18 “Then the house of Jacob will be a (A)fire
And the house of Joseph a flame;
But the house of Esau will be as stubble.
And they will set [a]them on fire and consume [b]them,
So that there will be (B)no survivor of the house of Esau,”
For the Lord has spoken.
19 Then those of the [c]Negev will (C)possess the mountain of Esau,
And those of the [d]Shephelah the (D)Philistine plain;
Also, (E)possess the territory of Ephraim and the territory of Samaria,
And Benjamin will possess Gilead.
20 And the exiles of this host of the sons of Israel,
Who are among the Canaanites as far as (F)Zarephath,
And the exiles of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad
Will possess the (G)cities of the Negev.
