Ezekiel 35:1-15 HCSB
 ... The word of the Lord came to me:  "Son of man, turn your face toward Mount Seir and prophesy against it.  Say to it: This is what the Lord GOD says: Look! I am against you, Mount Seir. I will stretch out My hand against you and make you a desolate waste.  I will turn your cities into ruins, and you will become a desolation. Then you will know that I am Yahweh.  "Because you maintained an ancient hatred and handed over the Israelites to the power of the sword in the time of their disaster, the time of final punishment,  therefore, as I live"-this is the declaration of the Lord GOD-"I will destine you for bloodshed, and it will pursue you. Since you did not hate bloodshed, it will pursue you.  I will make Mount Seir a desolate waste and will cut off from it those who come and go.  I will fill its mountains with the slain; those slain by the sword will fall on your hills, in your valleys, and in all your ravines.  I will make you a perpetual desolation; your cities will not be inhabited. Then you will know that I am Yahweh.  "Because you said, 'These two nations and two lands will be mine, and we will possess them'-though the LORD was there-  therefore, as I live"-the declaration of the Lord GOD-"I will treat you according to the anger and jealousy you showed in your hatred of them. I will make Myself known among them when I judge you.  Then you will know that I, Yahweh, have heard all the blasphemies you uttered against the mountains of Israel, saying, 'They are desolate. They have been given to us to devour!'  You boasted against Me with your mouth, and spoke many words against Me. I heard it Myself!  "This is what the Lord GOD says: While the whole world rejoices, I will make you a desolation.  Just as you rejoiced over the inheritance of the house of Israel because it became a desolation, so I will deal with you: you will become a desolation, Mount Seir, and so will all Edom in its entirety. Then they will know that I am Yahweh. ...
