The vision of Obadi'ah. Thus says the Lord GOD concerning Edom: We have heard tidings from the LORD, and a messenger has been sent among the nations: "Rise up! let us rise against her for battle!"
Behold, I will make you small among the nations, you shall be utterly despised.
The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rock, whose dwelling is high, who say in your heart, "Who will bring me down to the ground?"
Though you soar aloft like the eagle, though your nest is set among the stars, thence I will bring you down, says the LORD.
If thieves came to you, if plunderers by night--how you have been destroyed! --would they not steal only enough for themselves? If grape gatherers came to you, would they not leave gleanings?
How Esau has been pillaged, his treasures sought out!
