Edom's Violence Against Jacob

Obadiah 1

10 l Because of the violence done to your brother Jacob,
shame shall cover you,
m and you shall be cut off forever.
11 n On the day that you stood aloof,
o on the day that strangers carried off his wealth
and foreigners entered his gates
p and cast lots for Jerusalem,
you were like one of them.
12 q But do not gloat over the day of your brother
in the day of his misfortune;
r do not rejoice over the people of Judah
in the day of their ruin;
s do not boast 1
in the day of distress.
13 t Do not enter the gate of my people
in the day of their calamity;
t do not gloat over his disaster
in the day of his calamity;
u do not loot his wealth
in the day of his calamity.
14 v Do not stand at the crossroads
to cut off his fugitives;
do not hand over his survivors
in the day of distress.
