1 Obadjan näky. Herra, Herra sanoo Edomista näin: Me olemme kuulleet sanoman Herralta, ja sanansaattaja on lähetetty kansakuntiin: "Nouskaa, nouskaamme sotaan sitä vastaan!"

2 Katso, vähäiseksi minä teen sinut kansojen seassa, ylen halveksittu olet sinä oleva.

3 Sinun sydämesi ylpeys on pettänyt sinut, joka asut kallionrotkoissa, istut korkealla ja sanot sydämessäsi: "Kuka voi syöstä minut maahan?"

4 Vaikka tekisit pesäsi korkealle niinkuin kotka ja vaikka sen sija olisi tähtien välissä, minä syöksen sinut sieltä alas, sanoo Herra.

5 Jos varkaat tulisivat kimppuusi, jos yölliset rosvot, kuinka voisit tulla niin hävitetyksi: eivätkö he varastaisi vain sen, mitä tarvitsevat? Jos viininkorjaajat tulisivat luoksesi, eivätkö he jättäisi jälkikorjuuta?

6 Mutta kuinka onkaan Eesau läpikotaisin etsitty, hänen kätkönsä pengotut!

7 Sinut on ajettu rajalle asti, kaikki liittolaisesi ovat sinut pettäneet. Ystäväsi ovat vieneet sinusta voiton, ovat panneet taritsemasi leivän paulaksi sinun eteesi. -Ei ole hänessä taitoa.

8 Totisesti, sinä päivänä, sanoo Herra, minä lopetan viisaat Edomista ja taidon Eesaun vuorelta.

9 Ja sinun sankarisi, Teeman, kauhistuvat, niin että viimeinenkin mies häviää Eesaun vuorelta murhatöitten tähden.

10 Väkivallan tähden veljeäsi Jaakobia kohtaan peittää sinut häpeä, ja sinut hävitetään ikiajoiksi.

11 Sinä päivänä, jona sinäkin olit läsnä, päivänä, jona vieraat veivät pois hänen rikkautensa, jona muukalaiset tunkeutuivat sisään hänen porteistaan ja heittivät Jerusalemista arpaa, olit myöskin sinä niinkuin yksi heistä.

12 Mutta älä katso iloiten veljesi päivää, hänen onnettomuutensa päivää; älä ilku juutalaisia heidän turmionsa päivänä äläkä suullasi suurentele ahdistuksen päivänä.

13 Älä tunkeudu sisään minun kansani portista heidän hätäpäivänänsä. Älä katso iloiten, myös sinä, hänen onnettomuuttansa hänen hätäpäivänänsä. Älä ojenna kättäsi hänen rikkauteensa hänen hätäpäivänänsä.

14 Älä seiso tienhaarassa hävittämässä hänen pelastuneitansa. Älä luovuta hänen pakoonpäässeitänsä ahdistuksen päivänä.

15 Sillä lähellä on Herran päivä kaikkia pakanakansoja: Niinkuin sinä olet tehnyt, niin sinulle tehdään; kosto sinun teostasi kohtaa sinun omaa päätäsi.

16 Sillä niinkuin te olette juoneet minun pyhällä vuorellani, niin tulevat kaikki pakanakansat juomaan ainiaan: he juovat ja särpivät ja ovat, niinkuin ei heitä olisi ollutkaan.

17 Mutta Siionin vuorella saavat olla pelastuneet, ja se on oleva pyhä, ja Jaakobin heimo on perivä perintönsä.

18 Jaakobin heimo on oleva tuli ja Joosefin heimo liekki, mutta Eesaun heimo kuin olki, ja ne polttavat sen ja kuluttavat sen; eikä jää pakoonpäässyttä Eesaun heimosta. Sillä Herra on puhunut.

19 Ja he ottavat perinnöksensä Etelämaan ynnä Eesaun vuoren, Alankomaan ynnä filistealaiset; he ottavat perinnöksensä Efraimin maan ja Samarian maan, Benjaminin ynnä Gileadin.

20 Ja tästä väestä, israelilaisista, viedyt pakkosiirtolaiset ottavat perinnöksensä kanaanilaiset Sarpatiin asti. Ja Jerusalemin pakkosiirtolaiset, jotka ovat Sefaradissa, ottavat perinnöksensä Etelämaan kaupungit.

21 Pelastajat nousevat Siionin vuorelle tuomitsemaan Eesaun vuorta. Ja kuninkuus on oleva Herran.

  


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.
