About Obadiah

Obadiah 1:1 The vision of Obadiah. Thus says the Lord GOD concerning Edom, We have heard a rumour from the Lord and an ambassador is sent among the heathen, Arise you and let us rise up against her in battle.

Obadiah 1:2 Behold, I have made you small among the heathen. You are greatly despised.

Obadiah 1:3 The pride of your heart has deceived you, you that dwell in the clefts of the rock.(feeling safe in protected areas, here talking of Petra), whose habitation is high.(in many ways feeling an advantage over all threats), that says in his heart Who shall bring me down to the ground?

Obadiah 1:4 Though you exalt yourself as the eagle and though you set your nest among the stars, thence will I bring you down says the Lord.

Obadiah 1:5-7 If thieves came to you, if robbers by night, how are you cut off? Would they not have stolen till they had enough? If the grapegatherers came to you would they not leave some grapes? How are the things of Esau searched out? How are his hidden things sought up? All the men of your confederacy have brought you even to the border. The men that were at peace with you have deceived you and prevailed against you. They that eat your bread have laid a wound under you. There is none understanding in him.

Obadiah 1:9-12 And your mighty men, O Teman, shall be dismayed, to the end that every one of the mount of Esau may be cut off by slaughter. For your violence against your brother Jacob shame shall cover you and you shalt be cut off forever. In the day that you stood on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces and foreigners entered into his gates and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even you are as one of them. But you should not have looked on the day of your brother in the day that he became a stranger, neither should you have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction, neither should you have spoken proudly in the day of distress.
Teman was a city and region in Eastern Idumea, settled by Teman the grandson of Esau:.Genesis 36:10,11. The men of Teman had the reputation of great wisdom.

Proverbs 17:5.

Obadiah 1:13 You should not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity; yea, you should not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity.

Obadiah 1:14 Neither should you have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his that did escape. Neither should you have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress. 

Obadiah 1:15 For the day of the Lord is near upon all the heathen. As you have done, it shall be done unto you.(Matthew 22:36-40). Your reward shall return upon thine own head.
We 'sorta' reap what we have sown.
Obadiah 1:16 For as you have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink and they shall swallow down and they shall be as though they had not been.
