Obadiah 1
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1The vision of Obadiah thus says The Lord of Lords to Edom: “We are hearing a report from before LORD JEHOVAH, and a Messenger was sent to the nations. Arise, and we will arise against her for battle

2Behold, little one, I have given you among the Gentiles, and you are very despised

3The pride of your heart has deceived you who dwell in the strength of the cliff, and in the high place is his dwelling, and he said in his heart: ‘who will bring me down to the ground?’

4If you will be lifted up like an eagle, and if among the stars you put your nest, from there I will bring you down, says LORD JEHOVAH

5If thieves came upon you or robbers in the night, how would you have been silent until they stole their sufficiency, and if grape gatherers came to you, would they not be leaving gleanings?

6How Esau has been searched out and he will seek his hiding places!

7All the men of your covenant drove you to the border; they have deceived you and the men of your peace have mastered your power, and they set an ambush of your bread under you; there is no understanding in him

8In that day says, LORD JEHOVAH, I shall destroy the wise man from Edum, and the intelligent man from the mountain of Esau

9And your mighty men shall be plundered, Tayman, and the man shall be cut off from the Mountain of Esau

10From the killing and from the plundering of your brother Yaqob, shame shall cover you and you shall be destroyed for eternity

11In the day that you stood against him in the day that foreigners captured his army and foreigners entered into his gates, and they cast lots for Jerusalem, you also shall be as one of them

12And you shall not see in the day of your brother, in the day of foreigners, and you shall not rejoice for the children of Yehuda in the day of their destruction, and you shall not enlarge your mouth in the day of tribulation

13And you shall not enter into the gate of my people in the day of their adversity, and you shall not rejoice, even you, in his affliction in the day of his adversity, and you shall not terrify him in his army in the day of his adversity

14And you shall not stand against the fugitive to destroy his survivors, and you shall not hand over his survivors in the day of trouble

15Because the day of LORD JEHOVAH is near on all the nations, as what you have done, thus it shall be done to you, and your vengeance shall return on your head

16Because as you have drunk on the Mountain of my Holiness, all the nations shall drink constantly; they shall drink and they shall be shocked, and they shall be disabled and they shall be as if they had never existed

17And in the Mountain of Zion will be salvation and it will be holy, and those of the house of Yaqob shall possess those who possessed them

18And the house of Yaqob will be a fire and the house of Yoseph a flame and the house of Esau stubble, and they shall burn among them and they shall devour them, and there shall not be a survivor for the house of Esau, because LORD JEHOVAH has spoken

19And the mountain of Esau shall possess those of the south, and those of the plains, the Philistines, and they shall possess the field of Aphreim and the field of Samaria, and Benjamin, Gelad

20And this first captivity of the children of Israel that is from Canaan, and unto Tsarepta and the captivity of Jerusalem who are in Espania, they shall inherit the cities of the south

21And the redeemed shall come up to the Mountain of Zion to judge the mountain of Esau, and the Kingdom of LORD JEHOVAH shall be there
