Against Ammon. 1Thus the word of the LORD came to me: 2Son of man, turn toward the Ammonites and prophesy against them. 3 v Jer 40, 14; 41, 10: 49, 2; Am 1, 13ff: Zep 2, 8ff . Say to the Ammonites: Hear the word of the LORD! Thus says the Lord GOD: Because you cried out your joy over the desecration of my sanctuary, the devastation of the land of Israel, and the exile of the house of Judah, 4therefore I will deliver you into the possession of the Easterners.* They shall set up their encampments among you and pitch their tents; they shall eat your fruits and drink your milk. 5I will make Rabbah a pasture for camels, and the villages of the Ammonites a resting place for flocks. Thus you shall know that I am the LORD.

6For thus says the Lord GOD: Because you clapped your hands and stamped your feet, rejoicing most maliciously in your heart over the land of Israel, 7therefore I will stretch out my hand against you. I will make you plunder for the nations, I will cut you off from the peoples, and remove you from the lands. I will destroy you, and thus you shall know that I am the LORD.

Against Moab. 8 w Sir 50, 26; Is 15, 1–9; 16, 1–14; Jer 48, 1–47; Am 2, 1ff; Zep 2, 8f . Thus says the Lord GOD: Because Moab said, “See! the house of Judah is like all other nations,” 9therefore I will clear the shoulder of Moab* totally of its cities, the jewels of the land: Beth‐jesimoth, Baalmeon, and Kiriathaim. 10I will hand her over, along with the Ammonites, into the possession of the Easterners, that she may not be remembered among the peoples. 11Thus I will execute judgment upon Moab, that they may know that I am the LORD.

Against Edom. 12 x 12ff: Ez 35, 1ff; Is 34, 5; Jer 49, 7–22; Jl 4, 19; Am 1, 11f; Ob 1, 1–21 . Thus says the Lord GOD: Because Edom has taken vengeance on the house of Judah and has made itself grievously guilty by taking vengeance on them, 13therefore thus says the Lord GOD: I will stretch out my hand against Edom and cut off from it man and beast. I will make it a waste from Teman to Dedan; they shall fall by the sword. 14My vengeance upon Edom I will entrust to my people Israel, who will deal with Edom in accordance with my anger and my fury; thus they shall know my vengeance, says the Lord GOD.

Against the Philistines. 15Thus says the Lord GOD: Because the Philistines have acted revengefully, and have taken vengeance with destructive malice in their hearts, with an undying enmity, 16therefore thus says the Lord GOD: See! I am stretching out my hand against the Philistines; I will cut off the Cherethites* and wipe out the remnant on the seacoast. 17I will execute great acts of vengeance on them, punishing them furiously. Thus they shall know that I am the LORD, when I wreak my vengeance on them.
