1 H2377 The vision H5662 of Obadiah. H136 This is what the Lord H3069 Yahweh H559 says H123 about Edom. H8085 We have heard H8052 news H3068 from Yahweh, H6735 and an ambassador H7971 is sent H1471 among the nations, H6965 saying, "Arise, H6965 and let's rise up H4421 against her in battle.
2 H5414 Behold, I have made H6996 you small H1471 among the nations. H3966 You are greatly H959 despised.
3 H2087 The pride H3820 of your heart H5377 has deceived H7931 you, you who dwell H2288 in the clefts H5553 of the rock, H3427 whose habitation H4791 is high, H559 who says H3820 in his heart, H3381 ‘Who will bring me down H776 to the ground?'
4 H1361 Though you mount on high H5404 as the eagle, H7064 and though your nest H7760 is set H3556 among the stars, H3381 I will bring you down H5002 from there," says H3068 Yahweh.
5 H1590 "If thieves H935 came H7703 to you, if robbers H3915 by night— H1820 oh, what disaster H1589 awaits you— wouldn't they only steal H1767 until they had enough? H1219 If grape pickers H935 came H7604 to you, wouldn't they leave H5955 some gleaning grapes?
7 H582 All the men H1285 of your alliance H7971 have brought H1366 you on your way, even to the border. H582 The men H7965 who were at peace H5377 with you have deceived H3201 you, and prevailed H3899 against you. Friends who eat your bread H7760 lay H4204 a snare H8394 under you. There is no understanding in him."
8 H3117 "Won't I in that day," H5002 says H3068 Yahweh, H6 "destroy H2450 the wise H123 men out of Edom, H8394 and understanding H2022 out of the mountain H6215 of Esau?
9 H1368 Your mighty H8487 men, Teman, H2865 will be dismayed, H376 to the end that everyone H3772 may be cut off H2022 from the mountain H6215 of Esau H6993 by slaughter.
10 H2555 For the violence H251 done to your brother H3290 Jacob, H955 shame H3680 will cover H3772 you, and you will be cut off H5769 forever.
11 H3117 In the day H5975 that you stood 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 for Jerusalem, H259 even you were like one of them.
12 H7200 But don't look H251 down on your brother H3117 in the day H5235 of his disaster, H8055 and don't rejoice H1121 over the children H3063 of Judah H3117 in the day H6 of their destruction. H6310 Don't speak H1431 proudly H3117 in the day H6869 of distress.
13 H935 Don't enter H8179 into the gate H5971 of my people H3117 in the day H343 of their calamity. H7200 Don't look H7451 down on their affliction H3117 in the day H343 of their calamity, H7971 neither seize H2428 their wealth H3117 on the day H343 of their calamity.
14 H5975 Don't stand H6563 in the crossroads H3772 to cut off H6412 those of his who escape. H5462 Don't deliver up H8300 those of his who remain H3117 in the day H6869 of distress.
15 H3117 For the day H3068 of Yahweh H7138 is near H1471 all the nations! H6213 As you have done, H6213 it will be done H1576 to you. Your deeds H7725 will return H7218 upon your own head.
16 H8354 For as you have drunk H6944 on my holy H2022 mountain, H1471 so will all the nations H8354 drink H8548 continually. H8354 Yes, they will drink, H3886 swallow down, H3808 and will be as though they had not been.
17 H2022 But in Mount H6726 Zion, H6413 there will be those who escape, H6944 and it will be holy. H1004 The house H3290 of Jacob H3423 will possess H4180 their possessions.
18 H1004 The house H3290 of Jacob H784 will be a fire, H1004 the house H3130 of Joseph H3852 a flame, H1004 and the house H6215 of Esau H7179 for stubble. H1814 They will burn H398 among them, and devour H8300 them. There will not be any remaining H1004 to the house H6215 of Esau." H3068 Indeed, Yahweh H1696 has spoken.
19 H5045 Those of the South H3423 will possess H2022 the mountain H6215 of Esau, H8219 and those of the lowland, H6430 the Philistines. H3423 They will possess H7704 the field H669 of Ephraim, H7704 and the field H8111 of Samaria. H1144 Benjamin H1568 will possess Gilead.
20 H1546 The captives H2426 of this army H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel, H3669 who are among the Canaanites, H6886 will possess even to Zarephath; H1546 and the captives H3389 of Jerusalem, H5614 who are in Sepharad, H3423 will possess H5892 the cities H5045 of the Negev.
