5 Because thou hast had an age-abiding enmity, And hast delivered up the sons of Israel unto he hands of the sword,- In the time of their misfortune, In the time of the final punishment for iniquity,
5 "Because you have had everlasting enmity and have delivered the sons of Israel to the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, at the time of the punishment of the end,
5 Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end:
5 "Because of your undying hatred, you kept on making the Israelis experience abuse during the time of their calamity, even when they were in their final stages of punishment,
6 Therefore, as I live, Declareth My Lord. Yahweh, Surely regarding blood, will deal with thee, Blood therefore, shall pursue thee,-Since blood thou hast not hated, Therefore blood, shall pursue thee,
6 therefore as I live," declares the Lord GOD, "I will give you over to bloodshed, and bloodshed will pursue you; since you have not hated bloodshed, therefore bloodshed will pursue you.
6 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: sith thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.
6 therefore as I'm alive and living," declares the Lord GOD, "I'm turning you over to bloodshed, and bloodshed will certainly overtake you, since you never have hated shedding blood. That's why bloodshed will certainly pursue you.
7 So then I will deliver up Mount Seir to desolation after desolation,- And will cut off therefrom him that passeth by and him that returneth,
7 "I will make Mount Seir a waste and a desolation and I will cut off from it the one who passes through and returns.
7 Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it him that passeth out and him that returneth.
7 I'm turning Mount Seir over to ruin and desolation. I'm going to eliminate everyone who comes and goes,
8 And I will fill his mountains with his slain, - As for thy hills and thy hollows and all thy channels, they who are thrust through by the sword shall fall therein:
8 "I will fill its mountains with its slain; on your hills and in your valleys and in all your ravines those slain by the sword will fall.
8 And I will fill his mountains with his slain men: in thy hills, and in thy valleys, and in all thy rivers, shall they fall that are slain with the sword.
8 and I'll fill that mountain with the dead. Those who die by violence will cover your hills, and fill your valleys and all your ravines!

10 Because thou hast said, the two nations, and the two lands, mine, shall become, that we may possess it Whereas Yahweh, had been there,
10 "Because you have said, 'These two nations and these two lands will be mine, and we will possess them,' although the LORD was there,
10 Because thou hast said, These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess it; whereas the LORD was there:
10 "Because you have claimed, "These two nations and these two lands are going to belong to me, and we will take possession of them, even though the LORD is there,'
11 Therefore as I live, Declareth My Lord Yahweh, I will even deal according to thine anger, and according to thine envy, wherewith thou hast dealt, out of thy hatred with them,- So will I make myself known among them as soon as I shall judge thee
11 therefore as I live," declares the Lord GOD, "I will deal with you according to your anger and according to your envy which you showed because of your hatred against them; so I will make Myself known among them when I judge you.
11 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will even do according to thine anger, and according to thine envy which thou hast used out of thy hatred against them; and I will make myself known among them, when I have judged thee.
11 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(a) when I judge you.
11 therefore as I'm alive and living" declares the Lord GOD, "I'm going to deal with you as your anger deserves. When I judge you, I'll treat you like you did the Israelis that is, with the same kind of envy that motivated your constant hatred of them.
12 And their shalt know that I, Yahweh, have heard all thy reviling which thou hast uttered against the mountains of Israel saying, They have become desolate, - To us, have they been given for food;
12 "Then you will know that I, the LORD, have heard all your revilings which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel saying, 'They are laid desolate; they are given to us for food.'
12 And thou shalt know that I am the LORD, and that I have heard all thy blasphemies which thou hast spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, They are laid desolate, they are given us to consume.
12 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!’
12 That's how you'll know that I, the LORD, have heard every loathsome, reviling thing that you've had to say against the mountains of Israel, such as, "They're desolate, and we'll eat them for dinner!'
13 And so ye have magnified yourselves against me with your mouth, And have caused to abound against me your words, - I, have heard!
13 "And you have spoken arrogantly against Me and have multiplied your words against Me; I have heard it."
13 Thus with your mouth ye have boasted against me, and have multiplied your words against me: I have heard them.
13 Not only that, you've arrogantly reviled me many times over, and I've heard every word!
14 Thus, saith My Lord Yahweh, - When all the earth is rejoicing, la desolation will I make thee:
14 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "As all the earth rejoices, I will make you a desolation.
14 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When the whole earth rejoiceth, I will make thee desolate.
14 “This is what the Lord God says: While the whole world rejoices, I will make you a desolation.
14 "So this is what the Lord GOD says: "Just as the earth rejoices, I'm going to turn you into a desolate wasteland.
15 As thou didst rejoice over the inheritance of the house of Israel because it had become a desolation, so, will, I, do unto thee, - A desolation, shalt thou become, O Mount Seir And all Edom all of it, So shall they know that, I, am Yahweh.
15 "As you rejoiced over the inheritance of the house of Israel because it was desolate, so I will do to you You will be a desolation, O Mount Seir, and all Edom, all of it. Then they will know that I am the LORD."'
15 As thou didst rejoice at the inheritance of the house of Israel, because it was desolate, so will I do unto thee: thou shalt be desolate, O mount Seir, and all Idumea, even all of it: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
15 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.
15 Just as you rejoiced when Israel's inheritance became desolate, I'm going to do the same thing to you. Mount Seir, you and Edom all of you will become a desolate wasteland.' Then they will learn that I am the LORD."
