Ezekiel 36:2-5 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

This is what the Lord God says: Because the enemy has said about you, “Aha! The ancient heights have become our possession,”’ therefore, prophesy and say: ‘This is what the Lord God says: Because they have made you desolate and have trampled you from every side, so that you became a possession for the rest of the nations and an object of people’s gossip and slander, therefore, mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord God. This is what the Lord God says to the mountains and hills, to the ravines and valleys, to the desolate ruins and abandoned cities, which have become plunder and a mockery to the rest of the nations all around.

“‘This is what the Lord God says: Certainly in my burning zeal I speak against the rest of the nations and all of Edom, who took[a] my land as their own possession with wholehearted rejoicing and utter contempt so that its pastureland became[b] plunder.
