Ezequiel 35

1 Moreouer the worde of the Lorde came vnto me, saying,

2 Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir, and prophesy against it,

3 And say vnto it, Thus sayth the Lord God, Behold, O mount Seir, I come against thee, and I wil stretch out mine hand against thee, and I will make thee desolate and waste.

4 I wil lay thy cities waste, and thou shalt be desolate, & thou shalt knowe that I am the Lord.

5 Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed [the blood of] the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time [that their] iniquity [had] an end:

6 Therefore, [as] I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee to blood, and blood shall pursue thee: since thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.

7 Thus will I make mount Seir desolate and waste, and cut off from it him that passeth out & him that returneth.

8 And I will fill his mountaines with his slayne men: in thine hilles, and in thy valleys and in all thy riuers shal they fall, that are slayne with the sworde.

9 I will make thee perpetual desolations, and thy cities shall not return: and ye shall know that I [am] the LORD.

10 Because thou hast said, These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess it; though the LORD was there:

11 Therefore, [as] I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will even do according to thy anger, and according to thy envy which thou hast used out of thy hatred against them; and I will make myself known among them, when I have judged thee.

12 And thou shalt know, that I the Lord haue heard all thy blasphemies which thou hast spoken against the mountaines of Israel, saying, They lye waste, they are giuen vs to be deuoured.

13 Thus with your mouthes ye haue boasted against me, & haue multiplied your words against me: I haue heard them.

14 Thus sayth the Lorde God, So shall all the world reioyce when I shal make thee desolate.

15 As thou diddest reioyce at the inheritance of the house of Israel, because it was desolate, so will I doe vnto thee: thou shalt be desolate, O mount Seir, and all Idumea wholly, & they shall know, that I am the Lord.
