Obadiah-Jeremiah Parallels 2

Continued from Obadiah-Jeremiah Parallels 1

Obadiah 1:5a

If thieves came to you, destroyers by night
would they not have stolen until they had enough?
If the grape-gatherers came to you,
would they not leave gleanings?
Jeremiah 49:9
If the grape-gatherers come to you,
would they not leave gleanings?
If thieves come by night,
will they destroy more than enough for them?

Obadiah 1:6
How Esau is searched out!
His hidden things are sought out!
Jeremiah 49:10a
But I have stripped Esau; I have uncovered his secret places,
and he shall not be able to hide himself

Obadiah 1:8
Will I not in that day, says YHWH,
destroy the wise from Edom,
and understanding from the mount of Esau?
Jeremiah 49:7
So says YHWH of hosts concerning Edom,
Is wisdom no more in Teman?
Has council perished from the prudent?
Has their wisdom vanished?

Obadiah 1:9b
Everyone will be destroyed from the mountains of Esau.
Jeremiah 49:10b
Their children, relatives, and neighbors will all be destroyed.

Obadiah 1:16a
For as you drank on my holy mountain,
so shall all the nations drink continually;
yes, they shall drink, and swallow
Jeremiah 49:12
For so says YHWH, Behold, they whose judgment
was not to drink of the cup have assuredly drank.
And are you to be entirely unpunished?
You shall not go unpunished, but you will surely drink
