God's vengeance, for their insolency against the Jews, upon the Ammonites;

25:1 The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,

25:2 Son of man, set your face toward the children of Ammon, and prophesy against them:

25:3 and tell the children of Ammon, Hear the word of the Lord Yahweh: Thus says the Lord Yahweh, Because you said, Aha, against my sanctuary, when it was profaned; and against the land of Israel, when it was made desolate; and against the house of Judah, when they went into captivity:

25:4 therefore, behold, I will deliver you to the children of the east for a possession, and they shall set their encampments in you, and make their dwellings in you; they shall eat your fruit, and they shall drink your milk.

25:5 I will make Rabbah a stable for camels, and the children of Ammon a resting place for flocks: and you shall know that I am Yahweh.

25:6 For thus says the Lord Yahweh: Because you have clapped your hands, and stamped with the feet, and rejoiced with all the despite of your soul against the land of Israel;

25:7 therefore, behold, I have stretched out my hand on you, and will deliver you for a spoil to the nations; and I will cut you off from the peoples, and I will cause you to perish out of the countries: I will destroy you; and you shall know that I am Yahweh.

upon Moab and Seir;

25:8 Thus says the Lord Yahweh:

Because Moab and Seir say,
Behold, the house of Judah is like all the nations;

25:9 therefore, behold, I will open the side of Moab from the cities, from his cities which are on his frontiers, the glory of the country, Beth Jeshimoth, Baal Meon, and Kiriathaim,

25:10 to the children of the east, to go against the children of Ammon; and I will give them for a possession, that the children of Ammon may not be remembered among the nations.

25:11 and I will execute judgments on Moab; and they shall know that I am Yahweh.

upon Edom;

25:12 Thus says the Lord Yahweh:

Because Edom has dealt against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and has greatly offended, and revenged himself on them;

25:13 therefore thus says the Lord Yahweh, I will stretch out my hand on Edom, and will cut off man and animal from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman; even to Dedan shall they fall by the sword.

25:14 I will lay my vengeance on Edom by the hand of my people Israel; and they shall do in Edom according to my anger and according to my wrath; and they shall know my vengeance,

says the Lord Yahweh.

and upon the Philistines.

25:15 Thus says the Lord Yahweh:

Because the Philistines have dealt by revenge, and have taken vengeance with despite of soul to destroy with perpetual enmity;

25:16 therefore thus says the Lord Yahweh, Behold, I will stretch out my hand on the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethites, and destroy the remnant of the sea coast.

25:17 I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes; and they shall know that I am Yahweh, when I shall lay my vengeance on them.
