Obadiah 10-14

Edom’s Violence Against Jacob

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

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