Judgment Upon Various Gentile Nations

3 So then thou shalt say to the sons of Ammon, Hear ye the word of my Lord Yahweh: Thus, saith My Lord. Yahweh: Because thou saidst Aha! Against my sanctuary when it was profaned. And against the so of Israel when it was laid waste, And against the house of Judah when they went into exile. 4 Therefore, behold me! delivering thee up to the Sons of the East for a possession And they shall set their encampments in thee, And place in thee their habitations, They, shall eat thy fruits, And they, shall drink thy milk; 5 And I will make of Rabbah a home for camels, And the sons of Ammon a couching-place for flocks, shall ye know that am Yahweh.
