Petra The Edom City
2 The Lord says to Edom,“I will cut you down to size among the nations;you will be greatly despised.3 You have been deceived by your own pride because you live in a rock fortress and make your home high in the mountains. ‘Who can ever... reach us way up here?’ you ask boastfully.4 But even if you soar as high as eagles and build your nest among the stars,I will bring you crashing down,”says the Lord.
10 “Because of the violence you did to your close relatives in Israel,[a] you will be filled with shame and destroyed forever. 11 When they were invaded,you stood aloof, refusing to help them.Foreign invaders carried off their wealth and cast lots to divide up Jerusalem,but you acted like one of Israel’s enemies.
