1The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,2Son of man, set thy face against the Ammonites, and prophesy against them;3And say unto the Ammonites, Hear the word of the Lord GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou saidst, Aha, against my sanctuary, when it was profaned; and against the land of Israel, when it was desolate; and against the house of Judah, when they went into captivity;4Behold, therefore I will deliver thee to the men of the east for a possession, and they shall set their palaces in thee, and make their dwellings in thee: they shall eat thy fruit, and they shall drink thy milk.5And I will make Rabbah a stable for camels, and the Ammonites a couchingplace for flocks: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.6For thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast clapped thine hands, and stamped with the feet, and rejoiced in heart with all thy despite against the land of Israel;7Behold, therefore I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and will deliver thee for a spoil to the heathen; and I will cut thee off from the people, and I will cause thee to perish out of the countries: I will destroy thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.8Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Moab and Seir do say, Behold, the house of Judah is like unto all the heathen;9Therefore, behold, I will open the side of Moab from the cities, from his cities which are on his frontiers, the glory of the country, Bethjeshimoth, Baalmeon, and Kiriathaim,10Unto the men of the east with the Ammonites, and will give them in possession, that the Ammonites may not be remembered among the nations.11And I will execute judgments upon Moab; and they shall know that I am the LORD.12Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Edom hath dealt against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended, and revenged himself upon them;13Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword.14And I will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people Israel: and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and according to my fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith the Lord GOD.15Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the Philistines have dealt by revenge, and have taken vengeance with a despiteful heart, to destroy it for the old hatred;16Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will stretch out mine hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethims, and destroy the remnant of the sea coast.17And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.

Prophecy Against Ammon
1The word of the Lord came to me:2“Son of man, set your face toward the Ammonites and prophesy against them. (Jer 49:1; Eze 2:1; Eze 6:2; Eze 21:20; Eze 21:28)3Say to the Ammonites, Hear the word of the Lord God: Thus says the Lord God, Because you said, ‘Aha!’ over my sanctuary when it was profaned, and over the land of Israel when it was made desolate, and over the house of Judah when they went into exile, (Eze 2:4; Eze 3:11; Eze 3:27; Eze 7:22; Eze 26:2; Eze 36:2)4therefore behold, I am handing you over to the people of the East for a possession, and they shall set their encampments among you and make their dwellings in your midst. They shall eat your fruit, and they shall drink your milk. (Jud 6:3)5I will make Rabbah a pasture for camels and Ammon a fold for flocks. Then you will know that I am the Lord. (2Sa 11:1; 2Sa 12:26; Eze 21:20; Eze 24:27; Zep 2:15)6For thus says the Lord God: Because you have clapped your hands and stamped your feet and rejoiced with all the malice within your soul against the land of Israel, (Ps 98:8; Isa 55:12; Eze 6:11; Eze 25:15; Eze 36:5; Zep 2:8; Zep 2:10)7therefore, behold, I have stretched out my hand against you, and will hand you over as plunder to the nations. And I will cut you off from the peoples and will make you perish out of the countries; I will destroy you. Then you will know that I am the Lord. (Eze 6:14; Eze 7:21; Eze 25:4)

8“Thus says the Lord God: Because Moab and Seir said, ‘Behold, the house of Judah is like all the other nations,’ (Isa 15:1; Jer 25:17; Jer 48:1; Eze 25:12)9therefore I will lay open the flank of Moab from the cities, from its cities on its frontier, the glory of the country, Beth-jeshimoth, Baal-meon, and Kiriathaim. (Jos 12:3; 1Ch 5:8; Jer 48:1; Eze 25:8)10I will give it along with the Ammonites to the people of the East as a possession, that the Ammonites may be remembered no more among the nations, (Eze 21:32; Eze 25:2; Eze 25:4)11and I will execute judgments upon Moab. Then they will know that I am the Lord. (Eze 6:7; Eze 25:8)
