Lord, remember ·what the Edomites did [L the sons of Edom] on the day ·Jerusalem fell [L of Jerusalem; Lam. 4:21; Ezek. 25:12–14; 35:5–15; Obad. 11–14]. They said, “Tear it down! Tear it down to its foundations!”
God, remember those Edomites, and remember the ruin of Jerusalem, That day they yelled out, “Wreck it, smash it to bits!” And you, Babylonians—ravagers! A reward to whoever gets back at you for all you’ve done to us; Yes, a reward to the one who grabs your babies and smashes their heads on the rocks!
Remember, Eternal One, how the Edomites, our brothers, the descendants of Esau,stood by and watched as Jerusalem fell. Gloating, they said, “Destroy it; tear it down to the ground,” when Jerusalem was being demolished.
Lord, have thou mind on the sons of Edom; for the day of Jerusalem. Which say, Extinguish ye, extinguish ye; till to the foundament therein. (Lord, remember what the Edomites did; on that day that Jerusalem fell. They said, Destroy ye it! destroy ye it! unto its foundations!)
