Obadiah 1-3 Good News Translation (GNT)

This is the prophecy of Obadiah—what the Sovereign Lord said about the nation of Edom.

The Lord Will Punish Edom

The Lord has sent his messenger to the nations,
    and we have heard his message:
    “Get ready! Let us go to war against Edom!”
The Lord says to Edom,
    “I will make you weak;
    everyone will despise you.
Your pride has deceived you.
Your capital is a fortress of solid rock;
    your home is high in the mountains,
and so you say to yourself,
    ‘Who can ever pull me down?’

Obadiah 1-3 New International Version (NIV)

Obadiah’s Vision

The vision of Obadiah.

This is what the Sovereign Lord says about Edom

We have heard a message from the Lord:
    An envoy was sent to the nations to say,
“Rise, let us go against her for battle”

“See, I will make you small among the nations;
    you will be utterly despised.
The pride of your heart has deceived you,
    you who live in the clefts of the rocks[a]
    and make your home on the heights,
you who say to yourself,
    ‘Who can bring me down to the ground?’
