35 Again a message came from the Lord. He said:

“Son of dust, face toward Mount Seir and prophesy against the people saying, ‘The Lord God says: I am against you, and I will smash you with my fist and utterly destroy you. 4-5 Because you hate my people Israel, I will demolish your cities and make you desolate, and then you shall know I am the Lord. You butchered my people when they were helpless, when I had punished them for all their sins. As I live, the Lord God says, since you enjoy blood so much, I will give you a blood bath—your turn has come! I will utterly wipe out the people of Mount Seir, killing off all those who try to escape and all those who return. I will fill your mountains with the dead—your hills, your valleys, and your rivers will be filled with those the sword has killed. Never again will you revive. You will be abandoned forever; your cities will never be rebuilt. Then you shall know I am the Lord.

10 “‘For you said, “Both Israel and Judah shall be mine. We will take possession of them. What do we care that God is there!” 11 Therefore as I live, the Lord God says, I will pay back your angry deeds with mine—I will punish you for all your acts of envy and of hate. And I will honor my name in Israel by what I do to you. 12 And you shall know that I have heard each evil word you spoke against the Lord, saying, “His people are helpless; they are food for us to eat!” 13 Saying that, you boasted great words against the Lord. And I have heard them all!

14 “‘The whole world will rejoice when I make you desolate. 15 You rejoiced at Israel’s fearful fate. Now I will rejoice at yours! You will be wiped out, O people of Mount Seir and all who live in Edom! And then you will know I am the Lord!’
