God's vengeance, for their insolency against the Jews, upon the Ammonites,
Ezekiel 25:1 The worde of the Lorde came vnto me, saying: Ezekiel 25:2 Thou sonne of man, set thy face againste þe Ammonites, prophecy vpon them, Ezekiel 25:3 & say vnto the Ammonites: hear the worde of the Lorde God. Thus sayeth the Lorde God: For so muche as thou speakest ouer my Sanctuarye. A ha, I trow it be now suspended: and ouer the lande of Israel, I trowe it be nowe desolate: ye and ouer the house of Iuda, I trow they be now led away presoners: Ezekiel 25:4 Beholde, I will deliuer the to the people of the east, that they maye haue the in possession, these shal set their castels and houses in the. They shall eate thy frute, & drincke vp thy milcke. Ezekiel 25:5 As for Rabath. I will make of it a stall for camels, and of Ammon a shepefolde: & ye shal knowe, that I am the Lord. Ezekiel 25:6 For thus sayeth the lord God: In so much as thou hast clapped with thine handes, and stamped with thy fete, yea reioysed in thyne herte ouer the lande of Israell with despyte: Ezekiel 25:7 beholde, I will stretche out myne hand ouer the also, and delyuer the, to be spoyled of the Heathen, and rote the out from amonge the people, and cause the to be destroyed out of al landes: yea, I will make the be layed waste, that thou mayest know, that I am the Lorde.
upon Moab and Seir,
Ezekiel 25:8 Thus sayeth the Lorde God: For so much as Moab and Seir do say: As for the house of Iuda, it is but lyke as all other Gentyles be. Ezekiel 25:9 Therfore beholde, I will make the cytyes of Moab weapenlesse, and take awaye their strength: thir cyties and chefe coastes of their lande, whiche are the pleasures of the countrey. As namelye: Bethiesimoth, Baalmeon and Cariathaim: Ezekiel 25:10 these will I open vnto them of the East, that they maye fall vpon the Ammonites: and wil geue it them in possession, so that the Ammonites shall no more be had in remembraunce amonge the Heathen. Ezekiel 25:11 Euen thus will I punishe Moab also, that they may knowe, how that I am the Lorde.
Ezekiel 25:12 Moreouer, thus sayeth the Lorde God: Because that Edom hath auenged and eased him selfe vpon the house of Iuda, Ezekiel 25:13 therefore thus sayeth the Lorde: I wyll reache oute myne hande vpon Edom, and take awaye man and beast oute of it. From Theman vnto Dedan will I make it desolate, they shalbe slayne wt the swearde. Ezekiel 25:14 Thorowe my people of Israell will I auenge me agayne vpon Edom: they shall handle him, accordinge to my wrath & indignacion, so that they shall know my vengeaunce, sayeth the Lorde God.
and upon the Philistines.
Ezekiel 25:15 Thus sayeth the Lorde God: For so much as the Philistines haue done this, namely taken vengeaunce with despitefully stomackes and of an olde euyl will set them selues to destroye. Ezekiel 25:16 Therfore thus saith the Lorde God: Beholde: I will stretch oute mine hande ouer the Philistines, and destroye the destroyer, and cause all the remnaunt of the sea coaste to perishe. Ezekiel 25:17 A greate vengeaunce will I take vpon them, & punish them cruelly: that they maye knowe, how that I am the Lorde, which haue auenged me of them.
