Obadiah 1-4

1The vision of Obadiah.

Edom Will Be Humbled

Thus says the Lord God aconcerning Edom:
bWe have heard a report from the Lord,
and a messenger has been sent among the nations:
Rise up! Let us rise against her for battle!”
2Behold, I will make you small among the nations;
you shall be utterly despised.
Or  Behold, I have made you small among the nations; you are utterly despised

3 dThe pride of your heart has deceived you,
you who live in the clefts of the rock
Or Sela

in your lofty dwelling,
fwho say in your heart,
Who will bring me down to the ground?”
4Though you soar aloft like the eagle,
though your nest is set among the stars,
from there I will bring you down,

declares the Lord.
