Chapter 1 + Summary of Obadiah

Obadiah is one of the smallest books in the bible at about 1 ½ pages long, and includes only one chapter.

Chapter 1: Obadiah Prophesies Downfall of Edom

Obadiah has a vision, and in that vision he sees…

Edom will be made small among the nations. Though it ascends as high as an eagle, it shall be brought down. The judgment on Edom will be complete and not like when robbers and grape gatherers leave some grapes behind.  The house of Jacab shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, but the house of Esau shall be stubble. The children of Israel shall possess the land of the Canaanites. Saviors shall come to Mount Zion to judge the mountains of Esau, and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s.
