The vision of Obadiah concerning Edom
The captivity of this host of the Children of Israel will possess that of the Canaanites, even to Zarephath; and the captivity of Jerusalem, which is in Sepharad, will possess the cities of the south.
"If thieves came to you, if robbers by night, (how are you cut off!), would they not have stolen until they had enough? If the grapegatherers came to you, would they not leave [some] grapes?
All the men of your confederacy have brought you [even] to the border, the men who were at peace with you have deceived you, [and] prevailed against you; [those who eat] your bread have laid a wound under you, [there is] no understanding in him.
In the day that you stood on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even you [were] as one of them.
But you should not have looked on the day of your brother in the day that he became a stranger; neither should you have rejoiced over the Children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither should you have spoken proudly in the day of distress.
You should not have entered into the gate of My people in the day of their calamity; indeed, you should not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid [hands] on their substance in the day of their calamity;
For as you have drunk upon My holy mountain, [so] will all the heathen drink continually, indeed, they will drink, and they will swallow down, and they will be as though they had not been.
And the house of Jacob will be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they will kindle in them, and devour them; and there will not be [any] remaining of the house of Esau; for the Lord has spoken [it].
And [those of] the south will possess the mount of Esau; and [those of] the plain, the Philistines, and they will possess the fields of Ephraim, and the fields of Samaria, and Benjamin [will possess] Gilead.
And the captivity of this host of the Children of Israel [will possess] that of the Canaanites, [even] to Zarephath; and the captivity of Jerusalem, which [is] in Sepharad, will possess the cities of the south.
