Edom Would Suffer

Edom did evil things and did not repent. Therefore, the Lord would not let them go unpunished, although He did not want this sad end for this nation that was related to His people, “For thus says the LORD: ‘Behold, those whose judgment was not to drink of the cup have assuredly drunk. And are you the one who will altogether go unpunished? You shall not go unpunished, but you shall surely drink of it. For I have sworn by Myself,’ says the LORD, ‘that Bozrah shall become a desolation, a reproach, a waste, and a curse. And all its cities shall be perpetual wastes'” (Jeremiah 49:12-13).
The Lord had to do what was right, for He is a God of justice, which meant that the once great nation would become as nothing. How sad.
May every nation on earth learn the lesson of Edom.
