1 Dies ist das Gesicht Obadjas. So spricht der HERR HERR von Edom: Wir haben vom HERRN gehört, daß eine Botschaft unter die Heiden gesandt sei: Wohlauf, und laßt uns wider sie streiten.

2 Siehe, ich habe dich gering gemacht unter den Heiden und sehr verachtet.

3 Der Hochmut deines Herzens hat dich betrogen, weil du in der Felsen Klüften wohnst, in deinen hohen Schlössern, und sprichst in deinem Herzen: Wer will mich zu Boden stoßen?

4 Wenn du gleich in die Höhe führest wie ein Adler und machtest dein Nest zwischen den Sternen, dennoch will ich dich von dort herunterstürzen, spricht der HERR.

5 Wenn Diebe oder Räuber zu Nacht über dich kommen werden, wie sollst du so zunichte werden! Ja, sie sollen genug stehlen; und wenn die Weinleser über dich kommen, so sollen sie dir kein Nachlesen übriglassen.

6 Wie sollen sie dann Esau ausforschen und seine Schätze suchen!

7 Alle deine eigenen Bundesgenossen werden dich zum Lande hinausstoßen; die Leute, auf die du deinen Trost setztest, werden dich betrügen und überwältigen; die dein Brot essen, werden dich verraten, ehe du es merken wirst.

8 Was gilt's? spricht der HERR, ich will zur selben Zeit die Weisen zu Edom zunichte machen und die Klugheit auf dem Gebirge Esau.

9 Und deine Starken zu Theman sollen zagen, auf daß alle auf dem Gebirge Esau ausgerottet werden durch Morden.

10 Um des Frevels willen, an deinem Bruder Jakob begangen, sollst du zu Schanden werden und ewiglich ausgerottet sein.

11 Zu der Zeit, da du wider ihn standest, da die Fremden sein Heer gefangen wegführten und Ausländer zu seinen Toren einzogen und über Jerusalem das Los warfen, da warst du gleich wie deren einer.

12 Du sollst nicht mehr so deine Lust sehen an deinem Bruder zur Zeit seines Elends und sollst dich nicht freuen über die Kinder Juda zur Zeit ihres Jammers und sollst mit deinem Maul nicht so stolz reden zur Zeit Ihrer Angst;

13 du sollst nicht zum Tor meines Volkes einziehen zur Zeit ihres Jammers; du sollst nicht deine Lust sehen an ihrem Unglück zur Zeit ihres Jammers; du sollst nicht nach seinem Gut greifen zur Zeit seines Jammers;

14 du sollst nicht stehen an den Wegscheiden, seine Entronnenen zu morden; du sollst seine übrigen nicht verraten zur Zeit der Angst.

15 Denn der Tag des HERRN ist nahe über alle Heiden. Wie du getan hast, soll dir wieder geschehen; und wie du verdient hast, so soll dir's wieder auf deinen Kopf kommen.

16 Denn wie ihr auf meinem heiligen Berge getrunken habt, so sollen alle Heiden täglich trinken; ja, sie sollen's aussaufen und verschlingen und sollen sein, als wären sie nie gewesen.

17 Aber auf dem Berge Zion wird eine Errettung sein, und er soll heilig sein, und das Haus Jakob soll seine Besitzer besitzen.

18 Und das Haus Jakob soll ein Feuer werden und das Haus Joseph eine Flamme, aber das Haus Esau Stroh; das werden sie anzünden und verzehren, daß dem Hause Esau nichts übrigbleibe; denn der HERR hat's geredet.

19 Und die gegen Mittag werden das Gebirge Esau, und die in den Gründen werden die Philister besitzen; ja sie werden das Feld Ephraims und das Feld Samarias besitzen, und Benjamin das Gebirge Gilead.

20 Und die Vertriebenen dieses Heeres der Kinder Israel, so unter den Kanaanitern bis gen Zarpath sind, und die Vertriebenen der Stadt Jerusalem, die zu Sepharad sind, werden die Städte gegen Mittag besitzen.

21 Und es werden Heilande heraufkommen auf den Berg Zion, das Gebirge Esau zu richten; und das Königreich wird des HERRN sein.

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.
