Obadiah 9-11 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

People of Teman, your soldiers will be terrified.
    Everyone in Esau’s mountains
    will be cut down by swords.
10 You did harmful things to the people of Jacob.
    They are your relatives.
So you will be covered with shame.
    You will be destroyed forever.
11 Outsiders entered the gates of Jerusalem.
    They cast lots to see what each one would get.
Strangers carried off its wealth.
    When that happened, you just stood there and did nothing.
    You were like one of them.

Obadiah 9-11 New International Version (NIV)

Your warriors, Teman, will be terrified,
    and everyone in Esau’s mountains
    will be cut down in the slaughter.
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.
