Ask the Lord for His understanding of Obadiah 1. Read Obadiah 1. Let’s journey!
Commentary: Obadiah is the shortest book of the Bible. Using Edom, it warns against pride and thinking that you do not need God in your life. Edom, an enemy of Israel, was founded by Esau, the twin brother of Jacob (who became known as Israel). While the two nations never got along, the Edomites laughed and took pleasure in Israel’s defeat and humiliation. Obadiah foretells of the day when Edom will face justice for their actions. Like most prophecies, Obadiah ends with hope for Israel. Pride has and will lead to the downfall of many individuals and nations.
