of the east 7with the Ammonites, and will give them in possession, that the Ammonites may not be remembered among the nations.

tAnd I will execute judgments upon Moab; and they ushall know that I am the LORD.


¶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;


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.


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.


¶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;


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.


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.
