1 H2377 The vision H5662 of Obadiah. H559 Thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 Jehovah H123 concerning Edom: H8085 We have heard H8052 tidings H3068 from Jehovah, H6735 and an ambassador H7971 is sent H1471 among the nations, H6965 saying, Arise H6965 ye, and let us rise up H4421 against her in battle.
2 H5414 Behold, I have made H6996 thee small H1471 among the nations: H3966 thou art greatly H959 despised.
3 H2087 The pride H3820 of thy heart H5377 hath deceived H7931 thee, O thou that dwellest H2288 in the clefts H5553 of the rock, H3427 whose habitation H4791 is high; H559 that saith H3820 in his heart, H3381 Who shall bring me down H776 to the ground?
4 H1361 Though thou mount on high H5404 as the eagle, H7064 and though thy nest H7760 be set H3556 among the stars, H3381 I will bring thee down H5002 from thence, saith H3068 Jehovah.
5 H1590 If thieves H935 came H7703 to thee, if robbers H3915 by night H1820 (how art thou cut off!), H1589 would they not steal H1767 only till they had enough? H1219 if grape-gatherers H935 came H7604 to thee, would they not leave H5955 some gleaning grapes?
6 H6215 How are the things of Esau H2664 searched! H4710 how are his hidden H2664 treasures sought out!
7 H582 All the men H1285 of thy confederacy H7971 have brought H1366 thee on thy way, even to the border: H582 the men H7965 that were at peace H5377 with thee have deceived H3201 thee, and prevailed H3899 against thee; they that eat thy bread H7760 lay H4204 a snare H8394 under thee: there is no understanding in him.
8 H3117 Shall I not in that day, H5002 saith H3068 Jehovah, H6 destroy H2450 the wise H123 men out of Edom, H8394 and understanding H2022 out of the mount H6215 of Esau?
9 H1368 And thy mighty H8487 men, O Teman, H2865 shall be dismayed, H376 to the end that every one H3772 may be cut off H2022 from the mount H6215 of Esau H6993 by slaughter.
10 H2555 For the violence H251 done to thy brother H3290 Jacob, H955 shame H3680 shall cover H3772 thee, and thou shalt be cut off H5769 for ever.
11 H3117 In the day H5975 that thou stoodest H3117 on the other side, in the day H2114 that strangers H7617 carried H2428 away his substance, H5237 and foreigners H935 entered H8179 into his gates, H3032 and cast H1486 lots H3389 upon Jerusalem, H259 even thou wast as one of them.
12 H7200 But look H3117 not thou on the day H251 of thy brother H3117 in the day H5235 of his disaster, H8055 and rejoice H1121 not over the children H3063 of Judah H3117 in the day H6 of their destruction; H6310 neither speak H1431 proudly H3117 in the day H6869 of distress.
13 H935 Enter H8179 not into the gate H5971 of my people H3117 in the day H343 of their calamity; H7200 yea, look H7451 not thou on their affliction H3117 in the day H343 of their calamity, H7971 neither lay H2428 ye hands on their substance H3117 in the day H343 of their calamity.
14 H5975 And stand H6563 thou not in the crossway, H3772 to cut off H6412 those of his that escape; H5462 and deliver not up H8300 those of his that remain H3117 in the day H6869 of distress.
15 H3117 For the day H3068 of Jehovah H7138 is near H1471 upon all the nations: H6213 as thou hast done, H6213 it shall be done H1576 unto thee; thy dealing H7725 shall return H7218 upon thine own head.
16 H8354 For as ye have drunk H6944 upon my holy H2022 mountain, H1471 so shall all the nations H8354 drink H8548 continually; H8354 yea, they shall drink, H3886 and swallow down, H3808 and shall be as though they had not been.
17 H2022 But in mount H6726 Zion H6413 there shall be those that escape, H6944 and it shall be holy; 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 burn H398 among them, and devour H8300 them; and there shall not be any remaining H1004 to the house H6215 of Esau; H3068 for Jehovah H1696 hath spoken it.
19 H5045 And they of the South H3423 shall possess H2022 the mount H6215 of Esau, H8219 and they of the lowland H6430 the Philistines; H3423 and they shall possess H7704 the field H669 of Ephraim, H7704 and the field H8111 of Samaria; H1144 and Benjamin H1568 shall possess Gilead.
20 H1546 And the captives H2426 of this host H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel, H3669 that are among the Canaanites, H6886 shall possess even unto Zarephath; H1546 and the captives H3389 of Jerusalem, H5614 that are in Sepharad, H3423 shall possess H5892 the cities H5045 of the South.
