1 ὅρασις Αβδιου τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῇ Ιδουμαίᾳ ἀκοὴν ἤκουσα παρὰ κυρίου καὶ περιοχὴν εἰς τὰ ἔθνη ἐξαπέστειλεν ἀνάστητε καὶ ἐξαναστῶμεν ἐπ' αὐτὴν εἰς πόλεμον 2 ἰδοὺ ὀλιγοστὸν δέδωκά σε ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν ἠτιμωμένος σὺ εἶ σφόδρα 3 ὑπερηφανία τῆς καρδίας σου ἐπῆρέν σε κατασκηνοῦντα ἐν ταῖς ὀπαῖς τῶν πετρῶν ὑψῶν κατοικίαν αὐτοῦ λέγων ἐν καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ τίς με κατάξει ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν 4 ἐὰν μετεωρισθῇς ὡς ἀετὸς καὶ ἐὰν ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν ἄστρων θῇς νοσσιάν σου ἐκεῖθεν κατάξω σε λέγει κύριος 5 εἰ κλέπται εἰσῆλθον πρὸς σὲ ἢ λῃσταὶ νυκτός ποῦ ἂν ἀπερρίφης οὐκ ἂν ἔκλεψαν τὰ ἱκανὰ ἑαυτοῖς καὶ εἰ τρυγηταὶ εἰσῆλθον πρὸς σέ οὐκ ἂν ὑπελίποντο ἐπιφυλλίδα 6 πῶς ἐξηρευνήθη Ησαυ καὶ κατελήμφθη αὐτοῦ τὰ κεκρυμμένα 7 ἕως τῶν ὁρίων σου ἐξαπέστειλάν σε πάντες οἱ ἄνδρες τῆς διαθήκης σου ἀντέστησάν σοι ἠδυνάσθησαν πρὸς σὲ ἄνδρες εἰρηνικοί σου ἔθηκαν ἔνεδρα ὑποκάτω σου οὐκ ἔστιν σύνεσις αὐτοῖς 8 ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ λέγει κύριος ἀπολῶ σοφοὺς ἐκ τῆς Ιδουμαίας καὶ σύνεσιν ἐξ ὄρους Ησαυ 9 καὶ πτοηθήσονται οἱ μαχηταί σου οἱ ἐκ Θαιμαν ὅπως ἐξαρθῇ ἄνθρωπος ἐξ ὄρους Ησαυ 10 διὰ τὴν σφαγὴν καὶ τὴν ἀσέβειαν τὴν εἰς τὸν ἀδελφόν σου Ιακωβ καὶ καλύψει σε αἰσχύνη καὶ ἐξαρθήσῃ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα 11 ἀφ' ἧς ἡμέρας ἀντέστης ἐξ ἐναντίας ἐν ἡμέρᾳ αἰχμαλωτευόντων ἀλλογενῶν δύναμιν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀλλότριοι εἰσῆλθον εἰς πύλας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ ἔβαλον κλήρους καὶ σὺ ἦς ὡς εἷς ἐξ αὐτῶν 12 καὶ μὴ ἐπίδῃς ἡμέραν ἀδελφοῦ σου ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ἀλλοτρίων καὶ μὴ ἐπιχαρῇς ἐπὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς Ιουδα ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ἀπωλείας αὐτῶν καὶ μὴ μεγαλορρημονήσῃς ἐν ἡμέρᾳ θλίψεως 13 μηδὲ εἰσέλθῃς εἰς πύλας λαῶν ἐν ἡμέρᾳ πόνων αὐτῶν μηδὲ ἐπίδῃς καὶ σὺ τὴν συναγωγὴν αὐτῶν ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ὀλέθρου αὐτῶν μηδὲ συνεπιθῇ ἐπὶ τὴν δύναμιν αὐτῶν ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ἀπωλείας αὐτῶν 14 μηδὲ ἐπιστῇς ἐπὶ τὰς διεκβολὰς αὐτῶν τοῦ ἐξολεθρεῦσαι τοὺς ἀνασῳζομένους αὐτῶν μηδὲ συγκλείσῃς τοὺς φεύγοντας ἐξ αὐτῶν ἐν ἡμέρᾳ θλίψεως 15 διότι ἐγγὺς ἡμέρα κυρίου ἐπὶ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη ὃν τρόπον ἐποίησας οὕτως ἔσται σοι τὸ ἀνταπόδομά σου ἀνταποδοθήσεται εἰς κεφαλήν σου 16 διότι ὃν τρόπον ἔπιες ἐπὶ τὸ ὄρος τὸ ἅγιόν μου πίονται πάντα τὰ ἔθνη οἶνον πίονται καὶ καταβήσονται καὶ ἔσονται καθὼς οὐχ ὑπάρχοντες 17 ἐν δὲ τῷ ὄρει Σιων ἔσται ἡ σωτηρία καὶ ἔσται ἅγιον καὶ κατακληρονομήσουσιν ὁ οἶκος Ιακωβ τοὺς κατακληρονομήσαντας αὐτούς 18 καὶ ἔσται ὁ οἶκος Ιακωβ πῦρ ὁ δὲ οἶκος Ιωσηφ φλόξ ὁ δὲ οἶκος Ησαυ εἰς καλάμην καὶ ἐκκαυθήσονται εἰς αὐτοὺς καὶ καταφάγονται αὐτούς καὶ οὐκ ἔσται πυροφόρος ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ Ησαυ διότι κύριος ἐλάλησεν 19 καὶ κατακληρονομήσουσιν οἱ ἐν Ναγεβ τὸ ὄρος τὸ Ησαυ καὶ οἱ ἐν τῇ Σεφηλα τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους καὶ κατακληρονομήσουσιν τὸ ὄρος Εφραιμ καὶ τὸ πεδίον Σαμαρείας καὶ Βενιαμιν καὶ τὴν Γαλααδῖτιν 20 καὶ τῆς μετοικεσίας