1 H2377 The vision H5662 of Obadiah H559 [H8804] . Thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H123 concerning Edom H8085 [H8804] ; We have heard H8052 a rumour H3068 from the LORD H6735 , and an ambassador H7971 [H8795] is sent H1471 among the heathen H6965 [H8798] , Arise H6965 [H8799] ye, and let us rise up H4421 against her in battle.
2 H5414 [H8804] Behold, I have made H6996 thee small H1471 among the heathen H3966 : thou art greatly H959 [H8803] despised.
3 H2087 The pride H3820 of thy heart H5377 [H8689] hath deceived H7931 [H8802] thee, thou that dwellest H2288 in the clefts H5553 of the rock H3427 [H8800] , whose habitation H4791 is high H559 [H8802] ; that saith H3820 in his heart H3381 [H8686] , Who shall bring me down H776 to the ground?
4 H1361 [H8686] Though thou shalt exalt H5404 thyself as the eagle H7760 [H8800] , and though thou shalt set H7064 thy nest H3556 among the stars H3381 [H8686] , from there will I bring thee down H5002 [H8803] , saith H3068 the LORD.
5 H1590 If thieves H935 [H8804] came H7703 [H8802] to thee, if robbers H3915 by night H1820 [H8738] , (how art thou cut off H1589 [H8799] !) would they not have stolen H1767 till they had enough H1219 [H8802] ? if the grapegatherers H935 [H8804] came H7604 [H8686] to thee, would they not leave H5955 some grapes?
6 H6215 How are the things of Esau H2664 [H8738] searched out H4710 ! how are his hidden H1158 [H8738] things sought!
7 H582 All the men H1285 of thy confederacy H7971 [H8765] have brought H1366 thee even to the border H582 : the men H7965 that were at peace H5377 [H8689] with thee have deceived H3201 [H8804] thee, and prevailed H3899 against thee; they that eat thy bread H7760 [H8799] have laid H4204 a trap H8394 under thee: there is no understanding in him.
8 H3117 Shall I not in that day H5002 [H8803] , saith H3068 the LORD H6 [H8689] , even 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 [H8804] , shall be dismayed H376 , to the end that every one H2022 of the mount H6215 of Esau H3772 [H8735] may be cut off H6993 by slaughter.
10 H2555 For thy violence H251 against thy brother H3290 Jacob H955 shame H3680 [H8762] shall cover H3772 [H8738] thee, and thou shalt be cut off H5769 for ever.
11 H3117 In the day H5975 [H8800] that thou stoodest H3117 on the other side, in the day H2114 [H8801] that the strangers H7617 [H8800] carried away captive H2428 his forces H5237 , and foreigners H935 [H8804] entered H8179 into his gates H3032 [H8804] , and cast H1486 lots H3389 upon Jerusalem H259 , even thou wast as one of them.
12 H7200 [H8799] But thou shouldest not have looked H3117 on the day H251 of thy brother H3117 in the day H5235 that he became a stranger H8055 [H8799] ; neither shouldest thou have rejoiced H1121 over the children H3063 of Judah H3117 in the day H6 [H8800] of their destruction H6310 ; neither shouldest thou have spoken H1431 [H8686] proudly H3117 in the day H6869 of distress.
13 H935 [H8799] Thou shouldest not have entered H8179 into the gate H5971 of my people H3117 in the day H343 of their calamity H7200 [H8799] ; yea, thou shouldest not have looked H7451 on their affliction H3117 in the day H343 of their calamity H7971 [H8799] , nor have laid H2428 hands on their substance H3117 in the day H343 of their calamity;
14 H5975 [H8799] Neither shouldest thou have stood H6563 in the crossway H3772 [H8687] , to cut off H6412 those of his that escaped H5462 [H8686] ; neither shouldest thou have delivered up H8300 those of his that remained H3117 in the day H6869 of distress.
15 H3117 For the day H3068 of the LORD H7138 is near H1471 upon all the heathen H6213 [H8804] : as thou hast done H6213 [H8735] , it shall be done H1576 to thee: thy reward H7725 [H8799] shall return H7218 upon thy own head.
16 H8354 [H8804] For as ye drank H6944 upon my holy H2022 mountain H1471 , so shall all the heathen H8354 [H8799] drink H8548 continually H8354 [H8804] , yea, they shall drink H3886 [H8804] , and they shall swallow down H3808 , and they shall be as though they had not been.
17 H2022 But upon mount H6726 Zion H6413 shall be deliverance H6944 , and there shall be holiness H1004 ; and the house H3290 of Jacob H3423 [H8804] 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 [H8804] , and they shall kindle H398 [H8804] 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 [H8765] hath spoken it.
19 H5045 And they of the south H3423 [H8804] shall possess H2022 the mount H6215 of Esau H8219 ; and they of the plain H6430 the Philistines H3423 [H8804] : 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 captives H2426 of this host H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H3669 shall possess that of the Canaanites H6886 , even to Zarephath H1546 ; and the captives H3389 of Jerusalem H5614 , which is in Sepharad H3423 [H8799] , shall possess H5892 the cities H5045 of the south.
