Context10Because of violence to your brother Jacob,
You will be covered with shame,
And you will be cut off forever.
11On the day that you stood aloof,
12Do not gloat over your brothers day,

14Do not stand at the fork of the road

15For the day of the LORD draws near on all the nations.

18Then the house of Jacob will be a fire
19Then those of the Negev will possess the mountain of Esau,
20And the exiles of this host of the sons of Israel,
21The deliverers will ascend Mount Zion

Her people have been humbled, the high and rocky fastnesses in which they trusted have not been able to save them. Neighbouring Arab tribes have successfully attacked them and driven them from their home (vv, 1-7).
