Obadiah 1-3 Expanded Bible (EXB)

The Lord Will Punish the Edomites

This is the vision of Obadiah.

This is what the Lord God says about Edom [C the Edomites were descendants of Esau, Jacob’s twin brother (Gen. 25); they were often in conflict with Israel]:
We have heard a ·message [report] from the Lord.
    A ·messenger [envoy] has been sent among the nations, saying,
“·Attack [L Rise up]! Let’s go ·attack [L rise to battle against] Edom!”

The Lord Speaks to the Edomites

“·Soon [L Look; T Behold] I will make you ·the smallest of [or weak among the] nations.
    You will be greatly ·hated [despised] by everyone.
Your pride has ·fooled [deceived] you,
    you who live in the ·hollow places of the cliff [T clefts of the rock].
    Your home is ·up high [on the heights],
you who say to yourself,
    ‘·No one can [L Who can…?] bring me down to the ground.’
