1 La vision d'Abdias. Ainsi a dit le Seigneur l'Eternel touchant Edom : Nous avons ouï une publication de par l'Eternel, et un Envoyé a été dépêché parmi les nations, [et elles ont dit] : Courage levons-Nous contre lui pour le combattre.

2 Voici, je te rendrai petit entre les nations, tu seras fort méprisé.

3 L'orgueil de ton cœur t'a séduit, toi qui habites dans les fentes des rochers, qui sont ta haute demeure, et qui dis en ton cœur : Qui est-ce qui me renversera par terre?

4 Quand tu aurais élevé ton nid comme l'aigle, et quand même tu l'aurais mis entre les étoiles, je te jetterai de là par terre, dit l'Eternel.

5 Sont-ce des larrons qui sont entrés chez toi, ou des voleurs de nuit? Comment [donc] as-tu été rasé? N'eussent-ils pas dérobé jusqu'à ce qu'ils en eussent eu assez? Si des vendangeurs fussent entrés chez toi, n'eussent-ils pas laissé quelque grappillage?

6 Comment a été fouillé Esaü? Comment ont été examinés ses lieux secrets?

7 Tous tes alliés t'ont conduit jusqu'à la frontière; ceux qui étaient en paix avec toi t'ont trompé, et ont eu le dessus sur toi; ceux [qui mangeaient] ton pain t'ont donné le coup par-dessous, sans qu'on l'aperçût.

8 Ne sera-ce pas en ce temps-là, dit l'Eternel, que je ferai périr les sages au milieu d'Edom, et la prudence dans la montagne d'Esaü?

9 Tes hommes forts seront aussi étonnés, ô Téman! afin que les hommes soient retranchés de la montagne d'Esaü, à force de les [y] tuer.

10 La honte te couvrira, et tu seras retranché pour jamais, à cause de la violence [faite] à ton frère Jacob.

11 Lorsque tu te tenais vis-à-vis quand les étrangers menaient son armée en captivité, et que les forains entraient dans ses portes, et qu'ils jetaient le sort sur Jérusalem, tu étais aussi comme l'un d'eux.

12 Mais tu ne devais pas prendre plaisir à voir la journée de ton frère quand il a été livré aux étrangers, et tu ne devais pas te réjouir sur les enfants de Juda au jour qu'ils ont été détruits, et tu ne [les] devais pas braver au jour de la détresse.

13 Et tu ne devais pas entrer dans la porte de mon peuple au jour de sa calamité, et tu ne devais pas prendre plaisir, toi, dis-je, à voir son mal au jour de sa calamité, et [tes mains] ne se devaient pas avancer sur son bien, au jour de sa calamité.

14 Et tu ne te devais pas tenir sur les passages, pour exterminer ses réchappés; ni livrer ceux qui étaient restés, au jour de la détresse.

15 Car la journée de l'Eternel est proche sur toutes les nations; comme tu as fait, il te sera ainsi fait; ta récompense retournera sur ta tête.

16 Car comme vous avez bu sur la montagne de ma sainteté [la coupe de ma fureur], ainsi toutes les nations [la] boiront sans interruption; oui, elles [la] boiront, et [l']avaleront, et elles seront comme si elles n'avaient point été.

17 Mais il y aura des réchappés sur la montagne de Sion, et elle sera sainte, et la maison de Jacob possédera ses possessions.

18 Et la maison de Jacob sera un feu, et la maison de Joseph une flamme, et la maison d'Esaü du chaume; ils s'allumeront parmi eux, et les consumeront; et il n'y aura rien de reste dans la maison d'Esaü; car l'Eternel a parlé.

19 Ils posséderont le Midi, [savoir] la montagne d'Esaü; et la campagne, [savoir] les Philistins, et ils posséderont le territoire d'Ephraïm, et le territoire de Samarie; et Benjamin [possédera] Galaad.

20 Et ces bandes des enfants d'Israël qui auront été transportés, [posséderont] ce qui était des Cananéens, jusqu'à Sarepta; et ceux de Jérusalem qui auront été transportés, [posséderont] ce qui [est] jusqu'à Sépharad, ils le posséderont avec les villes du Midi.

21 Car les libérateurs monteront en la montagne de Sion, pour juger la montagne d'Esaü; et le Royaume sera à l'Eternel.

  

Exploring the Meaning of Abdias 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.
