Obadiah 1-3 Living Bible (TLB)

In a vision the Lord God showed Obadiah the future of the land of Edom.[a]

“A report has come from the Lord,” he said, “that God has sent an ambassador to the nations with this message: ‘Attention! You are to send your armies against Edom and destroy her!’”

“I will cut you down to size among the nations, Edom, making you small and despised.

“You are proud because you live in those high, inaccessible cliffs. ‘Who can ever reach us way up here!’ you boast. Don’t fool yourselves!


  1. Obadiah 1:1 Edom. A nation southeast of Israel including Petra, the city hewn from rocks; her southern boundary was on the Gulf of Aqaba.
