• Obadiah 1:1-21
    The vision of Obadiah.
    Thus says the Lord GOD concerning Edom
    (We have heard a report from the LORD,
    And a messenger has been sent among the nations, saying,
    " Arise, and let us rise up against her for battle"):
    " Behold, I will make you small among the nations;
    You shall be greatly despised.
    The pride of your heart has deceived you,
    You who dwell in the clefts of the rock,
    Whose habitation is high;
    Youwho say in your heart, "Who will bring me down to the ground?"
    Though you ascend as high as the eagle,
    And though you set your nest among the stars,
    From there I will bring you down," says the LORD.
    “ If thieves had come to you,
    If robbers by night—
    Oh, how you will be cut off!—
    Would they not have stolen till they had enough?
    If grape-gatherers had come to you,
    Would they not have left some gleanings?
    “ Oh, how Esau shall be searched out!
    How his hidden treasures shall be sought after!
    All the men in your confederacy
    Shall force you to the border;
    The men at peace with you
    Shall deceive you and prevail against you.
    Those who eat your bread shall lay a trap for you.
    No one is aware of it.
    " Will I not in that day," says the LORD,
    " Even destroy the wise men from Edom,
    And understanding from the mountains of Esau?
    Then your mighty men, O Teman, shall be dismayed,
    To the end that everyone from the mountains of Esau
    May be cut off by slaughter. " For violence against your brother Jacob,
    Shame shall cover you,
    And you shall be cut off forever.
    In the day that you stood on the other side—
    In the day that strangers carried captive his forces,
    When foreigners entered his gates
    And cast lots for Jerusalem—
    Even you were as one of them.
    " But you should not have gazed on the day of your brother
    In the day of his captivity;
    Nor should you have rejoiced over the children of Judah
    In the day of their destruction;
    Nor should you have spoken proudly
    In the day of distress.
    You should not have entered the gate of My people
    In the day of their calamity.
    Indeed, you should not have gazed on their affliction
    In the day of their calamity,
    Nor laid hands on their substance
    In the day of their calamity.
    You should not have stood at the crossroads
    To cut off those among them who escaped;
    Nor should you have delivered up those among them who remained
    In the day of distress.
    “ For the day of the LORD upon all the nations is near;
    As you have done, it shall be done to you;
    Your reprisal shall return upon your own head.
    For as you drank on My holy mountain,
    So shall all the nations drink continually;
    Yes, they shall drink, and swallow,
    And they shall be as though they had never been. “ But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance,
    And there shall be holiness;
    The house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.
    The house of Jacob shall be a fire,
    And the house of Joseph a flame;
    But the house of Esau shall be stubble;
    They shall kindle them and devour them,
    And no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau,”
    For the LORD has spoken.
    The South shall possess the mountains of Esau,
    And the Lowland shall possess Philistia.
    They shall possess the fields of Ephraim
    And the fields of Samaria.
    Benjamin shall possess Gilead.
    And the captives of this host of the children of Israel
    Shall possess the land of the Canaanites
    As far as Zarephath.
    The captives of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad
    Shall possess the cities of the South.
    Then saviors shall come to Mount Zion
    To judge the mountains of Esau,
    And the kingdom shall be the LORD's.
     
  • Genesis 27:39-40
    Then Isaac his father answered and said to him:
    " Behold, your dwelling shall be of the fatness of the earth,
    And of the dew of heaven from above. By your sword you shall live,
    And you shall serve your brother;
    And it shall come to pass, when you become restless,
    That you shall break his yoke from your neck."
     
  • Exodus 17:8-16
    Now Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. And Moses said to Joshua, “Choose us some men and go out, fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.” So Joshua did as Moses said to him, and fought with Amalek. And Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. Then the LORD said to Moses, “Write this for a memorial in the book and recount it in the hearing of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.” And Moses built an altar and called its name, The-LORD-Is-My-Banner; for he said, "Because the LORD has sworn: the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation."
     
  • Jeremiah 49:7-22
    Against Edom. Thus says the LORD of hosts:
    Is wisdom no more in Teman?
    Has counsel perished from the prudent?
    Has their wisdom vanished?
    Flee, turn back, dwell in the depths, O inhabitants of Dedan!
    For I will bring the calamity of Esau upon him,
    The time that I will punish him.
    If grape-gatherers came to you,
    Would they not leave some gleaning grapes?
    If thieves by night,
    Would they not destroy until they have enough?
    But I have made Esau bare;
    I have uncovered his secret places,
    And he shall not be able to hide himself.
    His descendants are plundered,
    His brethren and his neighbors,
    And he is no more.
    Leave your fatherless children,
    I will preserve them alive;
    And let your widows trust in Me.” For thus says the LORD: “Behold, those whose judgment was not to drink of the cup have assuredly drunk. And are you the one who will altogether go unpunished? You shall not go unpunished, but you shall surely drink of it. For I have sworn by Myself,” says the LORD, “that Bozrah shall become a desolation, a reproach, a waste, and a curse. And all its cities shall be perpetual wastes.”
    I have heard a message from the LORD,
    And an ambassador has been sent to the nations:
    "Gather together, come against her,
    And rise up to battle!
    "For indeed, I will make you small among nations,
    Despised among men.
    Your fierceness has deceived you,
    The pride of your heart,
    O you who dwell in the clefts of the rock,
    Who hold the height of the hill!
    Though you make your nest as high as the eagle,
    I will bring you down from there,” says the LORD.
    “ Edom also shall be an astonishment;
    Everyone who goes by it will be astonished
    And will hiss at all its plagues.
    As in the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah
    And their neighbors,” says the LORD,
    “ No one shall remain there,
    Nor shall a son of man dwell in it.
    “ Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the floodplain of the Jordan
    Against the dwelling place of the strong;
    But I will suddenly make him run away from her.
    And who is a chosen man that I may appoint over her?
    For who is like Me?
    Who will arraign Me?
    And who is that shepherd
    Who will withstand Me?”
    Therefore hear the counsel of the LORD that He has taken against Edom,
    And His purposes that He has proposed against the inhabitants of Teman:
    Surely the least of the flock shall draw them out;
    Surely He shall make their dwelling places desolate with them.
    The earth shakes at the noise of their fall;
    At the cry its noise is heard at the Red Sea.
    Behold, He shall come up and fly like the eagle,
    And spread His wings over Bozrah;
    The heart of the mighty men of Edom in that day shall be
    Like the heart of a woman in birth pangs.
     
