1 The Word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set your face against the Ammonites, and prophesy against them.
3 Say to the Ammonites, Hear the Word of the Lord Jehovah! Thus says the Lord
Jehovah: Because you said, Aha! against My sanctuary when it was profaned, and against
the land of Israel when it was desolate, and against the house of Judah when they went
4 behold, therefore, I will deliver you as a possession to the men of the East, and they
shall set their encampments among you and make their dwellings among you; they shall
eat your fruit, and they shall drink your milk.
5 And I will make Rabbah a stable for camels and Ammon a resting place for flocks.
And you shall know that I am Jehovah.
6 For thus says the Lord Jehovah: Because you clapped your hands, stamped your feet,
and rejoiced in heart with all your contempt for the land of Israel,
7 behold, therefore, I will stretch out My hand against you, and give you as plunder to
the nations; I will cut you off from the peoples, and I will cause you to perish from the
earth; I will destroy you, and you shall know that I am Jehovah.
8 Thus says the Lord Jehovah: Because Moab and Seir say, Behold, the house of Judah is like all the nations,
9 therefore, behold, I will clear the territory of Moab of cities, of the cities on its
borders, the glory of the land, Beth Jeshimoth, Baal Meon, and Kirjathaim.
10 To the men of the East I will give it as a possession, along with the Ammonites, that
the Ammonites may not be remembered among the nations.
11 And I will execute judgments upon Moab, and they shall know that I am Jehovah.
12 Thus says the Lord Jehovah: Because of what Edom did against the house of Judah by
taking vengeance, and has become very guilty from avenging itself on them,
13 therefore thus says the Lord Jehovah: I will also stretch out My hand against Edom,
cut off man and beast from it, and make it desolate. From Teman even to Dedan they
shall fall by the sword.
14 I will lay My vengeance on Edom by the hand of My people Israel, that they may do
in Edom according to My anger and according to My fury; and they shall know My
vengeance, declares the Lord Jehovah.
15 Thus says the Lord Jehovah: Because the Philistines dealt with vengeance and took
vengeance with spite in their heart, to destroy because of the old hatred,
16 therefore thus says the Lord Jehovah: I will stretch out My hand against the
Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethites and destroy the rest of the seacoast.
17 I will execute great vengeance on them with furious rebukes; and they shall know
that I am Jehovah, when I lay My vengeance upon them.
