1 Gesicht Obadjas. So spricht der Herr, Jehova, von Edom: Eine Kunde haben wir von Jehova gehört, und ein Bote ist unter die Nationen gesandt worden: "Machet euch auf, und laßt uns wider dasselbe aufstehen zum Kriege!"

2 Siehe, ich habe dich klein gemacht unter den Nationen, du bist sehr verachtet.

3 Der Übermut deines Herzens hat dich verführt, der du in Felsenklüften, auf hohem Sitze wohnst und in deinem Herzen sprichst: Wer wird mich zur Erde hinabstürzen?

4 Wenn du dein Nest auch hoch baust wie der Adler, und wenn es zwischen die Sterne gesetzt wäre: ich werde dich von dort hinabstürzen, spricht Jehova.

5 Wenn Diebe über dich gekommen wären, wenn nächtliche Räuber, wie bist du vernichtet! würden sie nicht gestohlen haben nach ihrer Genüge? Wenn Winzer über dich gekommen wären, würden sie nicht eine Nachlese übriggelassen haben?

6 Wie sind die von Esau durchsucht, ausgeforscht ihre verborgenen Schätze!

7 Alle deine Bundesgenossen haben dich bis zur Grenze geschickt; betrogen, überwältigt haben dich deine Freunde, die dein Brot aßen; sie legten eine Schlinge unter dich. Es ist kein Verstand in ihm.

8 Werde ich nicht an jenem Tage, spricht Jehova, die Weisen aus Edom vertilgen und den Verstand vom Gebirge Esaus?

9 Und deine Helden, Teman, werden verzagen, auf daß jedermann vom Gebirge Esaus ausgerottet werde durch Ermordung.

10 Wegen der an deinem Bruder Jakob verübten Gewalttat wird Schande dich bedecken, und du wirst ausgerottet werden auf ewig.

11 An dem Tage, da du gegenüber standest, an dem Tage, da Fremde sein Vermögen hinwegführten, und Ausländer zu seinen Toren einzogen und über Jerusalem das Los warfen, da warst auch du wie einer von ihnen.

12 Und du solltest nicht auf den Tag deines Bruders sehen am Tage seines Mißgeschicks, und dich nicht freuen über die Kinder Juda am Tage ihres Untergangs, noch dein Maul aufsperren am Tage der Bedrängnis;

13 du solltest nicht in das Tor meines Volkes einziehen am Tage seiner Not, und du, auch du, nicht auf sein Unglück sehen am Tage seiner Not, noch deine Hand ausstrecken nach seinem Vermögen am Tage seiner Not;

14 und du solltest nicht am Kreuzwege stehen, um seine Flüchtlinge zu vertilgen, und solltest seine Entronnenen nicht ausliefern am Tage der Bedrängnis.

15 Denn der Tag Jehovas ist nahe über alle Nationen: wie du getan hast, wird dir getan werden; dein Tun wird auf dein Haupt zurückkehren.

16 Denn gleichwie ihr getrunken habt auf meinem heiligen Berge, so werden beständig trinken alle Nationen; ja, sie werden trinken und schlürfen, und werden sein wie solche, die nie gewesen sind.

17 Aber auf dem Berge Zion wird Errettung sein, und er wird heilig sein; und die vom Hause Jakob werden ihre Besitzungen wieder in Besitz nehmen.

18 Und das Haus Jakob wird ein Feuer sein, und das Haus Joseph eine Flamme, und das Haus Esau zu Stoppeln; und sie werden unter ihnen brennen und sie verzehren. Und das Haus Esau wird keinen Übriggebliebenen haben, denn Jehova hat geredet.

19 Und die vom Süden werden das Gebirge Esaus, und die von der Niederung die Philister in Besitz nehmen; und sie werden das Gefilde Ephraims und das Gefilde Samarias, und Benjamin wird Gilead in Besitz nehmen;

20 und die Weggeführten dieses Heeres der Kinder Israel werden in Besitz nehmen, was den Kanaanitern gehört bis nach Zarpath hin; und die Weggeführten von Jerusalem, welche in Sepharad sind, die Städte des Südens.

21 Und es werden Retter auf den Berg Zion ziehen, um das Gebirge Esaus zu richten; und das Reich wird Jehova gehören.

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.
