The Word of God: Obadiah 15-21 – November 27, 2019

15  For the day of the LORD is near against all the nations. 
     As you have done, it shall be done to you; 
          your deeds shall return on your own head. 
16  For as you have drunk on my holy mountain, 
          all the nations around you shall drink; 
     they shall drink and gulp down, 
          and shall be as though they had never been. 
17  But on Mount Zion there shall be those that escape, 
          and it shall be holy; 
      and the house of Jacob shall take possession of those who dispossessed them. 
18  The house of Jacob shall be a fire, 
          the house of Joseph a flame, 
          and the house of Esau stubble; 
     they shall burn them and consume them, 
          and there shall be no survivor of the house of Esau; 
     for the LORD has spoken. 
19  Those of the Negeb shall possess Mount Esau, 
          and those of the Shephelah the land of the Philistines; 
          they shall possess the land of Ephraim and the land of Samaria, 
          and Benjamin shall possess Gilead. 
20  The exiles of the Israelites who are in Halah 
          shall possess Phoenicia as far as Zarephath; 
     and the exiles of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad 
          shall possess the towns of the Negeb. 
21  Those who have been saved shall go up to Mount Zion 
          to rule Mount Esau; 
          and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s.
