Isaiah 21:11-12

A message about Edom

11 This is a message about Dumah.

Someone is shouting to me from Seir. They are asking, ‘Guard, how soon will the night finish? Please tell me.’

21:11Dumah and Seir are other names for Edom.

12 The guard replies, ‘The morning will come soon. But the night will quickly follow. If you want to ask again, then come back. Come and ask!’
