CHAPTER 25

Against the Ammonites
25:1-7

1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, set thy face against the Ammonites, and prophesy against them;

The word of God came to me and said,

Son of man, prophesy against the Ammonites.

3 And 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;

Say to them,

This is what God says,

Because you said, "Aha" to my sanctuary when it was profaned, and to Israel and Judah,

4 Behold, 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.

I will deliver you to the people of the east,

who will destroy you.

5 And I will make Rabbah a stable for camels, and the Ammonites a couching place for flocks: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

And you'll know that I'm God.

6 For 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;

Because your clapped your hands and stamped your feet,

7 Behold, 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.

I'll stretch out my hand and deliver you to the heathen, and destroy you.

Then you'll know that I'm God.

Against Moab and Edom
24:8-14

8 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Moab and Seir do say, Behold, the house of Judah is like unto all the heathen;

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, Bethjeshimoth, Baalmeon, and Kiriathaim,

10 Unto the men of the east with the Ammonites, and will give them in possession, that the Ammonites may not be remembered among the nations.

This is what God says,

Because Moab and Seir say,

Judah is like the heathen,

11 And I will execute judgments upon Moab; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

I'll execute judgements on Moab,

And they'll know that I'm the Lord.

13 Therefore 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.

Therefore, this is what God says,

I'll stretch out my hand on Edom, [1]

and kill all of its people and animals

with the sword.

14 And 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.

I'll lay out my vengeance upon them

in my anger and fury.

And they'll know my vengeance.

Against the Philistines
24:15-17

15 Thus 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;

This is what God says,

Because the Philistines have taken vengeance,

16 Therefore 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.

I will stretch out my hand on them

17 And 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.

and take vengeance on them.

And they'll know I'm God,

when I take my vengeance on them.
