Obadiah 11-14 Expanded Bible (EXB)

11 You stood ·aside without helping [aloof]
    ·while [L on the day] strangers carried Israel’s ·treasures [wealth; or army] away.
When foreigners entered Israel’s city gate
    and threw lots to decide ·what part of Jerusalem they would take [L for Jerusalem],
you were like one of them.

Commands That Edom Broke

12 “Edom, ·do not laugh at [or you should not have gloated over] your ·brother Israel [L brother] in his time of ·trouble [misfortune]
or ·be happy [rejoice] about the ·people [sons; descendants] of Judah ·when they are destroyed [L on the day of destruction].
    Do not ·brag [boast; act with arrogance] ·when cruel things are done to them [L on the day of distress].
13 Do not enter the city gate of my people [C to plunder their goods]
    in their ·time [L day] of ·trouble [disaster; C the Hebrew word for “trouble” sounds like Edom]
or ·laugh at their problems [gloat over them]
    in their ·time [L day] of ·trouble [disaster].
Do not ·take their treasures [loot their wealth]
    in their ·time [L day] of ·trouble [disaster].
14 Do not stand at the crossroads
    to ·destroy [L cut off] ·those who are trying to escape [their fugitives].
Do not capture ·those who escape alive [their survivors] and turn them over to their enemy
    in their ·time [L day] of ·trouble [adversity].
