Obadiah 1-3 New English Translation (NET Bible)

God’s Judgment on Edom

The vision that Obadiah saw.
The Lord God says this concerning Edom:

Edom’s Approaching Destruction

We have heard a report from the Lord.
An envoy was sent among the nations, saying,
“Arise! Let us make war against Edom!”
The Lord says, “Look! I will make you a weak nation;
you will be greatly despised!
Your presumptuous heart has deceived you—
you who reside in the safety of the rocky cliffs,
whose home is high in the mountains.
You think to yourself,
‘No one can bring me down to the ground!’

Obadiah 1-3 New International Version (NIV)

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?’
