Edom Mistreated His Brother

10 “For nviolence against your brother Jacob,

Shame shall cover you,

And oyou shall be cut off forever.

11 In the day that you pstood on the other side—

In the day that strangers carried captive his forces,

When foreigners entered his gates

And qcast lots for Jerusalem—

Even you were as one of them.

12 “But you should not have rgazed 3on the day of your brother

4In the day of his captivity;

Nor should you have srejoiced over the children of Judah

In the day of their destruction;

Nor should you have spoken proudly

In the day of distress.

13 You should not have entered the gate of My people

In the day of their calamity.

Indeed, you should not have 5gazed on their affliction

In the day of their calamity,

Nor laid hands on their substance

In the day of their calamity.

14 You should not have stood at the crossroads

To cut off those among them who escaped;

Nor should you have 6delivered up those among them who remained

In the day of distress.
