“And your mighty men shall be dismayed and demoralized, O [a]Teman,
So that everyone from the mountain of Esau may be cut off in the slaughter.
“Because of the violence you did against your brother Jacob,
Shame shall cover you [completely],
And you shall be cut off forever.
“On the day that [Jerusalem was destroyed] you stood aloof [from your brother Jacob]—
On the day that strangers took his forces captive and carried off his wealth,
And foreigners entered his gates
And cast lots for Jerusalem [dividing the city for plunder]—
You too were like one of them [collaborating with the enemy].(A)
- Obadiah 1:9 Teman was one of the main cities of Edom.
