Obadiah 3-5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“The arrogance of your heart has deceived you,
You who live in the clefts of [a]the rock,
In the loftiness of your dwelling place,
Who say in your heart,
Who will bring me down to earth?’
“Though you build high like the eagle,
Though you set your nest among the stars,
From there I will bring you down,” declares the Lord.
“If thieves came to you,
If [b]robbers by night—
O how you will be ruined!—
Would they not steal only [c]until they had enough?
If grape gatherers came to you,
Would they not leave some gleanings?

Obadiah 3-5 New International Version (NIV)

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?’
Though you soar like the eagle
    and make your nest among the stars,
    from there I will bring you down,”
declares the Lord.
“If thieves came to you,
    if robbers in the night—
oh, what a disaster awaits you!—
    would they not steal only as much as they wanted?
If grape pickers came to you,
    would they not leave a few grapes?
