Vayishlach: "He sent" with the Common English Bible

Vayishlach: "He sent"

Torah Reading
Genesis 32:3-36:43

Prophets Reading
Hosea 11:7-12:12, Obadiah 1:1-21

Gospel Reading
John 1:19-2:12

Today I will look at the Prophets Reading and focus on Obadiah 1:17-21 from the Common English Bible and compare it with other version.
Obadiah 1:17-21
Edom’s punishers
 17 But on Mount Zion
there will be those who escape,
      and it will be holy;
      and the house of Jacob will drive out those who drove them out.
18 The house of Jacob will be a fire,
      the house of Joseph a flame,
      and the house of Esau straw;
   they will burn them up completely,
      and there will be no one left
      of the house of Esau,
            for the LORD has spoken.
19 Those of the arid southern plain
will possess Mount Esau,
      and those of the western foothills,
      the land of the Philistines;
   they will possess the land of Ephraim and the land of Samaria,
      and Benjamin will possess Gilead.
20 Those who remain of the Israelites
         will possess the land of the Canaanites as far as Zarephath;
   and those left from Jerusalem
   and who are now living in Sepharad
      will possess the cities
      of the arid southern plain.
21 The deliverers will go up to Mount Zion
      to rule Mount Esau,
      and the kingdom will be the LORD’s.

Obadiah 1:17-21

King James Version (KJV)

 17But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.
 18And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken it.
 19And they of the south shall possess the mount of Esau; and they of the plain the Philistines: and they shall possess the fields of Ephraim, and the fields of Samaria: and Benjamin shall possess Gilead.
 20And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel shall possess that of the Canaanites, even unto Zarephath; and the captivity of Jerusalem, which is in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south.
 21And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD's.

Obadiah 1:17-21

New International Version (NIV)

17 But on Mount Zion will be deliverance;
   it will be holy,
   and Jacob will possess his inheritance.
18 Jacob will be a fire
   and Joseph a flame;
Esau will be stubble,
   and they will set him on fire and destroy him.
There will be no survivors
   from Esau.”
            The LORD has spoken.

 19 People from the Negev will occupy
   the mountains of Esau,
and people from the foothills will possess
   the land of the Philistines.
They will occupy the fields of Ephraim and Samaria,
   and Benjamin will possess Gilead.
20 This company of Israelite exiles who are in Canaan
   will possess the land as far as Zarephath;
the exiles from Jerusalem who are in Sepharad
   will possess the towns of the Negev.
21 Deliverers will go up on Mount Zion
   to govern the mountains of Esau.
   And the kingdom will be the LORD’s. 

What do you think of the different versions? I am almost ready to give my review and opinion of the CEB. I'd love to hear what you think you can search for different verses at Bible gateway.
