Obadiah 1-5 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

Edom’s Fall

This is the vision of Obadiah.

This is what the Almighty Lord says about Edom:

We have heard a message from the Lord.
A messenger was sent among the nations to say,
“Get ready! Let’s go to war against Edom.”

“Edom, I will make you the smallest of nations.
Others will despise you.
Your arrogance has deceived you.
You live on rocky cliffs.
You make your home up high.
You say to yourself,
‘No one can bring me down to earth.’
Even though you fly high like an eagle
and build your nest among the stars,
I will bring you down from there,” declares the Lord.

“If thieves or looters come to you during the night,
won’t they steal only until they’ve had enough?
You will be ruined!
If people come to pick your grapes,
won’t they leave a few grapes behind?
