1The word of the Lord came to me: 2#See ch. 2:1 “Son of man, #See ch. 6:2 set your face toward #ch. 21:20, 28; See Jer. 49:1-6the Ammonites and prophesy against them. 3Say to the Ammonites, Hear the word of the Lord God: #ch. 2:4; 3:11, 27 Thus says the Lord God, Because you said, #ch. 26:2; 36:2 ‘Aha!’ over my #See ch. 7:22sanctuary when it was profaned, and over the land of Israel when it was made desolate, and over the house of Judah when they went into exile, 4therefore behold, I am handing you over to #Judg. 6:3the people of the East for a possession, and they shall set their encampments among you and make their dwellings in your midst. They shall eat your fruit, and they shall drink your milk. 5I will make #2 Sam. 11:1; 12:26; See ch. 21:20 Rabbah a #[Zeph. 2:15] pasture for camels and Ammon#25:5 Hebrew and the Ammonites #[Zeph. 2:15] a fold for flocks. #[See ch. 24:27 above]Then you will know that I am the Lord. 6For thus says the Lord God: Because #Ps. 98:8; Isa. 55:12 you have clapped your hands #[ch. 6:11] and stamped your feet and #[Zeph. 2:8, 10] rejoiced with all the #ver. 15; ch. 36:5malice within your soul against the land of Israel, 7therefore, behold, #See ch. 6:14 I have stretched out my hand against you, and #[ver. 4; ch. 7:21]will hand you over as plunder to the nations. And I will cut you off from the peoples and will make you perish out of the countries; I will destroy you. Then you will know that I am the Lord.
