Ezekiel 25:1Ezekiel 26:21

1 Then the word of Jehovah came to me, saying,

2 Son of man, set your face against the children of Ammon and prophesy concerning them.

3 And you shall say to the children of Ammon, Hear the word of the Lord Jehovah: Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Because you said, Aha! against My sanctuary when it was desecrated, and against the land of Israel when it was desolated, and against the house of Judah when it went off into exile;

4 Therefore I am about to deliver you up to the children of the east to be dispossessed, and they will set up their encampments among you and put their dwellings among you. It is they who will eat your fruit and drink your milk.

5 And I will make Rabbah pasture land for camels and the cities of the children of Ammon folds for flocks, and you will know that I am Jehovah.

6 For thus says the Lord Jehovah, Because you have clapped your hands and stamped your feet and rejoiced with all the malice within you against the land of Israel,

7 Therefore now I have stretched out My hand against you, and I will deliver you as booty to the nations and cut you off from the peoples and destroy you from the lands; I will destroy you that you may know that I am Jehovah.

8 Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Because Moab has said, Look, the house of Judah is just like all the other nations!

9 Therefore I am about to open up the flank of Moab, taking cities from the cities on its frontier, the pride of the land, Beth-jeshimoth, Baal-meon, even to Kiriathaim.

10 I will also deliver it along with the children of Ammon to the children of the east to be dispossessed, so that the children of Ammon might not be remembered among the nations.

11 So I will execute judgments against Moab that they may know that I am Jehovah.

12 Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Because Edom has acted full of vengeance against the house of Judah and has incurred serious guilt by taking vengeance on them,

13 Therefore thus says the Lord Jehovah, I will also stretch out My hand against Edom and cut off from them man and beast and make it a desolation. From Teman even to Dedan they will fall by the sword.

14 And I will inflict My vengeance upon Edom by the hand of My people Israel, and they shall act in Edom according to My anger and My wrath. Then they will know My vengeance, declares the Lord Jehovah.

15 Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Because the Philistines have acted in vengeance and have been full of vengeance acting with malice within them to destroy with a perpetual enmity,

16 Therefore thus says the Lord Jehovah, I am about to stretch out My hand against the Philistines and cut off the Cherithites and destroy the remnant of the seashore.

17 And I will execute a great vengeance upon them with chastisements of wrath that they may know that I am Jehovah, when I have inflicted My vengeance on them.


CHAPTER 26

1 And in the eleventh year, on the first of the month, the word of Jehovah came to me, saying,

2 Son of man, because Tyre has spoken against Jerusalem, saying, Aha! She is broken, the gateway of the peoples! She has been turned over to me; I will be filled; now she has been desolated.

3 Therefore thus says the Lord Jehovah, I am now against you, O Tyre, and I will stir up many nations against you, just as the sea stirs up its waves.

4 And they will destroy the walls of Tyre and break down her towers. I will also scrape her dust from her and make her bare rock.

5 She will be a place in the midst of the sea where nets are spread, for I have spoken, declares the Lord Jehovah; and she will become spoil to the nations.

6 And her daughters who are in the field will be slain by the sword that they might know that I am Jehovah.

7 For thus says the Lord Jehovah, I am about to bring against Tyre from the north Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, the king of kings, with horses, chariots, horsemen, a company, and many people.

8 He will slay your daughters in the field by the sword, and he will lay a siege wall against you and cast up a mound against you and raise up a shield against you.

9 And he will set his battering rams against your walls, and with his axes he will break down your towers.

10 Because of the abundance of his horses, their dust will cover you; your walls will shake at the noise of the horsemen and wagons and chariots when he enters through your gates like those who enter a breached city.

11 With the hooves of his horses he will trample down all your streets; he will slay your people by the sword, and the pillars of your strength will topple to the ground.

12 And they will plunder your wealth and take your merchandise as spoil, and they will break down your walls and tear down your pleasant houses, and they will put your stones and your timber and your dust into the water.

13 And I will cause the noise of your songs to cease, and the sound of your harps will no longer be heard.

14 And I will make you bare rock. You will be a place where nets are spread; you shall no longer be built; for I, Jehovah, have spoken, declares the Lord Jehovah.

15 Thus says the Lord Jehovah to Tyre: How the coastlands will shake at the sound of your fall, when the wounded groan, when slaughter occurs in your midst!

16 Then all the princes of the sea will come down from their thrones and lay aside their robes and strip off their embroidered garments. They will clothe themselves with trembling; they will sit on the ground and tremble every moment and be astonished at you.

17 And they will take up a lamentation over you and say to you, How you have perished, O inhabited one, From the sea, O praised city, Which was strong by the sea, She and her inhabitants, Who imposed their terror on all her inhabitants!

18 Now the coastlands will tremble On the day of your fall; The coastlands which are by the sea Will indeed be troubled because of your departure.

19 For thus says the Lord Jehovah, When I make you a desolate city, like cities which are not inhabited, when I bring up the deep over you and the mighty waters cover you,

20 I will bring you down with those who descend into the pit, to the people of old, and I will make you dwell in the lower parts of the earth, like the ancient waste places, with those who go down to the pit, so you will not be inhabited, nor shine out glory in the land of the living.

21 I will make you a terror, and you will not exist. Although you will be sought after, you will never again be found, declares the Lord Jehovah.
