1The vision of Obadiah. Thus says the Lord GOD concerning Edom, We have heard a rumor
from the LORD and an ambassador has been sent among the gentiles, Arise and let us rise up against
her in battle. 2Behold, I have made you small among the gentiles, you are greatly despised. 3The
pride of your heart has deceived you, you who dwells in the clefts of the rock (Sela-Petra), whose habitation is
high, who says in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground? 4Though you exalt yourself as the eagle and though you set your nest among the stars, there I will bring you down, says the LORD. 5If thieves came to you, if robbers by night, (how are you cut off!) would they not have stolen till they had enough? if the grape gatherers came to you, would they not leave some grapes? 6How are the things of Esau searched out! how are his hidden things sought out! 7All the
men of your confederacy have brought you to the border. The men who were at peace with
you have deceived you and prevailed against you, those who eat your bread have laid a wound on you. There is no understanding in him. 8Shall I not destroy the wise men out of Edom and understanding out of the mount of Esau in that day, says the LORD? 9O Teman, your mighty men shall be dismayed, to the end that every one of the mount of Esau may be cut off by slaughter.
10 Shame shall cover you for your violence against your brother Jacob and you shall be cut
off for ever. 11In the day that you stood on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried
away his forces captive and foreigners entered into his gates and cast lots on Jerusalem, you were
as one of them. 12But you should not have looked on the day of your brother in the day
that he became a stranger nor should you have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day
of their destruction nor should you have spoken proudly in the day of distress. 13You should
not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity. Yes, you should not have
looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity,
14Nor should you have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his
who escaped nor should you have delivered up those of his who remained in the day of
15For the day of the LORD is near on all the gentiles. As you have done, it shall be done to you, your reward shall return on your own head. 16For as you have drunk on my holy
mountain so shall all the gentiles drink continually, yes, they shall drink and they shall swallow down and they shall be as though they had not been.
17But deliverance shall be on mount Zion and there shall be holiness and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. 18And the house of Jacob shall be a fire and the house of Joseph a flame but the house of Esau for stubble and they shall kindle in them and devour them and
there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau for the LORD has spoken. 19And those from the south shall possess the mount of Esau and those from the plain the Philistines and they shall
possess the fields of Ephraim and the fields of Samaria and Benjamin shall possess Gilead.
20And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel shall possess that of the Canaanites, to Zarephath and the captivity of Jerusalem, which is in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south. 21And saviors shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau and the kingdom shall be the LORD'S.