  • Lamentations 4:21-22
    Rejoice and be glad, O daughter of Edom,
    You who dwell in the land of Uz!
    The cup shall also pass over to you
    And you shall become drunk and make yourself naked.
    The punishment of your iniquity is accomplished,
    O daughter of Zion;
    He will no longer send you into captivity.
    He will punish your iniquity,
    O daughter of Edom;
    He will uncover your sins!
     
  • Ezekiel 25:12-14
    ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Because of what Edom did against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and has greatly offended by avenging itself on them,” therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “I will also stretch out My hand against Edom, cut off man and beast from it, and make it desolate from Teman; Dedan shall fall by the sword. I will lay My vengeance on Edom by the hand of My people Israel, that they may do in Edom according to My anger and according to My fury; and they shall know My vengeance,” says the Lord GOD.
     
  • Ezekiel 35:1-15
    Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir and prophesy against it, and say to it, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD:
    “ Behold, O Mount Seir, I am against you;
    I will stretch out My hand against you,
    And make you most desolate;
    I shall lay your cities waste,
    And you shall be desolate.
    Then you shall know that I am the LORD. “Because you have had an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end, therefore, as I live,” says the Lord GOD, “I will prepare you for blood, and blood shall pursue you; since you have not hated blood, therefore blood shall pursue you. Thus I will make Mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it the one who leaves and the one who returns. And I will fill its mountains with the slain; on your hills and in your valleys and in all your ravines those who are slain by the sword shall fall. I will make you perpetually desolate, and your cities shall be uninhabited; then you shall know that I am the LORD. “Because you have said, ‘These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess them,’ although the LORD was there, therefore, as I live,” says the Lord GOD, “I will do according to your anger and according to the envy which you showed in your hatred against them; and I will make Myself known among them when I judge you. Then you shall know that I am the LORD. I have heard all your blasphemies which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, ‘They are desolate; they are given to us to consume.’ Thus with your mouth you have boasted against Me and multiplied your words against Me; I have heard them.” ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “The whole earth will rejoice when I make you desolate. As you rejoiced because the inheritance of the house of Israel was desolate, so I will do to you; you shall be desolate, O Mount Seir, as well as all of Edom—all of it! Then they shall know that I am the LORD.”’

     
  • Amos 1:11-12
    Thus says the LORD:
    " For three transgressions of Edom, and for four,
    I will not turn away its punishment,
    Because he pursued his brother with the sword,
    And cast off all pity;
    His anger tore perpetually,
    And he kept his wrath forever.
    But I will send a fire upon Teman,
    Which shall devour the palaces of Bozrah."
     
  • Malachi 1:2-3
    ' I have loved you,' says the LORD.
    ' Yet you say, 'In what way have You loved us?'
    Wasnot Esau Jacob's brother?'
    Says the LORD.
    ' Yet Jacob I have loved;
    But Esau I have hated,
    And laid waste his mountains and his heritage
    For the jackals of the wilderness.”

Therefore watch yourselves carefully. Do not meddle with them, for I will not give you any of their land, no, not so much as one footstep, because I have given Mount Seir to Esau as a possession. You shall buy food from them with money, that you may eat; and you shall also buy water from them with money, that you may drink.

    “Remember what Amalek did to you on the way as you were coming out of Egypt, how he met you on the way and attacked your rear ranks, all the stragglers at your rear, when you were tired and weary; and he did not fear God. Therefore it shall be, when the LORD your God has given you rest from your enemies all around, in the land which the LORD your God is giving you to possess as an inheritance, that you will blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. You shall not forget.

  • Romans 9:10-13
    And not only this, but when Rebecca also had conceived by one man, even by our father Isaac (for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls), it was said to her, "The older shall serve the younger." As it is written, "Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated."

    “Two nations are in your womb,
    Two peoples shall be separated from your body;
    One people shall be stronger than the other,
    And the older shall serve the younger.” So when her days were fulfilled for her to give birth, indeed there were twins in her womb. And the first came out red. He was like a hairy garment all over; so they called his name Esau. Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau’s heel; so his name was called Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.
     
  • Genesis 25:30-34
    And Esau said to Jacob, "Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary." Therefore his name was called Edom. But Jacob said, "Sell me your birthright as of this day."

And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
