18 The house of Jacob shall be a fire,
    the house of Joseph a flame,
    and the house of Esau stubble;
they shall burn them and consume them,
    and there shall be no survivor of the house of Esau;
for the Lord has spoken.
19 Those of the Negeb shall possess Mount Esau,
    and those of the Shephelah the land of the Philistines;
they shall possess the land of Ephraim and the land of Samaria,
    and Benjamin shall possess Gilead.
20 The exiles of the Israelites who are in Halah[a]
    shall possess[b] Phoenicia as far as Zarephath;
and the exiles of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad
    shall possess the towns of the Negeb.
