Obadiah 19-21 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Future Blessing for Israel

19 People from the Negev will possess
the hill country of Esau;
those from the Judean foothills will possess
the land of the Philistines.
They[a] will possess
the territories of Ephraim and Samaria,
while Benjamin will possess Gilead.
20 The exiles of the Israelites who are in Halah[b]
and who are among the Canaanites as far as Zarephath
as well as the exiles of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad
will possess the cities of the Negev.
21 Saviors[c] will ascend Mount Zion
to rule over the hill country of Esau,
but the kingdom will be the Lord’s.
