Ezekiel 35:6  
therefore, as I live,” says the Lord Yahweh, “I will prepare you for blood, and blood will pursue you. Since you have not hated blood, therefore blood will pursue you.

I will fill its mountains with its slain. The slain with the sword will fall in your hills and in your valleys and in all your watercourses.

Ezekiel 35:11  
therefore, as I live,” says the Lord Yahweh, “I will do according to your anger, and according to your envy which you have shown out of your hatred against them; and I will make myself known among them when I judge you.

Ezekiel 35:12  
You will know that I, Yahweh, have heard all your insults which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, ‘They have been laid desolate. They have been given to us to devour.’

Ezekiel 35:13  
You have magnified yourselves against me with your mouth, and have multiplied your words against me. I have heard it.”

Ezekiel 35:14  
The Lord Yahweh says: “When the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate.

Ezekiel 35:15  
As you rejoiced over the inheritance of the house of Israel because it was desolate, so I will do to you. You will be desolate, Mount Seir, and all Edom, even all of it. Then they will know that I am Yahweh.’ ”
