Ezekiel 35

Ezekiel Chapter 35

The judgment of mount Seir for their hatred of Israel, and insulting over their distress.
1 Moreover 1the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, 1set thy face against 2mount Seir, and 3prophesy against it,
3 And say unto it, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O mount Seir, I am against thee, and I will stretch out mine hand against thee, and I will make thee amost desolate.
4 I will lay thy cities waste, and thou shalt be desolate, 1and thou shalt know that I am the Lord.
5 1Because thou hast had a aperpetual hatred, and hast bshed the blood of the children of Israel by the cforce of the sword in 2the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end:
6 1Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord God, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: sith thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.
7 Thus will I make mount Seir amost desolate, and cut off from it 1him that passeth out and him that returneth.
8 And 1I will fill his mountains with his slain men: in thy hills, and in thy valleys, and in all thy rivers, shall they fall that are slain with the sword.
9 1I 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, 1These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess it; awhereas the Lord was there:
11 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord God, 1I will even do according to thine anger, and according to thine envy which thou hast used out of thy hatred against them; and 2I will make myself known among them, when I have judged thee.
12 And 1thou shalt know that I am the Lord, and that 2I have heard all thy blasphemies which thou hast spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, They are laid desolate, they are given 3us ato consume.
13 Thus with your mouth ye have aboasted against me, and have multiplied your words against me: I have heard them.
14 Thus saith the Lord God; When 1the whole earth rejoiceth, 2I will make thee desolate.
15 As thou 1didst rejoice at 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 2they shall know that I am the Lord.
