    The second person was Naamah an Ammonite wife of Solomon who was the mother of Rehoboam the son of Solomon, who was an ancestor of Jesus Christ (1 kings 14:21, 31; 2 Chronicles 12:13; Matthews 1:1, 7). When the children of Israel sinned against God, it was Eglon the king of Moabite who allied with Ammonite, and the Amalekites, and went and smote Israel, and they possessed the city of Palm Tree (Jericho) from them and enslaved the children of Israel for eighteen years, and when the Lord delivered the children of Israel out from the hands of these people, the Israelites slew 10,000 Moabites, all strong, courageous men and not a man escaped (Judges 3:12-30; Deuteronomy 34:3; 2 Chronicles 28:15). The children Moab, Ammon, Ishmaelites, Amalek, Edom, the Philistines and the Assyria were all mixed multitude, intermingled and intermarried together with the Ethiopians throughout ancient world, and were also allies (Psalm 83:5-9; Jeremiah 25:20-25; Genesis 36:35; Habakkuk 3:7; 2 chronicles 21:16). The Moabites as I mentioned earlier were the descendants of Lot the nephew of…

    significant role. During the 13th century B.C., and according to archaeological evidence (Bryant, 1967) the kingdom of Edom became established. In time, people also called it by the names of Mt. Seir, Esau, and Idumea. One could look across the desert and see high mountains to the east of Abrabah, built mainly of the red Nubian sandstone on a granite foundation (Aharoni, 1967).

    Exegesis Paper I am writing about Obadiah and the fall of Edom. This is a passage about how people and cities will truly reap what they sow. He shows that pride has a fall and that this city must fall to its pride. The neighboring city to Edom is Jerusalem, so passing judgement on Edom is no only teaches Edom a lesson but also teaches Jerusalem how to truly love their enemies. There is a lot of imagery in this passage as well as a few parts that translation has made unclear and is hard to follow…

    So the people who received the prophecy were mostly the residents of Judah. It is also interesting to note that no author from the New Testament alludes to Obadiah and also there is a striking similarity in Obadiah and Jeremiah. Obadiah is an exposition of Genesis 12:1-3 with two themes that are intertwined- 1) the judgment of Edom because of her pride and also because she mocked Judah when Judah was being attacked 2) the restoration of Judah which included a territory from the Edomites. The…

    He depicts Edom (the descendants of Esau) as prideful and reprimands them for not opening their borders to the Israelites when Babylon came on the scene. “Because of the violence against your brother Jacob, you will be covered with shame; you will be destroyed forever.” (Obadiah 1:10) Obadiah works to unify Israel by identifying Edom as a common enemy. However, Babylon was really the one who inflicted violence. Edom did not open their borders as it would have turned Babylon against them, and…

    He is rallying the remnant that survived with a vision for unity against a shared enemy. With his gift of oratory, he can craft his words carefully to make his poetry sound like its God’s idea for war against Edom. Obadiah has ten distinct predictions in his narrative. Seventeen of the twenty-one verses (81%) of the contents are predictive. They fall into three categories. First, he made a pronouncement against Edom, secondly, there was a prediction regarding the Nations, and thirdly, there was…

    I wonder why Esau is mentioned when they asked the question "How have you loved us?" It does not seem to me to me a direct answer to the question when it mentions Esau. The commentary helps me to understand the reason. The commentary briefly outlines the history of Edom happened during that period. It especially helps me to understand how Malachi's first audiences could have understand the situation and it allows me to interpret the passage appropriately. Edom seemed to be safe place for…

    Obadiah corroborates, for us that the Edomite’s continued to stand by and let foreigners enter the gates of Jerusalem and allow strangers to carry off with their wealth. God took great offense to these egregious actions; he vowed, he would cut them off from everything. God gives us one of his best examples of his compassion to Israel, but then shows us why we should fear him in the history of Edom. (Joel 1 & 2 NIV) gives a perfect scene where he has asked man to repent, and tells the elders…
