King James Bible
Chapter 1:21 Verses
Thus saith the Lord GOD concerning Edom;
We have heard a rumour from the LORD,
and an ambassador is sent among the heathen,
and let us rise up against her in battle.
I have made thee small among the heathen:
thou art greatly despised.
thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock,
whose habitation is high;
that saith in his heart,
Who shall bring me down to the ground?
and though thou set thy nest among the stars,
thence will I bring thee down,
saith the LORD.
if robbers by night,
(how art thou cut off!)
would they not have stolen till they had enough?
if the grapegatherers came to thee,
would they not leave some grapes?
how are his hidden things sought up!
the men that were at peace with thee have deceived thee,
and prevailed against thee;
they that eat thy bread have laid a wound under thee:
there is none understanding in him.
saith the LORD,
even destroy the wise men out of Edom,
and understanding out of the mount of Esau?
shall be dismayed,
to the end that every one of the mount of Esau may be cut off by slaughter.
and thou shalt be cut off for ever.
in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces,
and foreigners entered into his gates,
and cast lots upon Jerusalem,
even thou wast as one of them.
neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction;
neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress.
thou shouldest not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity,
nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity;
to cut off those of his that did escape;
neither shouldest thou have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress.
as thou hast done,
it shall be done unto thee:
thy reward shall return upon thine own head.
so shall all the heathen drink continually,
they shall drink,
and they shall swallow down,
and they shall be as though they had not been.
and there shall be holiness;
and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.
and the house of Joseph a flame,
and the house of Esau for stubble,
and they shall kindle in them,
and devour them;
and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau;
for the LORD hath spoken it.
and they of the plain the Philistines:
and they shall possess the fields of Ephraim,
and the fields of Samaria:
and Benjamin shall possess Gilead.
even unto Zarephath;
and the captivity of Jerusalem,
which is in Sepharad,
shall possess the cities of the south.
and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S.
