2 Samuel 8:13-14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

13 On his return,[a] David made a name for himself by defeating eighteen thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt. 14 He set up garrisons in Edom, and all the Edomites became David’s subjects. Thus the Lord brought David victory in all his undertakings.

Footnotes:

  1. 8:13 On his return: possibly to Jerusalem, after the revolt of Absalom (chaps. 15–18), which this catalogue of victories would avoid mentioning. 1 Chr 18:12 attributes the defeat of the Edomites to Abishai, while the superscription of Ps 60 attributes it to Joab.

Obadiah 11-14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

11 On the day you stood by,
    the day strangers carried off his possessions,
And foreigners entered his gates
    and cast lots for Jerusalem,
    you too were like one of them.[a]

12 [b]Do not gloat over the day of your brother,
    the day of his disaster;
Do not exult over the people of Judah
    on the day of their ruin;
Do not speak haughtily
    on the day of distress!
13 Do not enter the gate of my people
    on the day of their calamity;
Do not gloat—especially you—over his misfortune
    on the day of his calamity;
Do not lay hands upon his possessions
    on the day of his calamity!
14 Do not stand at the crossroads
    to cut down his survivors;
Do not hand over his fugitives
    on the day of distress!

Footnotes:

  1. 11 In 587 B.C., Edomites joined the invading Babylonian forces (v. 13) and captured escaping Judahites. The destruction of Jerusalem strengthened and expanded Edom’s hold on Judah’s southern territory.
  2. 12–14 The commands in vv. 12–14 are not to be understood as future prohibitions but as descriptions of crimes Edom in fact already committed on the day of Jerusalem’s fall described in v. 11.
