The vision of Obadiah.

1.    Thus says the Lord GOD concerning Edom; We have heard a rumor from the LORD, and an ambassador is sent among the nations, “Arise you, and let us rise up against her in battle.”

2.    Behold, I have made you small among the nations: you are greatly despised.

3.    The pride of your heart has deceived you, you that dwell in the cleft of the rock, whose habitation is high; that says in his heart, “Who shall bring me down to the ground?”

4.    Thou you exalt yourself as the eagle, and though you set your nest among the stars, from there will I bring you down, says the LORD

5.    If thieves came to thee, if robbers by night, (how are you cut off!) would they not have stolen till they had enough?  If the grape gatherers came to you; would they not leave some grapes?

6.    How are the things of Esau searched out!  How are his hidden things sought up!

7.    All the men of your confederacy have brought you even to the border:  the men that were at peace with you have deceived you, and prevailed against you; they that eat your bread have laid a wound under thee: there is none understanding in him.

8.    Shall I not in that day, says the LORD, even destroy the wise men out of Edom, and understanding out of the mount of Esau?

9.    And your mighty men, O Te’man, shall be dismayed, to the end that everyone of the mount Esau may be cut off by slaughter.

10.     For your violence against your brother Jacob shame shall cover you, and you shall be cut off for ever.

11.     In the day that you stood on the other side, in the day that strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered     into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even you were as one of them.

12.     But you should not have looked on the day of your brother in the day he became a stranger; neither should you have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither should you have spoken proudly in the day of distress.

13.    You should not have entered in the gate of my people in the day of their calamity; yes, you should not have looked on their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity.

14.     Neither should you have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his that did escape; neither should have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress.

15.    For the day of the LORD is near upon all the nations: as you have done, it shall be done to you:  your reward shall return upon your own head.

16.     For as you have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the nations drink continually, yes, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.

17.     But upon the mount of Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall posses their passions.

18.     And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them; and there shall not be any remaining in the house of Esau; for the LORD has spoken it.

19.     And they of the south shall posses the mount of Esau; and they of the plain of the Philistines: and they shall possess the fields of Ephraim, and the fields of Samaria: and Benjamin shall posses Gilead.

20.     And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel shall posses     that of the Canaanites, even to Zarepath; and the captivity of Jerusalem, which is in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south.

21.     And saviors shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’s.
