1 H2377 The vision H5662 of Obadiah. H3541 Thus H559 said H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H123 concerning Edom; H8085 We have heard H8052 a rumor H3068 from the LORD, H6735 and an ambassador H7971 is sent H1471 among the heathen, H6965 Arise H6965 you, and let us rise H5921 up against H4421 her in battle.
2 H2009 Behold, H5414 I have made H6996 you small H1471 among the heathen: H3966 you are greatly H959 despised.
3 H2087 The pride H3820 of your heart H5377 has deceived H7931 you, you that dwell H2288 in the clefts H5553 of the rock, H3427 whose habitation H4791 is high; H559 that said H3820 in his heart, H4310 Who H3381 shall bring H3381 me down H776 to the ground?
4 H3588 Though H518 H1361 you exalt H5404 yourself as the eagle, H3588 and though H518 H7760 you set H7064 your nest H996 among H3556 the stars, H8033 there H3381 will I bring H3381 you down, H5002 said H3068 the LORD.
5 H518 If H1590 thieves H935 came H518 to you, if H7703 robbers H3915 by night, H349 (how H1820 are you cut H1589 off!) would they not have stolen H1767 till they had enough? H518 if H1219 the grape gatherers H935 came H7604 to you, would they not leave H6025 some grapes?
6 H349 How H6215 are the things of Esau H2664 searched H4710 out! how are his hidden H1156 things sought up!
7 H3605 All H582 the men H1285 of your confederacy H7971 have brought H1366 you even to the border: H582 the men H7965 that were at peace H5377 with you have deceived H3201 you, and prevailed H3899 against you; that they eat your bread H7760 have laid H4204 a wound H8478 under H369 you: there is none H8394 understanding in him.
8 H3117 Shall I not in that day, H5002 said H3068 the LORD, H6 even destroy H2450 the wise H123 men out of Edom, H8394 and understanding H2022 out of the mount H6215 of Esau?
9 H1368 And your mighty H8487 men, O Teman, H2865 shall be dismayed, H4616 to the end H376 that every H376 one H2022 of the mount H6215 of Esau H3772 may be cut H6993 off by slaughter.
10 H2555 For your violence H251 against your brother H3290 Jacob H955 shame H3680 shall cover H3772 you, and you shall be cut H5769 off for ever.
11 H3117 In the day H5975 that you stood H5048 on the other H5048 side, H3117 in the day H2114 that the strangers H7617 carried H7617 away captive H2428 his forces, H5237 and foreigners H935 entered H8179 into his gates, H3032 and cast H1486 lots H3389 on Jerusalem, H1571 even H259 you were as one of them.
12 H7200 But you should not have looked H3117 on the day H251 of your brother H3117 in the day H5235 that he became a stranger; H408 neither H8055 should you have rejoiced H1121 over the children H3063 of Judah H3117 in the day H6 of their destruction; H408 neither H6310 should you have spoken H1431 proudly H3117 in the day H6869 of distress.
13 H935 You should not have entered H8179 into the gate H5971 of my people H3117 in the day H343 of their calamity; H1571 yes, H7200 you should not have looked H7451 on their affliction H3117 in the day H343 of their calamity, H408 nor H7971 have laid H2428 hands on their substance H3117 in the day H343 of their calamity;
14 H408 Neither H5975 should you have stood H6563 in the crossway, H3772 to cut H6412 off those of his that did escape; H408 neither H5462 should you have delivered H8300 up those of his that did remain H3117 in the day H6869 of distress.
15 H3117 For the day H3068 of the LORD H7138 is near H3605 on all H1471 the heathen: H6213 as you have done, H6213 it shall be done H1576 to you: your reward H7725 shall return H7218 on your own head.
16 H8354 For as you have drunk H6944 on my holy H2022 mountain, H3605 so shall all H1471 the heathen H8354 drink H8548 continually, H8354 yes, they shall drink, H3886 and they shall swallow H1961 down, and they shall be as though they had not been.
17 H2022 But on mount H6726 Zion H6413 shall be deliverance, H6944 and there shall be holiness; H1004 and the house H3290 of Jacob H3423 shall possess H4180 their possessions.
18 H1004 And the house H3290 of Jacob H784 shall be a fire, H1004 and the house H3130 of Joseph H3852 a flame, H1004 and the house H6215 of Esau H7179 for stubble, H1814 and they shall kindle H398 in them, and devour H8300 them; and there shall not be any remaining H1004 of the house H6215 of Esau; H3068 for the LORD H1696 has spoken it.
19 H5045 And they of the south H3423 shall possess H2022 the mount H6215 of Esau; H8219 and they of the plain H6430 the Philistines: H3423 and they shall possess H7704 the fields H669 of Ephraim, H7704 and the fields H8111 of Samaria: H1144 and Benjamin H1568 shall possess Gilead.
20 H1546 And the captivity H2088 of this H2426 host H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H3669 shall possess that of the Canaanites, H6886 even to Zarephath; H1546 and the captivity H3389 of Jerusalem, H834 which H5614 is in Sepharad, H3423 shall possess H5892 the cities H5045 of the south.
