1 俄巴底亚得了耶和华的默示。论以东:我从耶和华那里见信息,并有使者被差往列国去,起来罢,一同起来以东争战!

2 我使你─以东在列国中为最小的,被人大大藐视。

3 在山穴中、居所在处的啊,你因狂傲自欺,:谁能将我拉地去呢?

4 你虽如大飞,在宿之间搭窝,我必从那里拉你来。这是耶和华的。

5 盗贼若在你那里,或强盗夜间而─你何竟被剪除─岂不窃直到够了呢?摘葡萄的若到你那里,岂不剩下些葡萄呢?

6 以扫的隐密处何竟被搜寻?他隐藏的宝物何竟被查出?

7 与你结盟的都送你上,直到交界;与你和好的欺骗你,且胜过你;与你一同吃饭的设网罗陷害你;在你心里毫无聪明。

8 耶和华:到那日,我岂不从以东除灭智慧人?从以扫除灭聪明人?

9 提幔哪,你的勇士必惊惶,甚至以扫都被杀戮剪除。

10 因你向兄弟雅各行强暴,羞愧必遮盖你,你也必永远断绝。

11 当外人掳掠雅各的财物,外邦人进入他的城,为耶路撒冷拈阄的日子,你竟站在旁,像与他们同夥。

12 兄弟遭难的日子,你不当瞪眼着;犹大人被灭的日子,你不当因此欢乐;他们遭难的日子,你不当狂傲的话。

13 我民遭灾的日子,你不当进他们的城;他们遭灾的日子,你不当瞪眼着他们受苦;他们遭灾的日子,你不当伸手抢他们的财物;

14 你不当站在岔口剪除他们中间逃脱的;他们遭难的日子,你不当将他们剩下的人交付仇敌。

15 耶和华降罚的日子临近万国。你怎样行,他也必照样向你行;你的报应必归到你上。

16 你们犹大人在我怎样了苦杯,万国也必照样常常地;且且咽,他们就归於无有。

17 在锡安必有逃脱的人,那也必成雅各家必得原有的产业。

18 雅各家必成为大;约瑟家必为焰;以扫家必如碎秸;必将他烧着吞灭。以扫家必无馀剩的。这是耶和华的。

19 地的人必得以扫;高原的人必得非利士地,也得以法莲地和撒玛利亚地;便雅悯人必得基列。

20 在迦人中被掳的以色列众人必得地直到撒勒法;在西法拉中被掳的耶路撒冷人必得地的城邑。

21 必有拯者上到锡安,审判以扫;国度就归耶和华了。

  

Exploring the Meaning of 俄巴底亚书 1

In Obadiah 1, the sole chapter in this book, there's a prophecy of destruction for Edom. The people of the land of Edom -- the Edomites -- were descendants of Esau, so they were cousins and neighbors of the Jewish people.

In Swedenborg's sketch of the internal sense of this part of the Word, (The Inner Meaning of the Prophets and Psalms 213), we find this:

- Edom represents people who are in self-intelligence and who pervert the sense of the letter of the word.
- In Obadiah 1:1-3, They must be combated, because they believe themselves to be more intelligent than others.
- In 1:4-5, They defend falsities by natural light, but they will perish, and with them, the falsities themselves.
- In 1:6, They have pride.
- In 1:7, They have no truths.
- In 1:8-9, They will perish on the day of judgment, because they have oppressed the church.
- In 1:10-14, They destroy the church still further, and this is their delight.
- In 1:15-16, Destruction will come upon them on the day of judgment.
- In 1:17, A new church will come into existence.
- In 1:18, in place of the former church, which is condemned.
- In 1:19-21, The new church will be in the understanding of truth, and those that are in it will be saved.

This story was written around 2600 years ago. There were people alive then who were impressed with their own intelligence. They didn't respect the Word's inner meaning, and twisted its literal meaning. In Obadiah 1:10, we see them even taking delight in destroying true ideas.

Today, maybe it's easier than ever to be impressed by our own intelligence, because we can do so much. We're putting vehicles on Mars, and making robots that can do back flips. But how should we regard the Word? We need to look at its deep meaning, to really understand spiritual truths -- so that we have the fundamental spiritual wisdom to hold and harness our intelligence -- and to be part of the Lord's church, where we're open to receiving his good and truth, and living by it.
