Ezekiel 35

A prophecy against Edom

1The word of the Lord came to me: ‘Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir; prophesy against it and say: “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Mount Seir, and I will stretch out my hand against you and make you a desolate waste. I will turn your towns into ruins and you will be desolate. Then you will know that I am the Lord.

‘“Because you harboured an ancient hostility and delivered the Israelites over to the sword at the time of their calamity, the time their punishment reached its climax, therefore as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I will give you over to bloodshed and it will pursue you. Since you did not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you. I will make Mount Seir a desolate waste and cut off from it all who come and go. I will fill your mountains with the slain; those killed by the sword will fall on your hills and in your valleys and in all your ravines. I will make you desolate for ever; your towns will not be inhabited. Then you will know that I am the Lord.

10 ‘“Because you have said, ‘These two nations and countries will be ours and we will take possession of them,’ even though I the Lord was there, 11 therefore as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I will treat you in accordance with the anger and jealousy you showed in your hatred of them and I will make myself known among them when I judge you. 12 Then you will know that I the Lord have heard all the contemptible things you have said against the mountains of Israel. You said, ‘They have been laid waste and have been given over to us to devour.’ 13 You boasted against me and spoke against me without restraint, and I heard it. 14 This is what the Sovereign Lord says: while the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate. 15 Because you rejoiced when the inheritance of Israel became desolate, that is how I will treat you. You will be desolate, Mount Seir, you and all of Edom. Then they will know that I am the Lord.”’

以西结书 35


1耶和华对我说: “人子啊,你要面向西珥山,发预言斥责它, 告诉它,主耶和华这样说,‘西珥山啊,我要与你为敌,伸手攻击你,使你荒凉不堪。 我要使你的城邑沦为废墟,一片荒凉,这样你就知道我是耶和华。 因为你永怀仇恨,在以色列人遭遇危难、因罪恶受尽刑罚的时候,把他们交在刀下。 所以主耶和华说,我凭我的永恒起誓,你既然不憎恨杀人流血之事,杀人流血之事必临到你。 我要使西珥山荒凉不堪,消灭一切来往此地的人, 我要使丧身刀下的人遍布你的高山、丘陵、山谷和溪流。 我要使你永远荒废,你的城邑杳无人迹,这样你就知道我是耶和华。

10 “‘因为你曾说,犹大和以色列必归我,即使上帝在那里,我们也要吞并他们。 11 所以主耶和华说,我凭我的永恒起誓,你憎恨他们,满腹怒气和嫉妒,我也必这样对待你。我审判你的时候,以色列人就会认识我。 12 那时,你必知道我耶和华听见了你毁谤以色列山岭的一切话,你说,这些山岭荒废了,归我们所有了。 13 你妄自尊大,肆意毁谤我,我都听见了。 14 主耶和华这样说,普天下欢乐的时候,我要使你荒凉。 15 你既因以色列的荒凉而幸灾乐祸,我要让你遭受同样的下场。西珥山啊,你和以东都要荒凉。这样,你们就知道我是耶和华。’
