Obadiah 1:1 - 1:4

Edom Will Be Brought Down

The vision of Obadiah. Thus says Lord Yahweh concerning Edom—
We have heard a report from Yahweh,
And an envoy has been sent among the nations saying,
“Arise! And let us arise against her for battle”—
“Behold, I will make you small among the nations;
You are greatly despised.
The arrogance of your heart has deceived you,
You who dwell in the clefts of the cliff,
In the height of your habitation,
Who says in his heart,
‘Who will bring me down to earth?’
Though you build loftily like the eagle,
Though you set your nest among the stars,
From there I will bring you down,” declares Yahweh.
