Obadiah 9-11 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

And thy strong men, O Teman, shall be afraid, because everyone of the mount of Esau shall be cut off by slaughter.

10 For thy cruelty against thy [a]brother Jacob, shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off forever.

11 When thou stoodest [b]on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away his substance, and strangers entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even thou wast as one of them.


  1. Obadiah 1:10 He showeth the cause why the Edomites were so sharply punished: to wit, because they were enemies to his Church, whom he now comforteth by punishing their enemies.
  2. Obadiah 1:11 When Nebuchadnezzar came against Jerusalem, thou joinedest with him, and hadest part of the spoil, and so didst rejoice when my people, that is, thy brother were afflicted, whereas thou shouldest have pitied and helped thy brother.

Obadiah 9-11 New International Version (NIV)

Your warriors, Teman, will be terrified,
    and everyone in Esau’s mountains
    will be cut down in the slaughter.
10 Because of the violence against your brother Jacob,
    you will be covered with shame;
    you will be destroyed forever.
11 On the day you stood aloof
    while strangers carried off his wealth
and foreigners entered his gates
    and cast lots for Jerusalem,
    you were like one of them.
