Obadiah 1


1:1 The vision of Obadiah. Thus saith the Lord GOD concerning
 Edom; We have heard a rumor from the LORD, and an embassador is
 sent among the heathen, Arise ye, and let us rise up against
 her in battle.
1:2 Behold, I have made thee small among the heathen: thou art
 greatly despised.
1:3 The pride of thy heart hath deceived thee, thou that
 dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation [is] high;
 that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?
1:4 Though thou shalt exalt [thyself] as the eagle, and though
 thou shalt set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring
 thee down, saith the LORD.
1:5 If thieves came to thee, if robbers by night, (how art thou
 cut off!) would they not have stolen till they had enough? if
 the grape-gatherers came to thee, would they not leave [some]
 grapes?
1:6 How are [the things] of Esau searched out! [how] are his
 hidden things sought!
1:7 All the men of thy confederacy have brought thee [even] to
 the border: the men that were at peace with thee have deceived
 thee, [and] prevailed against thee; [they that eat] thy bread
 have laid a wound under thee: [there is] no understanding in
 him.
1:8 Shall I not in that day, saith the LORD, even destroy the
 wise [men] out of Edom, and understanding out of the mount of
 Esau?
1:9 And thy mighty [men], O Teman, shall be dismayed, to the end
 that every one of the mount of Esau may be cut off by
 slaughter.
1:10 For [thy] violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall
 cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever.
1:11 In the day that thou stoodst on the other side, in the day
 that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and
 foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon
 Jerusalem, even thou [wast] as one of them.
1:12 But thou shouldst not have looked on the day of thy brother
 in the day that he became a stranger; neither shouldst thou
 have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their
 destruction; neither shouldst thou have spoken proudly in the
 day of distress.
1:13 Thou shouldst not have entered into the gate of my people
 in the day of their calamity; yes, thou shouldst not have
 looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor
 have laid [hands] on their substance in the day of their
 calamity;
1:14 Neither shouldst thou have stood in the cross-way, to cut
 off those of his that escaped; neither shouldst thou have
 delivered up those of his that remained in the day of distress.
1:15 For the day of the LORD [is] near upon all the heathen: as
 thou hast done, it shall be done to thee: thy reward shall
 return upon thy own head.
1:16 For as ye have drank upon my holy mountain, [so] shall all
 the heathen drink continually, yes, they shall drink, and they
 shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not
 been.
1:17 But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall
 be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their
 possessions.
1:18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of
 Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they
 shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be
 [any] remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken
 [it].
1:19 And [they of] the south shall possess the mount of Esau;
 and [they of] the plain the Philistines: and they shall possess
 the fields of Ephraim, and the fields of Samaria: and Benjamin
 [shall possess] Gilead.
1:20 And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel
 [shall possess] that of the Canaanites, [even] to Zarephath;
 and the captivity of Jerusalem, which [is] in Sepharad, shall
 possess the cities of the south.
1:21 And saviors shall come upon mount Zion to judge the mount
 of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD'S.
