1:1 The vision of Obadiah. This is what the Lord Yahweh says about Edom. We have heard news from Yahweh, and an ambassador is sent among the nations, saying, "Arise, and let`s rise up against her in battle.
1:2 Behold, I have made you small among the nations. You are greatly despised.
1:4 Though you mount on high as the eagle, and though your nest is set among the stars, I will bring you down from there, says Yahweh.
1:5 If thieves came to you, if robbers by night -- oh, what disaster awaits you -- wouldn`t they only steal until they had enough? If grape pickers came to you, wouldn`t they leave some gleaning grapes?
1:7 All the men of your alliance have brought you on your way, even to the border. The men who were at peace with you have deceived you, and prevailed against you. Friends who eat your bread lay a snare under you. There is no understanding in him.
1:10 For the violence done to your brother Jacob, shame will cover you, and you will be cut off forever.

1:14 Don`t stand in the crossroads to cut off those of his who escape. Don`t deliver up those of his who remain in the day of distress.
1:16 For as you have drunk on my holy mountain, so will all the nations drink continually. Yes, they will drink, swallow down, and will be as though they had not been.
1:17 But in Mount Zion, there will be those who escape, and it will be holy. The house of Jacob will possess their possessions.
1:18 The house of Jacob will be a fire, the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble. They will burn among them, and devour them. There will not be any remaining to the house of Esau." Indeed, Yahweh has spoken.
1:20 The captives of this host of the children of Israel, who are among the Canaanites, will possess even to Zarephath; and the captives of Jerusalem, who are in Sepharad, will possess the cities of the Negev.
1:21 Saviors will go up on Mount Zion to judge the mountains of Esau, and the kingdom will be Yahweh`s.
