Ezequiel 35

1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

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

3 and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD: Behold, O mount Seir, I [am] against thee, and I will stretch out my hand against thee, and I will make thee waste and solitary.

4 I will lay thy cities waste, and thou shalt be desolate, and thou shalt know that I [am] the LORD.

5 Because thou hast had perpetual enmities and hast scattered the sons of Israel to the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the extremely evil time:

6 therefore, [as] I live, said the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: and if thou dost not hate blood, blood shall pursue thee.

7 And I will make mount Seir waste and solitary and cut off from him, he that passes out and him that returns.

8 And I will fill his mountains with his dead; and in thy hills and in thy valleys, and in all thy rivers, they shall fall that are slain with the sword.

9 I will make thee perpetual desolations, and thy cities shall never be restored; 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 them, whereas the LORD was there.

11 Therefore, [as] I live, said the Lord GOD, I will even do according to thine anger and according to thine envy which thou hast used out of thy enmity against them; and I shall be known in them when I judge thee.

12 And thou shalt know that I, the LORD, have heard all thy injuries which thou hast spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, They are laid desolate; they are given us to devour.

13 Thus with your mouth ye have boasted against me and have multiplied your words against me; I have heard [them].

14 Thus hath the Lord GOD said: Thus shall the whole earth rejoice [when] I shall make thee desolate.

15 As thou didst rejoice upon the inheritance of the house of Israel, because it was desolate, so will I do unto thee; thou shalt be desolate, O mount Seir, and all Idumea, [even] all of it: and they shall know that I [am] the LORD.:
