Obadiah 1:1 The vision of Obadiah. Thus saith the Lord GOD  concerning Edom; We have heard a rumour from the  LORD, and an ambassador is sent among the heathen, Arise  ye, and let us rise up against her in battle. 

Obadiah 1:2 Behold, I  have made thee small among the heathen: thou art greatly  despised.  
Obadiah 1:3 The pride of thine 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? 

Obadiah 1:4 Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and  though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring  thee down, saith the LORD. 

Obadiah 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? 

Obadiah 1:6 How are  the things of Esau searched out! how are his hidden  things sought up! 

Obadiah 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 none understanding in him. 

Obadiah 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?  

Obadiah 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.  

Obadiah 1:10 For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame  shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever. 

Obadiah 1:11 In  the day that thou stoodest 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. 

Obadiah 1:12 But thou shouldest not  have looked on the day of thy brother in the day that he  became a stranger; neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over  the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither  shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress.  

Obadiah 1:13 Thou shouldest not have entered into the gate of my  people in the day of their calamity; yea, thou shouldest 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; 

Obadiah 1:14 Neither shouldest thou have stood in the  crossway, to cut off those of his that did escape; neither  shouldest thou have delivered up those of his that did  remain in the day of distress. 

Obadiah 1:15 For the day of the  LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it  shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine  own head. 

Obadiah 1:16 For as ye have drunk upon my holy  mountain, so shall all the heathen drink continually, yea,  they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they  shall be as though they had not been.  

Obadiah 1:17 But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and  there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess  their possessions. 

Obadiah 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. 

Obadiah 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. 

Obadiah 1:20 And the captivity of this host of the  children of Israel shall possess that of the Canaanites,  even unto Zarephath; and the captivity of Jerusalem,  which is in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south.   

Obadiah 1:21 And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge  the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S.
