Obadiah 1-3 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

God’s Judgment on Edom

The vision of Obadiah. Thus says my Lord Yahweh concerning Edom:

Edom’s Approaching Destruction

We have heard a report from Yahweh, and a messenger has been sent among the nations: “Rise up and let us rise against it[a] for battle.” “Look, I will[b] make you insignificant among the nations. You will be utterly despised! The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who live in the clefts of a rock, the heights of its dwelling, you who say in your heart: ‘Who can bring me down to the ground?’


  1. Obadiah 1:1 That is, Edom
  2. Obadiah 1:2 The NET Bible note for this verse points out: “The Hebrew perfect verb form used here usually describes past events. However, here and several times in the following verses it is best understood as portraying certain fulfillment of events that at the time of writing were still future. It is the perfect of certitude”
