Obadiah 1:21


1:21 Those who have been delivered 1  will go up on Mount Zion

in order to rule over 2  Esau’s mountain.

Then the Lord will reign as King! 3 

1 tc The present translation follows the reading מוּשָׁעִים (mushaim, “those who have been delivered”; cf. NRSV, CEV) rather than מוֹשִׁעִים (moshiim,“deliverers”; cf. NASB, NIV, NLT) of the MT (cf. LXX, Aquila, Theodotion, and Syriac).

2 tn Heb “to judge.” In this context the term does not mean “to render judgment on,” but “to rule over” (cf. NAB “to rule”; NIV “to govern”).

3 tn Heb “then the kingdom will belong to the Lord.”
