Obadiah

Another one chapter book. It’s about curses and blessings.

Curses on Edom via God’s judgment. Curses on the nations at large via God’s judgment. Blessings on Israel via God’s restoration.

Why is Edom judged? Two reasons: 1) For not helping their brother out, aka standing aloof. 2) For pride.

The book ends with a vision of the end, saying “The Kingdom shall be the Lord’s.” Now that’s good stuff. I look forward to that day.

Interesting random note: The first nine verses of Obadiah can be found in Jeremiah 49:7-22.
