1This word of the LORD came to me: 2‘O man, face towards the hill-country of Seir and prophesy against it. 3Say: These are the words of the Lord GOD:

Hill-country of Seir, I am against you: I shall stretch out my hand to strike you and reduce you to a desolate waste. 4I shall lay your towns in ruins and you will become a desolation. Then you will know that I am the LORD; 5for you have kept up an ancient feud and handed over the Israelites to the sword in the hour of their doom, the hour of their final punishment.

6‘Therefore, as I live, says the Lord GOD, I shall make blood your destiny, and it will pursue you; you are most surely guilty of a 35:6 are … guilty of: so Gk; Heb. most surely hate. blood, and it will pursue you. 7I shall make the hill-country of Seir a desolate waste and prevent anyone travelling to and fro in it; 8I shall cover your hills and valleys with the slain, and those slain by the sword will fall into your streams. 9I shall make you desolate for ever, and your cities will not be inhabited. Then you will know that I am the LORD.

10‘You say, “The two nations and the two countries will be mine and I shall take possession of them, though the LORD has been there.” 11Therefore, as I live, says the Lord GOD, your anger and jealousy will be repaid, for I shall do to you what you have done in your hatred towards them. I shall be known among you b 35:11 among you: so Gk; Heb. among them. by the way I judge you; 12you will know that I am the LORD. I have heard all your blasphemous talk about the mountains of Israel. You have said, “They are desolate and have been given to us to devour.” 13You have boasted against me and spoken wildly. I myself have heard you. 14The Lord GOD says: I shall make you so desolate that the whole world will gloat over you. 15I shall treat you as you treated Israel my own possession when you gloated over its desolation. Hill-country of Seir, the whole of Edom, you will be desolate. Then all will know that I am the LORD.
