1 Tämä on Obadjan näky. Näin sanoo Herra, Herra Edomista: me olemme Herralta sanoman kuulleet, että sanansaattaja on pakanain sekaan lähetetty: nouskaat, ja käykäämme häntä vastaan sotaan!

2 Katso, minä olen sinun alentanut pakanain seassa, ja sangen ylönkatsotuksi tehnyt.

3 Sinun sydämes ylpeys on sinun vietellyt, ettäs vuorten rotkoissa asut, sinun korkeissa linnoissas, ja sanot sydämessäs: kuka taitaa minun syöstä maahan?

4 Vaikkas ylös korkialle menisit niinkuin kotka, ja tekisit pesäs tähtien keskelle; niin minä kuitenkin syöksen sinun alas sieltä, sanoo Herra.

5 Jos varkaat eli raateliat tulevat yöllä sinun tykös, kuinka sinä niin lyöty olet? Eikö he varasta niin paljon, että heillä kyllä on? Jos viinanhakiat tulevat sinun tykös, eikö he jätä viinamarjan oksia?

6 Voi kuinka heidän pitää Esaun tutkiman, ja hänen kätketyt tavaransa etsimän.

7 Kaikki, jotka sinun kanssas liitossa ovat, pitää ajaman sinun pois maaltas; miehet, joihin sinä turvaat, pettävät sinun, ja voittavat sinun; jotka sinun leipäs syövät, pettävät sinun; ei sinulla ole ymmärrystä.

8 Mitämaks, sanoo Herra, minä kadotan silloin Edomin viisaat ja ymmärryksen Esaun vuorelta.

9 Sillä sinun väkeväs, Teman, pitää hämmästymän, että heidän kaikkein pitää murhasta Esaun vuorella hukkuman.

10 Sen vääryyden tähden, jonka sinä veljelles Jakobille tehnyt olet, pitää sinun häpiään tuleman, ja ijankaikkisesti hävitettämän.

11 Silloin sinä seisoit häntä vastaan, kuin muukalaiset hänen sotaväkensä veivät pois vangittuna, ja vieraat menivät sisälle hänen porteistansa, ja Jerusalemista arvan heittivät; silloin sinä olit niinkuin yksi heistä.

12 Ei sinun pidä mielelläs katseleman veljes viheliäisyyden aikaa, eikä riemuitseman Juudalaisten surkeuden aikana, ei myös sinun suus pidä niin suuria sanoja puhuman heidän tuskansa aikana.

13 Ei sinun pidä menemän sisälle minun kansani porteista heidän surkeutensa aikana, eikä mielelläs katseleman heidän onnettomuuttansa heidän vaivansa aikana, eikä kättäs ojentaman heidän kaluunsa heidän surkeutensa aikana.

14 Ei sinun pidä teiden haaroissa seisoman, murhaamassa heidän pakenevaisiansa, ei myös kiinni ottaman heidän jääneitänsä ahdistuksensa aikana.

15 Sillä Herran päivä on läsnä kaikkia pakanoita; niinkuin sinä tehnyt olet, niin pitää sinulle jälleen tapahtuman, ja niinkuin sinä ansainnut olet, niin pitää sinun pääs päälle jälleen tuleman.

16 Sillä niinkuin te olette minun pyhällä vuorellani juoneet, niin pitää kaikki pakanat alati juoman, ryyppäämän ja nielemän, ja oleman niinkuin ei he olleetkaan olisi.

17 Mutta Zionin vuorella pitää vapaus oleman, ja heidän pitää pyhät oleman, ja Jakobin huoneen pitää perintönsä omistaman.

18 Ja Jakobin huone pitää tuli oleman, ja Josephin huonen tulen liekki, mutta Esaun huone kortena, jonka heidän pitää sytyttämän ja kuluttaman, niin ettei Esaun huoneesta pidä mitään jäämän; sillä Herra on sen puhunut.

19 Ja heidän pitää perimän koko etelänpuolisen maan, ynnä Esaun vuoren kanssa, ja lakeuden Philistealaisten kanssa, ja heidän pitää myös Ephraimin ja Samarian kedon omistaman, ja Benjaminin Gileadin.

20 Ja ne viedyt pois Israelin lasten sotaväestä, jotka Kanaanealaisten seassa hamaan Sarpattiin asti ovat, ja ne viedyt pois Jerusalemin kaupungista, jotka Sepharadissa ovat, pitää kaupungit etelään päin omistaman.

21 Ja vapahtajat pitää Zionin vuorelle tuleman tuomitsemaan Esaun vuorta; ja niin pitää valtakunta Herran oleman.

  


Exploring the Meaning of Obadiah 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.
