Edom's Violence Against Jacob

10 (A)Because of the violence done to your brother Jacob,
    shame shall cover you,
    (B)and you shall be cut off forever.
11 (C)On the day that you stood aloof,
    (D)on the day that strangers carried off his wealth
and foreigners entered his gates
    (E)and cast lots for Jerusalem,
    you were like one of them.
12 (F)But do not gloat over the day of your brother
    in the day of his misfortune;
(G)do not rejoice over the people of Judah
    in the day of their ruin;
(H)do not boast[a]
    in the day of distress.
13 (I)Do not enter the gate of my people
    in the day of their calamity;
(J)do not gloat over his disaster
    in the day of his calamity;
(K)do not loot his wealth
    in the day of his calamity.
14 (L)Do not stand at the crossroads
    to cut off his fugitives;
do not hand over his survivors
    in the day of distress.
