The Lord has cast the lot for them, And His hand has divided and apportioned Edom to the wild beasts by measuring-line. They will possess it forever; From generation to generation they will dwell in it.
God has ·divided the land among [or cast the lot for] them, and he has ·given [measured to] them each their portion. So they will ·own [possess] that land forever and will live there ·year after year [from generation to generation].
And he is the one that has cast the lot for them, and his hand has apportioned it to them with the measuring line; they shall take possession of it forever, they shall live in it from generation to generation.
Get and read God’s book: None of this is going away, this breeding, brooding evil. God has personally commanded it all. His Spirit set it in motion. God has assigned them their place, decreed their fate in detail. This is permanent— generation after generation, the same old thing.
And he sent to them (the) heritage (And he gave them their inheritance), and his hand parted it in measure; till into without end they shall wield that land, in generation and into generation they shall dwell therein.
