Obadiah 1-3 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

The vision of Obadiah.

Edom’s Certain Judgment

This is what the Lord God has said about Edom:

We have heard a message from the Lord;
an envoy has been sent among the nations:
“Rise up, and let us go to war against her.”[a]
Look, I will make you insignificant
among the nations;
you will be deeply despised.
Your arrogant heart has deceived you,
you who live in clefts of the rock[b][c]
in your home on the heights,
who say to yourself,
“Who can bring me down to the ground?”

The vision of Obadiah.

This is what the Sovereign Lord says about Edom

We have heard a message from the Lord:
    An envoy was sent to the nations to say,
“Rise, let us go against her for battle”

“See, I will make you small among the nations;
