Bible Journey > Obadiah

Here are my thoughts and highlights from Obadiah as I continue my journey through the Bible:

Obadiah

  • Obadiah means “Servant of YHWH”
  • A judgment against Edom (The descendants of Esau)
  • Allowing injustice is the same as committing it
    • Edom “stood and watched” and “were as bad as they were”
  • A remnant of Israel will be saved but Edom is screwed.
  • It seems the “hope” at the end here is that Israel will rule justly. Apparently Edom is incapable of redemption?
