Ezekiel 25:“Son of man, set your face against the Ammonites, and prophesy against them.
Ezekiel 25:Say to the Ammonites, ‘Hear the word of the Lord God! Thus says the Lord God: “Because you said, ‘Aha!’ against My sanctuary when it was profaned, and against the land of Israel when it was desolate, and against the house of Judah when they went into captivity,
Ezekiel 25:indeed, therefore, I will deliver you as a possession to the men of the East (Lit. sons), and they shall set their encampments among you and make their dwellings among you; they shall eat your fruit, and they shall drink your milk.
Ezekiel 25:And I will make Rabbah a stable for camels and Ammon a resting place for flocks. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.”
Ezekiel 25:‘For thus says the Lord God: “Because you clapped your hands, stamped your feet, and rejoiced in heart with all your disdain for the land of Israel,
Ezekiel 25:indeed, therefore, I will stretch out My hand against you, and give you as plunder to the nations; I will cut you off from the peoples, and I will cause you to perish from the countries; I will destroy you, and you shall know that I am the Lord.”

Proclamation Against Moab

Ezekiel 25:‘Thus says the Lord God: “Because Moab and Seir say, ‘Look! The house of Judah is like all the nations,’
