NASB — Obadiah 1 — KJV

Edom Will Be Humbled

1 The vision of Obadiah.
Thus says the Lord IGOD concerning aEdom
  bWe have heard a report from the LORD,
  And an cenvoy has been sent among the nations [saying],
  “dArise and let us go against her for battle”—
  2 “Behold, I will make you asmall among the nations;
  You are greatly despised.
  3 “The aarrogance of your heart has deceived you,
  You who live in the clefts of Ithe brock,
  In the loftiness of your dwelling place,
  Who say in your heart,
  ‘cWho will bring me down to earth?’
  4 “Though you abuild high like the eagle,
  Though you set your nest among the bstars,
  From there I will bring you down,” declares the LORD.
  5 “If athieves came to you,
  If Irobbers by night
  O how you will be ruined!—
  Would they not steal [only] IIuntil they had enough?
  If grape gatherers came to you,
  bWould they not leave [some] gleanings?
  6 “O how Esau will be aransacked,
  [And] his hidden treasures searched out!
  7 “All the amen Iallied with you
  Will send you forth to the border,
  And the men at peace with you
  Will deceive you and overpower you.
  [They who eat] your bbread
  Will set an ambush for you.
  (There is cno understanding IIin him.)
  8 “Will I not on that day,” declares the LORD,
  “aDestroy wise men from Edom
  And understanding from the mountain of Esau?
  9 “Then your amighty men will be dismayed, O bTeman,
  So that everyone may be ccut off from the mountain of Esau by slaughter.

  IYou will be covered [with] shame,

  15 ¶ “For the aday of the LORD draws near on all the nations.
  bAs you have done, it will be done to you.
  Your cdealings will return on your own head.
  16 “Because just as you adrank on bMy holy mountain,
  All the nations cwill drink continually.
  They will drink and Iswallow
  And become as if they had never existed.
  17 “But on Mount aZion there will be those who escape,
  And it will be holy.
  And the house of Jacob will bpossess their possessions.
  18 “Then the house of Jacob will be a afire
  And the house of Joseph a flame;
  But the house of Esau [will be] as stubble.
  And they will set Ithem on fire and consume Ithem,
  So that there will be bno survivor of the house of Esau,”
  For the LORD has spoken.
  19 Then [those of] the INegev will apossess the mountain of Esau,
  And [those of] the IIShephelah the bPhilistine [plain];
  Also, cpossess the territory of Ephraim and the territory of Samaria,
  And Benjamin [will possess] Gilead.
  20 And the exiles of this host of the sons of Israel,
  Who are [among] the Canaanites as far as aZarephath,
  And the exiles of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad
  Will possess the bcities of the Negev.
  21 The adeliverers will ascend Mount Zion
  To judge the mountain of Esau,
  And the bkingdom will be the LORDS.

The destruction of Edom,

1 ¶ The vision of Obadiah. Thus saith the Lord GOD concerning Edom; We have heard a rumour from the LORD, and an ambassador is sent among the heathen, Arise ye, and let us rise up against her in battle. 2 Behold, I have made thee small among the heathen: thou art greatly despised.

for their pride,

3 ¶ The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation [is] high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground? 4 Though thou exalt [thyself] as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD. 5 If thieves came to thee, if robbers by night, (how art thou cut off!) would they not have stolen till they had enough? if the grapegatherers came to thee, would they not leave [some] grapes? 6 How are [the things] of Esau searched out! [how] are his hidden things sought up! 7 All the men of thy confederacy have brought thee [even] to the border: the men that were at peace with thee have deceived thee, [and] prevailed against thee; [they that eat] thy bread have laid a wound under thee: [there is] none understanding in him. 8 Shall I not in that day, saith the LORD, even destroy the wise [men] out of Edom, and understanding out of the mount of Esau? 9 And thy mighty [men], O Teman, shall be dismayed, to the end that every one of the mount of Esau may be cut off by slaughter.

and for their wrong unto Jacob.

10 ¶ For [thy] violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever. 11 In the day that thou stoodest on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even thou [wast] as one of them. 12 But thou shouldest not have looked on the day of thy brother in the day that he became a stranger; neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress. 13 Thou shouldest not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity; yea, thou shouldest not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid [hands] on their substance in the day of their calamity; 14 Neither shouldest thou have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his that did escape; neither shouldest thou have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress. 15 For the day of the LORD [is] near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head. 16 For as ye have drunk upon my holy mountain, [so] shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.

The salvation and victory of Jacob.

17 ¶ But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. 18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be [any] remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken [it]. 19 And [they of] the south shall possess the mount of Esau; and [they of] the plain the Philistines: and they shall possess the fields of Ephraim, and the fields of Samaria: and Benjamin [shall possess] Gilead. 20 And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel [shall possess] that of the Canaanites, [even] unto Zarephath; and the captivity of Jerusalem, which [is] in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south. 21 And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD'S.
