The desolation of Mount Seir (Ezek 35:7-35:9)

“I will make

Mount Seir

A waste.

I will make it

A desolation.

I will cut off

From it

All who come,

All who go.

I will fill

Its mountains

With the slain.

On your hills,

In your valleys,

In all your water streams,

Those killed

With the sword

Shall fall.

I will make you

A perpetual desolation.

Your cities

Shall never be inhabited.

Then you will know

That I am Yahweh.”

Yahweh, via Ezekiel, said that he was going to make Mount Seir a wasteland and a desolation. He was going to cut it off from all other countries, so that no one would be able to come or go into it. He was going to fill its mountains with all their fallen dead bodies, whether in the hills, in the valleys, or in the water streams. Mount Seir was going to become a perpetual desolation. Its cities would never be inhabited again. However, they would finally know that Yahweh was God.
