Obadiah 1-3 Names of God Bible (NOG)

Edom’s Fall

This is the vision of Obadiah.

This is what Adonay Yahweh says about Edom:

We have heard a message from Yahweh.
    A messenger was sent among the nations to say,
        “Get ready! Let’s go to war against Edom.”

“Edom, I will make you the smallest of nations.
    Others will despise you.
        Your arrogance has deceived you.
            You live on rocky cliffs.
            You make your home up high.
            You say to yourself,
                ‘No one can bring me down to earth.’

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?’
