Obadiah 10-12 The Voice (VOICE)

10         because of your violent history against your brother Jacob.
    Shame will envelop you,
        and your nation will be destroyed forever.
11     You just stood there, doing nothing,
        while strangers ransacked their city,
    While invaders rushed through the gates and divided up Jerusalem for themselves.
        You might as well have been one of them.
12     You should never have gloated over your brother’s tragedy that day
        or been secretly happy about all their misfortune.
    You should never have celebrated the people of Judah’s decimation.
    You should never have acted so arrogantly
        on the day they suffered so much.
