Edom’s Pride and Punishment

The Lord God gave Obadiah
a message[a] about Edom,
    and this is what we heard:
“I, the Lord, have sent
    a messenger
with orders for the nations
    to attack Edom.”

The Lord said to Edom:
I will make you the weakest
    and most despised nation.
You live in a mountain fortress,[b]
    because your pride
makes you feel safe from attack,
    but you are mistaken.
