Ezekiel 25

1The word of the Lord came to me. He said, 2“Son of man, look toward the people of Ammon and speak against them for me. 3Say to the people of Ammon: 'Listen to the word of the Lord my Master! The Lord my Master says this: You were happy when my holy place was destroyed. You were against the land of Israel when it was polluted. You were against the family of Judah when the people were carried away as prisoners. 4So I will give you to the people from the east. They will get your land. Their armies will set up their camps in your country. They will live among you. They will eat your fruit and drink your milk. 5“'I will make the city Rabbah a pasture for camels and the country of Ammon a sheep pen. Then you will know that I am the Lord. 6The Lord says these things: You were happy that Jerusalem was destroyed. You clapped your hands and stamped your feet. You had fun insulting the land of Israel. 7So I will punish you. You will be like the valuable things soldiers take in war. You will lose your inheritance. You will die in faraway lands. I will destroy your country! Then you will know that I am the Lord.’” 8The Lord my Master says these things, “Moab and Seir ˻(Edom)˼ say, 'The family of Judah is just like any other nation.’ 9I will cut into Moab’s shoulder—I will take away its cities which are on its borders, the glory of the land, Beth Jeshimoth, Baal Meon, and Kiriathaim. 10Then I will give these cities to the people of the east. They will get your land. And I will let those people from the east destroy the people of Ammon. Then everyone will forget that the people of Ammon were a nation. 11So, I will punish Moab. Then they will know that I am the Lord.” 12The Lord my Master says these things, “The people of Edom turned against the family of Judah and tried to get even. The people of Edom are guilty.” 13So the Lord my Master says: “I will punish Edom. I will destroy the people and the animals in Edom. I will destroy the whole country of Edom, all the way from Teman to Dedan. The Edomites will be killed in battle. 14I will use my people Israel and get even against Edom. In this way, the people of Israel will show my anger against Edom. Then those people of Edom will know that I punished them.” The Lord my Master said these things. 15The Lord my Master says these things, “The Philistines tried to get even. They were very cruel. They let their anger burn inside them too long!” 16So the Lord my Master said, “I will punish the Philistines. Yes, I will destroy those people from Crete. I will completely destroy those people living on the sea coast. 17I will punish those people—I will get even. I will let my anger teach them a lesson. Then they will know that I am the Lord!”
