Warriors from the city of Teman[a]
    will be terrified,
and you descendants of Esau[b]
    will be wiped out.

The Lord Condemns Edom’s Cruelty

10 You were cruel to your relatives,
    the descendants of Jacob.[c]
Now you will be destroyed,
    disgraced forever.
11 You stood there and watched
as foreigners entered Jerusalem
    and took what they wanted.
In fact, you were no better
    than those foreigners.
