14 I have (A)heard a message from the Lord,
And an (B)envoy is sent among the nations, saying,
(C)Gather yourselves together and come against her,
And rise up for battle!”
15 “For behold, I have made you small among the nations,
Despised among men.
16 “As for the terror of you,
The arrogance of your heart has deceived you,
O you who live in the clefts of [a]the (D)rock,
Who occupy the height of the hill.
Though you make your nest as (E)high as an eagle’s,
I will (F)bring you down from there,” declares the Lord.

Edom Will Be Humbled

The vision of Obadiah.

Thus says the Lord [a]God concerning (A)Edom—

(B)We have heard a report from the Lord,
And an (C)envoy has been sent among the nations saying,
(D)Arise and let us go against her for battle”—
“Behold, I will make you (E)small among the nations;
You are greatly despised.
“The (F)arrogance of your heart has deceived you,
You who live in the clefts of [b]the (G)rock,
In the loftiness of your dwelling place,
Who say in your heart,
(H)Who will bring me down to earth?’
“Though you (I)build high like the eagle,
Though you set your nest among the (J)stars,
From there I will bring you down,” declares the Lord.
