1:1 Obadiah’s vision:
This is what the Lord GOD has to say about Edom.
We have heard a report from the LORD,
and a messenger has been dispatched among the nations to say
“Get up! Let us rise up against her to fight!”
God’s Announcement to Edom
2 “Look! I will make you insignificant among the nations;
you will be utterly despised.
3 The arrogance in your heart has deceived you,
who inhabit hidden places on rocky cliffs,
whose dwelling is in the heights,
who say continuously to yourself,
‘Who will bring me down to the ground?’
4 Though you soar high like the eagle
and make your nest among the stars,
I will bring you down even from there,”
declares the LORD.
The Harvest from Edom’s Arrogance
5 “If thieves came against you,
if marauding gangs by night
—Oh, how you will be destroyed!—
Would they not steal only until they had enough?
If grape pickers came to you,
would they not leave some grapes to be gleaned?
6 “Oh, how Esau is ransacked,
how his hidden treasures are thoroughly searched out!
7 All your allies will force you out of the land,
your associates will deceive you and prevail against you.
Your friends will lay out a trap for you,
and you will never understand it!
8 “In that day,” declares the LORD,
“will I not destroy the wise from Edom,
and those with understanding from Esau’s Mountain?
9 Teman, our mighty soldiers will be dismayed,
so that every man from Esau’s Mountain will be slaughtered.”
