The vision of Obad Yah: Thus says Adonay Yah Veh concerning Edom: We hear a report from Yah Veh, and an ambassador is sent among the goyim, Rise; yes, rise against her in war. 2 Behold, I give you little among the goyim; you are mightily despised: 3 the arrogance of your heart deceives you - you who tabernacle in the clefts of the rock; whose settlement is high; he says in his heart, Who descends me to the earth? 4 Though you heighten as the eagle and though you set your nest among the stars, I descend you from there - an oracle of Yah Veh. 5 If thieves come to you, if ravagers by night - how you are cut off steal they not until they satiate? If the clippers come to you, leave they not gleanings? 6 How Esav is searched! How his treasures bulge! 7 All the men of your covenant send you to the border: the men at shalom with you deceive you and prevail against you; they set your bread under you to estrange you: there is no discernment in him. 8 In that day, - an oracle of Yah Veh destroy I not the wise from Edom? And discernment from the mount of Esav? 9 And your mighty, O Teman, dismay, so that every man of the mount of Esav is cut off by severing. 10 For your violence against your brother Yaaqov, shame covers you; and you are severed eternally. 11 In the day you stand on the other side, in the day the strangers capture his valiant, and strangers enter his portals, and handle pebbles on Yeru Shalem, even you are as one of them: 12 and you neither see the day of your brother - the day he is estranged; nor cheer over the sons of Yah Hudah in the day of their destruction; nor greaten your mouth in the day of tribulation. 13 nor enter the portal of my people in the day of their calamity; yes, nor see their evil in the day of their calamity; nor spread over their valiant in the day of their calamity; 14 nor stand in the crossway to cut off his escapees; nor shut up his survivors in the day of tribulation. 15 For the day of Yah Veh is near on all the goyim: as you work, as worked to you: your dealing returns on your own head: 16 for as you drink on my holy mountain thus all the goyim drink continually - yes, they drink and they gulp, and they become as though they had never become. 17 And on mount Siyon becomes an escape and there becomes a holies; and the house of Yaaqov possesses their possessions. 18 And so be it, the house of Yaaqov becomes a fire and the house of Yoseph a flame and the house of Esav a stubble; and they inflame among them, and consume them; so that there are no survivors of the house of Esav; for Yah Veh has worded. 19 And they of the south possess the mount of Esav; and they of the lowland the Peleshethiym: and they possess the fields of Ephrayim and the fields of Shomeron: and Ben Yamin possesses Gilad: 20 and the exiles of the valiant of the sons of Yisra El, the Kenaaniym to Sarephath; and the exiles of Yeru Shalem in Sepharad, possess the cities of the south. 21 And saviours ascend on mount Siyon to judge the mount of Esav; and the sovereigndom becomes to Yah Veh.
