Obadiah 10-12 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

Edom’s Treachery against Judah

10 “Because of the violence done to your brother Jacob, shame will cover you and you will be cut off forever. 11 On the day you stood nearby,[a] on the day strangers took[b] his wealth, and foreigners entered his gates and cast lots over Jerusalem, you were also like one of them. 12 But you should not have gloated[c] over your brother’s day, on the day of his misfortune, and you should not have rejoiced over the people[d] of Judah on the day of their perishing, and you should not have opened your mouth wide on the day of distress.

Obadiah 10-12 New International Version (NIV)

10 Because of the violence against your brother Jacob,
    you will be covered with shame;
    you will be destroyed forever.
11 On the day you stood aloof
    while strangers carried off his wealth
and foreigners entered his gates
    and cast lots for Jerusalem,
    you were like one of them.
12 You should not gloat over your brother
    in the day of his misfortune,
nor rejoice over the people of Judah
    in the day of their destruction,
nor boast so much
    in the day of their trouble.
