Obadiah 15–21

15 “The day of the Lord is neard

for all nations.

As you have done, it will be done to you;

your deedse will return upon your own head.

16 Just as you drankf on my holy hill,g

so all the nations will drinkh continually;

they will drink and drink

and be as if they had never been.i

17 But on Mount Zion will be deliverance;j

it will be holy,k

and Jacob will possess his inheritance.l

18 Jacob will be a fire

and Joseph a flame;

Esau will be stubble,

and they will set him on firem and destroyn him.

There will be no survivorso

from Esau.”

The Lord has spoken.

19 People from the Negev will occupy

the mountains of Esau,

and people from the foothills will possess

the land of the Philistines.p

They will occupy the fields of Ephraim and Samaria,q

and Benjaminr will possess Gilead.

20 This company of Israelite exiles who are in Canaan

will possess the land as far as Zarephath;s

the exiles from Jerusalem who are in Sepharad

will possess the towns of the Negev.t

21 Deliverersu will go up onc Mount Zion

to govern the mountains of Esau.

And the kingdom will be the Lord’s.v
