Ezekiel 25 - 26

Proclamation against Ammon

25The word of the Lord came to me: 2Mortal, set your face towards the Ammonites and prophesy against them. 3Say to the Ammonites, Hear the word of the Lord God: Thus says the Lord God, Because you said, ‘Aha!’ over my sanctuary when it was profaned, and over the land of Israel when it was made desolate, and over the house of Judah when it went into exile; 4therefore I am handing you over to the people of the east for a possession. They shall set their encampments among you and pitch their tents in your midst; they shall eat your fruit, and they shall drink your milk. 5I will make Rabbah a pasture for camels and Ammon a fold for flocks. Then you shall know that I am the Lord. 6For thus says the Lord God: Because you have clapped your hands and stamped your feet and rejoiced with all the malice within you against the land of Israel, 7therefore I have stretched out my hand against you, and will hand you over as plunder to the nations. I will cut you off from the peoples and will make you perish out of the countries; I will destroy you. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.

Proclamation against Moab

Thus says the Lord God: Because Moab* said, The house of Judah is like all the other nations, 9therefore I will lay open the flank of Moab from the towns* on its frontier, the glory of the country, Beth-jeshimoth, Baal-meon, and Kiriathaim. 10I will give it along with Ammon to the people of the east as a possession. Thus Ammon shall be remembered no more among the nations, 11and I will execute judgements upon Moab. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.

Proclamation against Edom

12 Thus says the Lord God: Because Edom acted vengefully against the house of Judah and has grievously offended in taking vengeance upon them, 13therefore thus says the Lord God, I will stretch out my hand against Edom, and cut off from it humans and animals, and I will make it desolate; from Teman even to Dedan they shall fall by the sword. 14I will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people Israel; and they shall act in Edom according to my anger and according to my wrath; and they shall know my vengeance, says the Lord God.

Proclamation against Philistia

15 Thus says the Lord God: Because with unending hostilities the Philistines acted in vengeance, and with malice of heart took revenge in destruction; 16therefore thus says the Lord God, I will stretch out my hand against the Philistines, cut off the Cherethites, and destroy the rest of the sea coast. 17I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful punishments. Then they shall know that I am the Lord, when I lay my vengeance on them.

Proclamation against Tyre

26In the eleventh year, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me: 2Mortal, because Tyre said concerning Jerusalem,
‘Aha, broken is the gateway of the peoples;
   it has swung open to me;
I shall be replenished,
   now that it is wasted’,
3therefore, thus says the Lord God:
See, I am against you, O Tyre!
   I will hurl many nations against you,
   as the sea hurls its waves.
4 They shall destroy the walls of Tyre
   and break down its towers.
I will scrape its soil from it
   and make it a bare rock.
5 It shall become, in the midst of the sea,
   a place for spreading nets.
I have spoken, says the Lord God.
It shall become plunder for the nations,
6   and its daughter-towns in the country
   shall be killed by the sword.
Then they shall know that I am the Lord.

For thus says the Lord God: I will bring against Tyre from the north King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon, king of kings, together with horses, chariots, cavalry, and a great and powerful army.
8 Your daughter-towns in the country
   he shall put to the sword.
He shall set up a siege-wall against you,
   cast up a ramp against you,
   and raise a roof of shields against you.
9 He shall direct the shock of his battering-rams against your walls
   and break down your towers with his axes.
10 His horses shall be so many
   that their dust shall cover you.
At the noise of cavalry, wheels, and chariots
   your very walls shall shake,
when he enters your gates
   like those entering a breached city.
11 With the hoofs of his horses
   he shall trample all your streets.
He shall put your people to the sword,
   and your strong pillars shall fall to the ground.
12 They will plunder your riches
   and loot your merchandise;
they shall break down your walls
   and destroy your fine houses.
Your stones and timber and soil
   they shall cast into the water.
13 I will silence the music of your songs;
   the sound of your lyres shall be heard no more.
14 I will make you a bare rock;
   you shall be a place for spreading nets.
You shall never again be rebuilt,
   for I the Lord have spoken,
   says the Lord God.

15 Thus says the Lord God to Tyre: Shall not the coastlands shake at the sound of your fall, when the wounded groan, when slaughter goes on within you? 16Then all the princes of the sea shall step down from their thrones; they shall remove their robes and strip off their embroidered garments. They shall clothe themselves with trembling, and shall sit on the ground; they shall tremble every moment, and be appalled at you. 17And they shall raise a lamentation over you, and say to you:
How you have vanished* from the seas,
   O city renowned,
once mighty on the sea,
   you and your inhabitants,*
who imposed your* terror
   on all the mainland!*
18 Now the coastlands tremble
   on the day of your fall;
the coastlands by the sea
   are dismayed at your passing.

19 For thus says the Lord God: When I make you a city laid waste, like cities that are not inhabited, when I bring up the deep over you, and the great waters cover you, 20then I will thrust you down with those who descend into the Pit, to the people of long ago, and I will make you live in the world below, among primeval ruins, with those who go down to the Pit, so that you will not be inhabited or have a place* in the land of the living. 21I will bring you to a dreadful end, and you shall be no more; though sought for, you will never be found again, says the Lord God.
