Obadiah 1:17

Context

1:17 But on Mount Zion there will be a remnant of those who escape, 1 

and it will be a holy place once again.

The descendants 2  of Jacob will conquer 3 

those who had conquered them. 4 

1 tn Heb “will be a fugitive.” This is a collective singular. Cf. NCV “some will escape the judgment.”

2 tn Heb “house” (so most English versions); NCV, TEV “the people of Jacob.” The word “house” also occurs four times in v. 18.

3 tn Heb “dispossess.” This root is repeated in the following line to emphasize poetic justice: The punishment will fit the crime.

4 tc The present translation follows the reading מוֹרִשֵׁיהֶם (morishehem; literally, “those dispossessing them”; cf. NAB, NRSV, CEV) rather than מוֹרָשֵׁיהֶם (morashehem, “their possessions”) of the MT (cf. LXX, Syriac, and Vg, followed by KJV, ASV, NASB).