ἡ ἀρχὴ αὕτη τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ γῆ τῶν Χαναναίων ἕως Σαρεπτων καὶ ἡ μετοικεσία Ιερουσαλημ ἕως Εφραθα καὶ κληρονομήσουσιν τὰς πόλεις τοῦ Ναγεβ 21 καὶ ἀναβήσονται ἄνδρες σεσῳσμένοι ἐξ ὄρους Σιων τοῦ ἐκδικῆσαι τὸ ὄρος Ησαυ καὶ ἔσται τῷ κυρίῳ ἡ βασιλεία 1 The vision of Abdias. Thus says the Lord God to Edom: We have heard a rumour from the Lord, and he has sent an ambassador to the nations: Arise, and let us rise up to battle against him. 2 Behold I have made you small among the nations: you are exceeding contemptible. 3 The pride of your heart has lifted you up, who dwell in the clefts of the rocks, and set up your throne on high: who say in your heart: Who shall bring me down to the ground? 4 Though you be exalted as an eagle, and though you set your nest among the stars: thence will I bring you down, says the Lord. 5 If thieves had gone in to you, if robbers by night, how would you have held your peace? Would they not have stolen till they had enough? If the grapegatherers had come in to you, would they not have left you at the least a cluster? 6 How have they searched Esau, how have they sought out his hidden things? 7 They have sent you out even to the border: all the men of your confederacy have deceived you: the men of your peace have prevailed against you: they that eat with you shall lay snares under you: there is no wisdom in him. 8 Shall not I in that day, says the Lord, destroy the wise out of Edom, and understanding out of the mount of Esau? 9 And your valiant men of the south shall be afraid, that man may be cut off from the mount of Esau. 10 For the slaughter, and for the iniquity against your brother Jacob, confusion shall cover you, and you shall perish for ever. 11 In the day when you stood against him, when strangers carried away his army captive, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem: you also were as one of them. 12 But you shall not look on in the day of your brother, in the day of his leaving his country: and you shall not rejoice over the children of Juda, in the day of their destruction: and you shall not magnify your mouth in the day of distress. 13 Neither shall you enter into the gate of my people in the day of their ruin: neither shall you also look on in his evils in the day of his calamity: and you shall not be sent out against his army in the day of his desolation. 14 Neither shall you stand in the crossways to kill them that flee: and you shall not shut up them that remain of him in the day of tribulation. 15 For the day of the Lord is at hand upon all nations: as you have done, so shall it be done to you: he will turn your reward upon your own head. 16 For as you have drunk upon my holy mountain, so all nations shall drink continually: and they shall drink, and sup up, and they shall be as though they were not. 17 And in mount Sion shall be salvation, and it shall be holy, and the house of Jacob shall possess those that possessed them. 18  And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau stubble: and they shall be kindled in them, and shall devour them: and there shall be no remains of the house of Esau, for the Lord has spoken it. 19 And they that are toward the south, shall inherit the mount of Esau, and they that are in the plains, the Philistines: and they shall possess the country of Ephraim, and the country of Samaria: and Benjamin shall possess Galaad. 