Edom took advantage of Judah’s fall and poured out vengeance upon the Lord’s people. And the Lord saw it. And He would do something about it,

“Thus says the Lord GOD: Because of what Edom did against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and has greatly offended by avenging itself on them, therefore thus says the Lord GOD: I will also stretch out My hand against Edom, cut off man and beast from it, and make it desolate from Teman; Dedan shall fall by the sword. I will lay My vengeance on Edom by the hand of My people Israel, that they may do in Edom according to My anger and according to My fury; and they shall know My vengeance,” says the Lord GOD (Ezekiel 25.12–14). 

Edom carried out personal vengeance against Judah and God would use Judah to carry out His vengeance on Edom. They would reap as they had sown.

Questions:

  • What have you sown in life?
  • Can you see what you shall reap?
