Obadiah 3-5 The Voice (VOICE)

    Your deep pride has blinded you to the truth,
        tucked securely in the clefts of the rocks, safely out of reach.
    You say to yourself,
        “Whose attack can reach up here and bring me down to the ground?”

Edom named its capital city “Rock,” and many of the people there were cave dwellers, virtually unreachable.

    Even if you fly high as the eagle, believing yourselves strong and free,
        and put your nest among the stars,
    I will have no trouble bringing you down.

This is declared by the Eternal One.

Consider how thoroughly you will be wiped out.
    If thieves come to steal from you
And robbers arrive under cover of night,
    won’t they take only what they want?
If the grape harvesters arrive,
    doesn’t their hasty picking usually leave some fruit in the field for the poor?
