The Book of Obadyah [Obadiah]

Chapter 1

1 The vision of Obadyah. This says the Heavenly Father Yahwah concerning Edom [children of Esau]. We heard tidings from Yahwah [YHWH], an ambassador is sent among the nations, saying: Arise, let us rise up against her in battle.

2 Behold, I made you small among the nations, you are greatly despised.

3 The pride of your heart deceives you, O you who dwell in the cliffs of the rock, whose habitation is high, who says in his heart: Who will bring me down to the ground?

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 Yahwah.

5 If thieves came to you, if robbers by night (how are you cut off!), would they not steal only till they had enough? If grape-gatherers came to you, would they not leave some gleaning grapes?

6 How are the things of Esau searched! How are his hidden treasures searched out!

7 All the men of your confederacy brought you on your way, even to the border. The men who were at peace with you deceived you, and prevailed against you. Those who eat your bread lay a snare under you, there is no understanding in him.

8 Shall I not destroy the wise men out of Edom in that day: says Yahwah; and understanding out of the mount of Esau?

9 Your mighty men will be dismayed, O Teman, to the end that every one may be cut off from the mount of Esau by slaughter.

10 Shame will cover you for the violence done to your brother Yaacob, you will be cut off for ever.

11 In the day you stood on the other side, in the day strangers carried away his substance, and foreigners entered into his gates to cast lots upon Yerusalem, you were even as one of them.

12 But do not look on the day of your brother in the day of his disaster, do not rejoice over the children of Yahudah in the day of their destruction, nor speak proudly in the day of distress.

13 Do not enter into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity. Yea, do not look on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor lay your hands on their substance in the day of their calamity.

14 Do not stand in the crossway, to cut off those of his who escape, and do not deliver up those of his who remain in the day of distress.

15 For the day of Yahwah is near upon all the nations. As you have done, it will be done to you, your dealing will return upon your own head.

16 As you drank upon my holy mountain, so all the nations will drink continually. Yea, they will drink, swallow down, and will be as though they were not.

17 But in mount Zion there will be those who escape. It will be holy, and the house of Yaacob will possess their possessions.

18 The house of Yaacob will be a fire, and the house of Yahusef a flame. The house of Esau is for stubble, they will burn among them, and devour them. There will not be any remaining to the house of Esau: for Yahwah spoke it.

19 Those of the South will possess the mount of Esau, and those of the lowland the Philistines. They will possess the field of Ephrayim, the field of Samaria, and Benjamin will possess Gilead.

20 The captives of this host of the children of Yisrayah, who are among the Canaanites, will possess even to Zarephath. The captives of Yerusalem, who are in Sepharad, will possess the cities of the South.

21 Saviors will come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau, and the kingdom will be Yahwah's.
