1 1 The vision of Obadiah. Thus saith the Lord God against Edom, [a]We have heard a rumor from the Lord, and an ambassador is sent among the heathen: arise, and [b]let us rise up against her to battle.
2 Behold, I have made thee small among the heathen: thou art utterly despised.
3 The [c]pride of thine heart hath deceived thee: thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rocks, whose habitation is high, that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?
Obadiah 1:1God hath certainly revealed to his prophets, that he will raise up the heathen to destroy the Edomites, whereof the rumor is now published, Jer. 49:14.
Obadiah 1:1Thus the heathen encourage themselves to rise against Edom.
Obadiah 1:3Which despisest all others in respect of thyself, and yet art but an handful in comparison of others, and art shut up among the hills as separate from the rest of the world.
