1:8 At that time,” 1 the Lord says,
“I will destroy the wise sages of Edom! 2
the advisers 3 from Esau’s mountain! 4
1:9 Your warriors will be shattered, O Teman, 5
so that 6 everyone 7 will be destroyed 8 from Esau’s mountain!
Edom’s Treachery Against Judah
1:10 “Because 9 you violently slaughtered 10 your relatives, 11 the people of Jacob, 12
shame will cover you, and you will be destroyed 13 forever.
1:11 You stood aloof 14 while strangers took his army 15 captive,
and foreigners advanced to his gates. 16
When they cast lots 17 over Jerusalem, 18
you behaved as though you were in league 19 with them.
1:12 You should not 20 have gloated 21 when your relatives 22 suffered calamity. 23
You should not have rejoiced over the people of Judah when they were destroyed. 24
You should not have boasted 25 when they suffered adversity. 26
1:13 You should not have entered the city 27 of my people when they experienced distress. 28
You should not have joined 29 in gloating over their misfortune when they suffered distress. 30
You should not have looted 31 their wealth when they endured distress. 32
1:14 You should not have stood at the fork in the road 33 to slaughter 34 those trying to escape. 35
You should not have captured their refugees when they suffered adversity. 36
The Coming Day of the Lord
1:15 “For the day of the Lord 37 is approaching 38 for all the nations! 39
Just as you have done, so it will be done to you.
You will get exactly what your deeds deserve. 40
