Obadiah 15-21


15 For the day of the Lord is near against all the nations.
As you have done, it shall be done to you;
   your deeds shall return on your own head.
16 For as you have drunk on my holy mountain,
   all the nations around you shall drink;
they shall drink and gulp down,*
   and shall be as though they had never been.

Israel’s Final Triumph


17 But on Mount Zion there shall be those that escape,
   and it shall be holy;
and the house of Jacob shall take possession of those who dispossessed them.
18 The house of Jacob shall be a fire,
   the house of Joseph a flame,
   and the house of Esau stubble;
they shall burn them and consume them,
   and there shall be no survivor of the house of Esau;

for the Lord has spoken.
19 Those of the Negeb shall possess Mount Esau,
   and those of the Shephelah the land of the Philistines;
they shall possess the land of Ephraim and the land of Samaria,
   and Benjamin shall possess Gilead.
20 The exiles of the Israelites who are in Halah*
   shall possess* Phoenicia as far as Zarephath;
and the exiles of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad
   shall possess the towns of the Negeb.
21 Those who have been saved* shall go up to Mount Zion
   to rule Mount Esau;
   and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s.
