“Get ready, everyone!
Let’s assemble our armies and attack Edom!”

Unchecked Copy BoxOba 1:2 - The LORD says to Edom,
“I will cut you down to size among the nations;
you will be greatly despised.

because you live in a rock fortress
and make your home high in the mountains.
‘Who can ever reach us way up here?’
you ask boastfully.

and build your nest among the stars,
I will bring you crashing down,”
says the LORD.

will be left in the whole land of Edom,”

to your close relatives in Israel,[fn]
you will be filled with shame
and destroyed forever.

Unchecked Copy BoxOba 1:11 - When they were invaded,
you stood aloof, refusing to help them.
Foreign invaders carried off their wealth
and cast lots to divide up Jerusalem,
but you acted like one of Israel’s enemies.

Unchecked Copy BoxOba 1:12 - “You should not have gloated
when they exiled your relatives to distant lands.
You should not have rejoiced
when the people of Judah suffered such misfortune.
You should not have spoken arrogantly
in that terrible time of trouble.

Unchecked Copy BoxOba 1:13 - You should not have plundered the land of Israel
when they were suffering such calamity.
You should not have gloated over their destruction
when they were suffering such calamity.
You should not have seized their wealth
when they were suffering such calamity.

Unchecked Copy BoxOba 1:14 - You should not have stood at the crossroads,
killing those who tried to escape.
You should not have captured the survivors
and handed them over in their terrible time of trouble.

Unchecked Copy BoxOba 1:15 - “The day is near when I, the LORD,
will judge all godless nations!
As you have done to Israel,
so it will be done to you.
All your evil deeds
will fall back on your own heads.

Unchecked Copy BoxOba 1:16 - Just as you swallowed up my people
on my holy mountain,
so you and the surrounding nations
will swallow the punishment I pour out on you.
Yes, all you nations will drink and stagger
and disappear from history.
