Obadiah 1-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Edom’s Fall Decreed

The vision of Obadiah.
Thus says the Lord God concerning Edom:
We have heard a message from the Lord,
    and a herald has been sent among the nations:
    “Rise up, so we may go to war against it!”
Now I make you least among the nations;
    you are utterly contemptible.
The pride of your heart has deceived you—
    you who dwell in mountain crevices,
    in your lofty home,[a]
Who say in your heart,
    “Who will bring me down to earth?”

  1. 3 Edom occupied the mountains southeast of Israel and the Dead Sea.

Obadiah’s Vision

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;
    you will be utterly despised.
The pride of your heart has deceived you,
    you who live in the clefts of the rocks[a]
    and make your home on the heights,
you who say to yourself,
    ‘Who can bring me down to the ground?’
