Ezekiel 25:8-11

A Prophecy Against Moab

25:8 “This is what the sovereign Lord says: ‘Moab 1  and Seir say, “Look, the house of Judah is like all the other nations.” 25:9 So look, I am about to open up Moab’s flank, 2  eliminating the cities, 3  including its frontier cities, 4  the beauty of the land – Beth Jeshimoth, Baal Meon, and Kiriathaim. 25:10 I will hand it over, 5  along with the Ammonites, 6  to the tribes 7  of the east, so that the Ammonites will no longer be remembered among the nations. 25:11 I will execute judgments against Moab. Then they will know that I am the Lord.’”

1 sn Moab was located immediately south of Ammon.

2 tn Heb “shoulder.”

3 tn Heb “from the cities.” The verb “eliminating” has been added in the translation to reflect the privative use of the preposition (see BDB 583 s.v. מִן 7.b).

4 tn Heb “from its cities, from its end.”

5 tn Heb “I will give it for a possession.”

6 tn Heb “the sons of Ammon” (twice in this verse).

7 tn Heb “the sons.”
