Obadiah 8-14

8 a  Will I not on that day, declares the  Lord,
destroy the wise men out of Edom,
and understanding out of b  Mount Esau?
9And your mighty men shall be dismayed c  O Teman,
so that every man from d  Mount Esau will be cut off by slaughter.

Edom’s Violence Against Jacob

10 e  Because of the violence done to your brother Jacob,
shame shall cover you,
f  and you shall be cut off forever.
11 g  On the day that you stood aloof,
h  on the day that strangers carried off his wealth
and foreigners entered his gates
i  and cast lots for Jerusalem,
you were like one of them.
12 j  But do not gloat over the day of your brother
in the day of his misfortune;
k  do not rejoice over the people of Judah
in the day of their ruin;
l  do not boast
Hebrew  do not enlarge your mouth

in the day of distress.
13 n  Do not enter the gate of my people
in the day of their calamity;
o  do not gloat over his disaster
in the day of his calamity;
p  do not loot his wealth
in the day of his calamity.
14 q  Do not stand at the crossroads
to cut off his fugitives;
do not hand over his survivors
in the day of distress.
