Obadiah 3-5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

The pride of your heart has deceived you—
    you who dwell in mountain crevices,
    in your lofty home,[a]
Who say in your heart,
    “Who will bring me down to earth?”
Though you soar like the eagle,
    and your nest is set among the stars,
From there I will bring you down—
    oracle of the Lord.
If thieves came to you, robbers by night
    —how you have been destroyed!—
    would they not steal merely till they had enough?
If grape pickers came to you,
    would they not leave some gleanings?[b]


  1. 3 Edom occupied the mountains southeast of Israel and the Dead Sea.
  2. 5 Something of value may escape the thief, and the grape picker always leaves something for the gleaners, but God’s devastation of Edom will be complete.
