Kuno kwe kwolesebwa kwa Obadiya.

Mukama Ayinzabyonna kwe yamuwa ku bikwata ku nsi ya Edomu.

Tuwulidde obubaka obuva eri Katonda,
    Katonda yaweereza omubaka eri amawanga n’obubaka buno nti,
“Mugolokoke tulumbe Edomu tumulwanyise.”

“Laba, ndibafuula aba wansi ennyo mu mawanga,
    era olinyoomererwa ddala.
Mwelimbye n’amalala agali mu mitima gyammwe,
    mmwe abasula mu mpuku ez’omu njazi,
    era ne muzimba amaka gammwe waggulu ku njazi.
Mmwe aboogera nti,
    ‘Ani alituwanulayo n’atussa wansi?’
Wadde nga mwewanika waggulu ng’empungu
    era ne muzimba ebisu byammwe wakati w’emmunyeenye,
    ndibawanulayo ne mbasuula wansi,”
    bw’ayogera Mukama.
“Singa ababbi babajjira,
    n’abanyazi ne babalumba ekiro,
akabi nga kaba kabatuuseeko.
    Tebandibabbyeko byonna bye baagala?
Oba singa abanozi b’emizabbibu bakujjiridde,
    tebandireseeko obuzabbibu butono nnyo?
Esawu alinyagulurwa,
    eby’obugagga bye ebikusike birinyagibwa.
Abaalagaana naawe balikusindiikiriza ku nsalo,
    Mikwano gyo balikulimbalimba ne bakuwangula;
abo abalya emmere yo balikutega omutego,
    balikutega omutego kyokka toliguvumbula.

“Ku lunaku olwo,
    sirizikiriza bagezi b’e Edomu,
    abantu ab’amagezi ababeera mu nsozi za Esawu?” bw’ayogera Mukama.
“Abalwanyi bo abazira ggwe, Temani, balitya,
    era na buli muntu mu nsozi za Esawu
    alittibwa.
10 Olw’ebikolwa eby’obukambwe ebyo bye wakola muganda wo Yakobo,
    oliswazibwa.
    Olizikirizibwa n’otaddayo kuwulirwa.
11 Ku lunaku lwe wayimirira ku bbali n’otofaayo,
    nga banyaga obugagga bwa Isirayiri,
ne bannaggwanga ne bayingira mu miryango gye,
    ne bakuba obululu okulaba atwala Yerusaalemi,
    wali omu ku bo.
12 Tosaanye kusekerera muganda wo
    mu biseera bye eby’okulaba ennaku,
wadde okusanyuka ku lunaku
    olw’okuzikirira kw’abantu ba Yuda,
newaakubadde okwewaana ennyo
    ku lunaku lwe baatawaanyizibwa ennyo.
13 Temukumba nga muyita mu miryango gy’abantu bange
    ku lunaku kwe baalabira obuyinike,
wadde okubasekerera
    ku lunaku kwe baabonaabonera,
newaakubadde okutwala obugagga bwabwe
    ku lunaku lwe baatuukibwako akabi.
14 Temulindira mu masaŋŋanzira
    okutta abo abadduka,
wadde okuwaayo abawonyeewo
    mu biro eby’okulabiramu ennaku.

15 “Olunaku luli kumpi kwe ndisalira
    amawanga gonna omusango.
Nga bwe mwakola abalala, nammwe bwe mulikolebwa.
    Ebikolwa byammwe biribaddira.
16 Ng’abantu bange bwe baanywa ekikompe eky’ekibonerezo ku lusozi lwange olutukuvu
    n’amawanga ageetooloddewo bwe galikinywa obutakoma;
balikinywa,
    babe ng’abataganywangako.
17 Naye ku Lusozi Sayuuni baliwona,
    kubanga lutukuvu,
n’ennyumba ya Yakobo
    eritwala omugabo gwabwe.
18 Ennyumba ya Yakobo eriba omuliro,
    n’ennyumba ya Yusufu olulimi olw’omuliro.
Ennyumba ya Esawu eriba bisusunku,
    era baligyokya n’eggwaawo.
Tewaliba muntu wa nnyumba ya Esawu
    n’omu alisigalawo,
kubanga Mukama akyogedde.