20 And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel, all the places of the Chanaanites even to Sarepta: and the captivity of Jerusalem that is in Bosphorus, shall possess the cities of the south. 21 And saviours shall come up into mount Sion to judge the mount of Esau: and the kingdom shall be for the Lord. 1 Visio Abdiæ. Hæc dicit Dominus Deus ad Edom : Auditum audivimus a Domino, et legatum ad gentes misit : surgite, et consurgamus adversus eum in prælium. 2 Ecce parvulum dedi te in gentibus : contemptibilis tu es valde. 3 Superbia cordis tui extulit te, habitantem in scissuris petrarum, exaltantem solium tuum; qui dicis in corde tuo : Quis detrahet me in terram? 4 Si exaltatus fueris ut aquila, et si inter sidera posueris nidum tuum, inde detraham te, dicit Dominus. 5 Si fures introissent ad te, si latrones per noctem, quomodo conticuisses? nonne furati essent sufficientia sibi? Si vindemiatores introissent ad te, numquid saltem racemum reliquissent tibi? 6 Quomodo scrutati sunt Esau; investigaverunt abscondita ejus? 7 Usque ad terminum emiserunt te : omnes viri fœderis tui illuserunt tibi : invaluerunt adversum te viri pacis tuæ, qui comedunt tecum, ponent insidias subter te; non est prudentia in eo. 8 Numquid non in die illa, dicit Dominus, perdam sapientes de Idumæa, et prudentiam de monte Esau? 9 Et timebunt fortes tui a meridie, ut intereat vir de monte Esau. 10 Propter interfectionem, et propter iniquitatem in fratrem tuum Jacob, operiet te confusio, et peribis in æternum. 11 In die cum stares adversus eum, quando capiebant alieni exercitum ejus, et extranei ingrediebantur portas ejus, et super Jerusalem mittebant sortem, tu quoque eras quasi unus ex eis. 12 Et non despicies in die fratris tui, in die peregrinationis ejus : et non lætaberis super filios Juda in die perditionis eorum : et non magnificabis os tuum in die angustiæ. 13 Neque ingredieris portam populi mei in die ruinæ eorum; neque despicies et tu in malis ejus in die vastitatis illius. Et non emitteris adversus exercitum ejus in die vastitatis illius, 14 neque stabis in exitibus ut interficias eos qui fugerint, et non concludes reliquos ejus in die tribulationis. 15 Quoniam juxta est dies Domini super omnes gentes : sicut fecisti, fiet tibi; retributionem tuam convertet in caput tuum. 16 Quomodo enim bibistis super montem sanctum meum, bibent omnes gentes jugiter : et bibent, et absorbebunt, et erunt quasi non sint. 17  Et in monte Sion erit salvatio, et erit sanctus; et possidebit domus Jacob eos qui se possederant. 18 Et erit domus Jacob ignis, et domus Joseph flamma, et domus Esau stipula : et succendentur in eis, et devorabunt eos, et non erunt reliquiæ domus Esau, quia Dominus locutus est. 19 Et hæreditabunt hi, qui ad austrum sunt, montem Esau, et qui in campestribus, Philisthiim : et possidebunt regionem Ephraim et regionem Samariæ, et Benjamin possidebit Galaad. 20 Et transmigratio exercitus hujus filiorum Israël, omnia loca Chananæorum usque ad Sareptam : et transmigratio Jerusalem, quæ in Bosphoro est, possidebit civitates austri. 21 Et ascendent salvatores in montem Sion judicare montem Esau, et erit Domino regnum.
