18 The house of Jacob will be a fire,
and the house of Joseph flame,
while the house of Esau will be straw—
they will set them on fire and consume them.

19 Then those of the Negev[a]
will possess the hill country of Esau,
and those of the foothills the Philistines.
Then they will possess the territory of Ephraim
and the territory of Samaria,
while Benjamin will possess Gilead.
20 The exiles of this army of Bnei-Yisrael

will possess the cities of the Negev.