19 “Abantu b’e Negebu balitwala
    olusozi Esawu,
n’abantu ab’omu biwonvu balitwala
    ensi y’Abafirisuuti.
Balyetwalira n’ennimiro ez’omu Efulayimu ne Samaliya,
    ne Benyamini ne yeetwalira Gireyaadi.
20 Ekibiina ky’Abayisirayiri abaali mu buwaŋŋanguse e Kanani,
    balyetwalira ensi, okutuukira ddala ku Zalefaasi;
abawaŋŋanguse abaava mu Yerusaalemi abali mu Sefalaadi,
    balyetwalira ebibuga mu Negebu.
21 Abanunuzi balyambuka ku Lusozi Sayuuni,
    okufuga ensozi za Esawu.
    Obwakabaka buliba bwa Mukama.”

Obadiah

Obadiah’s vision

The vision of Obadiah.

This is what the Sovereign Lord says about Edom –

We have heard a message from the Lord:
    an envoy was sent to the nations to say,
‘Rise, let us go against her for battle’–

‘See, I will make you small among the nations;
    you will be utterly despised.
The pride of your heart has deceived you,
    you who live in the clefts of the rocks[a]
    and make your home on the heights,
you who say to yourself,
    “Who can bring me down to the ground?”
Though you soar like the eagle
    and make your nest among the stars,
    from there I will bring you down,’
declares the Lord.
‘If thieves came to you,
    if robbers in the night –
oh, what a disaster awaits you –
    would they not steal only as much as they wanted?
If grape pickers came to you,
    would they not leave a few grapes?
But how Esau will be ransacked,
    his hidden treasures pillaged!
All your allies will force you to the border;
    your friends will deceive and overpower you;
those who eat your bread will set a trap for you,[b]
    but you will not detect it.

‘In that day,’ declares the Lord,
    ‘will I not destroy the wise men of Edom,
    those of understanding in the mountains of Esau?
Your warriors, Teman, will be terrified,
    and everyone in Esau’s mountains
    will be cut down in the slaughter.
10 Because of the violence against your brother Jacob,
    you will be covered with shame;
    you will be destroyed for ever.
11 On the day you stood aloof
    while strangers carried off his wealth
and foreigners entered his gates
    and cast lots for Jerusalem,
    you were like one of them.
12 You should not gloat over your brother
    in the day of his misfortune,
nor rejoice over the people of Judah
    in the day of their destruction,
nor boast so much
    in the day of their trouble.
13 You should not march through the gates of my people
    in the day of their disaster,
nor gloat over them in their calamity
    in the day of their disaster,
nor seize their wealth
    in the day of their disaster.
14 You should not wait at the crossroads
    to cut down their fugitives,
nor hand over their survivors
    in the day of their trouble.

15 ‘The day of the Lord is near
    for all nations.
As you have done, it will be done to you;
    your deeds will return upon your own head.
16 Just as you drank on my holy hill,
    so all the nations will drink continually;
they will drink and drink
    and be as if they had never been.
17 But on Mount Zion will be deliverance;
    it will be holy,
    and Jacob will possess his inheritance.
18 Jacob will be a fire
    and Joseph a flame;
Esau will be stubble,
    and they will set him on fire and destroy him.
There will be no survivors
    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.
They will occupy the fields of Ephraim and Samaria,
    and Benjamin will possess Gilead.
20 This company of Israelite exiles who are in Canaan
    will possess the land as far as Zarephath;
the exiles from Jerusalem who are in Sepharad
    will possess the towns of the Negev.
21 Deliverers will go up on[c] Mount Zion
    to govern the mountains of Esau.
    And the kingdom will be the Lord’s.
