Obadiah 1:1–1:14

1The vision of Obadiah. Thus says the Lord God concerning Edom: We have heard a report from the Lord, and a messenger has been sent among the nations: “Rise up! Let us rise against it for battle!” 2I will surely make you least among the nations; you shall be utterly despised. 3Your proud heart has deceived you, you that live in the clefts of the rock, whose dwelling is in the heights. You say in your heart, “Who will bring me down to the ground?” 4Though you soar aloft like the eagle, though your nest is set among the stars, from there I will bring you down, says the Lord. 5If thieves came to you, if plunderers by night—how you have been destroyed!— would they not steal only what they wanted? If grape-gatherers came to you, would they not leave gleanings? 6How Esau has been pillaged, his treasures searched out! 7All your allies have deceived you, they have driven you to the border; your confederates have prevailed against you; those who ate your bread have set a trap for you— there is no understanding of it. 8On that day, says the Lord, I will destroy the wise out of Edom, and understanding out of Mount Esau. 9Your warriors shall be shattered, O Teman, so that everyone from Mount Esau will be cut off.

10For the slaughter and violence done to your brother Jacob, shame shall cover you, and you shall be cut off forever. 11On the day that you stood aside, on the day that strangers carried off his wealth, and foreigners entered his gates and cast lots for Jerusalem, you too were like one of them. 12But you should not have gloated over your brother on the day of his misfortune; you should not have rejoiced over the people of Judah on the day of their ruin; you should not have boasted on the day of distress. 13You should not have entered the gate of my people on the day of their calamity; you should not have joined in the gloating over Judah’s disaster on the day of his calamity; you should not have looted his goods on the day of his calamity. 14You should not have stood at the crossings to cut off his fugitives; you should not have handed over his survivors on the day of distress.
