Obadiah 1:1-14

Edom Will Be Humbled

1 The vision of Obadiah. Thus says the Lord aGOD concerning 1Edom - 2We have heard a report from the LORD, And an 3envoy has been sent among the nations saying, "4Arise and let us go against her for battle "-
2 "Behold, I will make you 5small among the nations; You are greatly despised.
3 "The 6arrogance of your heart has deceived you, You who live in the clefts of bthe 7rock, In the loftiness of your dwelling place, Who say in your heart, '8Who will bring me down to earth?'
4 "Though you 9build high like the eagle, Though you set your nest among the 10stars, From there I will bring you down," declares the LORD.
5 "If 11thieves came to you, If crobbers by night - O how you will be ruined!- Would they not steal only duntil they had enough? If grape gatherers came to you, 12Would they not leave some gleanings?
6 "O how Esau will be 13ransacked, And his hidden treasures searched out!
7 "All the 14men eallied with you Will send you forth to the border, And the men at peace with you Will deceive you and overpower you. They who eat your 15bread Will set an ambush for you. (There is 16no understanding fin him.)
8 "Will I not on that day," declares the LORD, "17Destroy wise men from Edom And understanding from the mountain of Esau?
9 "Then your 18mighty men will be dismayed, O 19Teman, So that everyone may be 20cut off from the mountain of Esau by slaughter.
10 "Because of 21violence to your brother Jacob, gYou will be covered with shame, 22And you will be cut off forever.
11 "On the day that you 23stood aloof *, On the day that strangers carried off his wealth, And foreigners entered his gate And 24cast lots for Jerusalem - 25You too were as one of them.
12 "26Do not hgloat over your brother's day, The day of his misfortune. And 27do not rejoice over the sons of Judah In the day of their destruction; Yes, 28do not iboast * In the day of their distress.
13 "Do not enter the gate of My people In the 29day of their disaster. Yes, you, do not jgloat over their calamity In the day of their disaster. And do not 30loot their wealth In the day of their disaster.
14 "Do not 31stand at the fork of the road To cut down their fugitives; And do not imprison their survivors In the day of their distress.
