Obadiah 12

12   But do not gloat over the day of your brother
    in the day of his misfortune;
  do not rejoice over the people of Judah
    in the day of their ruin;
  do not boast1
    in the day of distress.


[1] 1:12 Hebrew do not enlarge your mouth

Obadiah 1:12, KJV

12  But thou shouldest not have looked on the day of thy brother in the day that he became a stranger;

Neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction;

Neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress.

Obadiah 1:12, NLT

when they exiled your relatives to distant lands.

You should not have rejoiced

when the people of Judah suffered such misfortune.

You should not have spoken arrogantly

in that terrible time of trouble.
