Obadiah 8-14

8 aWill I not on that day, declares the Lord,
destroy the wise men out of Edom,
and understanding out of bMount Esau?
9And your mighty men shall be dismayed, cO Teman,
so that every man from dMount Esau will be cut off by slaughter.

Edom’s Violence Against Jacob

10 eBecause of the violence done to your brother Jacob,
shame shall cover you,
fand you shall be cut off forever.
11 gOn the day that you stood aloof,
hon the day that strangers carried off his wealth
and foreigners entered his gates
iand cast lots for Jerusalem,
you were like one of them.
12 jBut do not gloat over the day of your brother
in the day of his misfortune;
kdo not rejoice over the people of Judah
in the day of their ruin;
ldo not boast
Hebrew  do not enlarge your mouth

in the day of distress.
13 nDo not enter the gate of my people
in the day of their calamity;
odo not gloat over his disaster
in the day of his calamity;
pdo not loot his wealth
in the day of his calamity.
14 qDo not stand at the crossroads
to cut off his fugitives;
do not hand over his survivors
in the day of distress.
