while the whole world rejoices

Ezekiel 35:10-15 (JDV)

Ezekiel 35:10 ” ‘Because you said, “These two nations and two lands will be mine, and we will possess them” – though Yahveh was there –
Ezekiel 35:11 therefore, as I live – this is the declaration of the Lord Yahveh – I will treat you according to the anger and jealousy you showed in your hatred of them. I will make myself known among them when I judge you.
Ezekiel 35:12 Then you will know that I, Yahveh, have heard all the blasphemies you uttered against the mountains of Israel, saying, “They are desolate. They have been given to us to devour!”
Ezekiel 35:13 You boasted against me with your mouth and spoke many words against me. I heard it myself!
Ezekiel 35:14 ” ‘This is what the Lord Yahveh says: While the whole world rejoices, I will make you a sinister desolation.
Ezekiel 35:15 Just as you rejoiced over the inheritance of the house of Israel because it became a sinister desolation, I will deal the same way with you: you will become a desolation, Mount Seir, and so will all Edom in its entirety. Then they will know that I am Yahveh.’

while the whole world rejoices

The Edomites of Mount Seir dared to claim Israel and Judah as their own, assuming that God could not do anything about their attacks. But The LORD’s prophet told them that God would retaliate. Since they rejoiced over the destruction of God’s land, the whole world would be rejoicing when it was Edom’s turn.

As I write this (in March 2022), Russia is attacking Ukraine. The world waits for Russia to be treated as they are treating their neighbors.
