Obadiah 3-4 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Your presumptuous heart has deceived you,
you who live in clefts of the rock[a][b]
in your home on the heights,
who say to yourself,
“Who can bring me down to the ground?”
Though you seem to soar[c] like an eagle
and make your nest among the stars,
even from there I will bring you down.
This is the Lord’s declaration.

Obadiah 3-4 New International Version (NIV)

The pride of your heart has deceived you,
    you who live in the clefts of the rocks[a]
    and make your home on the heights,
you who say to yourself,
    ‘Who can bring me down to the ground?’
Though you soar like the eagle
    and make your nest among the stars,
    from there I will bring you down,”
declares the Lord.
