1 Prophecy against mount Seir
1 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against Deut. 2:5mount Seir, and Amos 1:11prophesy against it,
4 I will lay thy cities waste, and thou shalt be desolate, and thou shalt know that I am the Lord.
5 ch. 25:12Because thou hast had a [b]perpetual hatred, and hast [c]shed the blood of the children of Israel by the [d]force of the sword in the time of their calamity, Ps. 137:7;Dan. 9:24in the time that their iniquity had an end:
6 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord God, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: Ps. 109:17sith thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.
8 And I 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 Jer. 49:17I will make thee perpetual desolations, and thy cities shall not return: ch. 36:11and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
11 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord God, I will even do Mat. 7:2;Jas. 2:13according to thine anger, and according to thine envy which thou hast used out of thy hatred against them; and I will make myself known amongst them, when I have judged thee.
12 Ps. 9:16And thou shalt know that I am the Lord, and that I have heard all thy blasphemies which thou hast spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, They are laid desolate, they are given us [g]to consume.
14 Thus saith the Lord God; Is. 65:13When the whole earth rejoiceth, I will make thee desolate.
15 Obad. 12,15As thou didst 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 they shall know that I am the Lord.
