Obadiah 10-12 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

10 You will be covered with shame
    because you were very cruel to your brother Jacob.
    So you will be destroyed completely.
11 You joined the enemies of Israel.
    Strangers carried Israel’s treasures away.
Foreigners entered Israel’s city gate.
    They threw lots to decide what part of Jerusalem they would get.
    And you were right there with them, waiting to get your share.
12 You should not have laughed[a]
    at your brother’s trouble.
You should not have been happy
    when they destroyed Judah.
You should not have bragged[b]
    at the time of their trouble.
