1 La visione di Abdia. COSÌ ha detto il Signore Iddio ad Edom: Noi abbiamo udito un grido da parte del Signore, ed un ambasciatore è stato mandato fra le genti, dicendo: Movetevi, e leviamoci i contro a lei in battaglia.

2 Ecco, io ti ho fatto piccolo fra le genti; tu sei grandemente sprezzato.

3 La superbia del cuor tuo ti ha ingannato, o tu che abiti nelle fessure delle rocce, che son l’alta tua stanza; che dici nel cuor tuo: Chi mi trarrà giù in terra?

4 Avvegnachè tu avessi innalzato il tuo nido come l’aquila, e l’avessi posto fra le stelle; pur ti trarrò giù di là, dice il Signore.

5 Se quelli che son venuti a te fosser ladri, o ladroni notturni, come saresti stato distrutto? non avrebbero essi rubato quanto fosse lor bastato? se de’ vendemmiatori fosser venuti a te, non ti avrebbero essi lasciati alcuni grappoli?

6 Come sono stati investigati, e ricercati i nascondimenti di Esaù!

7 Tutti i tuoi collegati ti hanno accompagnato fino a’ confini; quelli co’ quali tu vivevi in buona pace ti hanno ingannato, e ti hanno vinto; hanno messo il tuo pane per una trappola sotto di te; non vi è in lui alcuno intendimento.

8 In quel giorno, dice il Signore, non farò io perir di Edom i savi, e del monte di Esaù l’intendimento?

9 I tuoi uomini prodi saranno eziandio spaventati, o Teman; acciocchè sia sterminato ogni uomo dal monte di Esaù, per uccisione.

10 Per la violenza fatta al tuo fratello Giacobbe, vergogna ti coprirà, e sarai sterminato in perpetuo.

11 Nel giorno, che tu gli stavi dirincontro; nel giorno, che gli stranieri menavano in cattività il suo esercito, e i forestieri entravano dentro alle sue porte, e traevano le sorti sopra Gerusalemme, anche tu eri come l’un di loro.

12 Or non istare a riguardare, nel giorno del tuo fratello, nel giorno ch’egli è condotto in terra strana; e non rallegrarti de’ figliuoli di Giuda, nel giorno che periscono; e non allargar la bocca, nel giorno della lor distretta.

13 Non entrar nella porta del mio popolo, nel giorno della loro calamità; e non istare ancora tu a riguardare il suo male, nel giorno della sua calamità; e non metter le mani sopra i suoi beni, nel giorno della sua calamità.

14 E non istartene in su le forche delle strade, per ammazzar quelli d’esso che si salvano; e non mettere in mano de’ nemici quelli d’esso che scampano, nel giorno della distretta.

15 Perciocchè il giorno del Signore contro a tutte le nazioni è vicino; come tu hai fatto, così sarà fatto a te; la tua retribuzione ti ritornerà in sul capo.

16 Perciocchè, siccome voi avete bevuto in sul monte mio santo, così berranno tutte le nazioni continuamente; anzi berranno, e inghiottiranno, e saranno come se non fossero state.

17 Ma nel monte di Sion vi sarà qualche scampo, e quello sarà santo; e la casa di Giacobbe possederà le sue possessioni.

18 E la casa di Giacobbe sarà un fuoco, e la casa di Giuseppe una fiamma; e la casa di Esaù sarà come stoppia; essi si apprenderanno in loro, e li consumeranno; e la casa di Esaù non avrà alcuno che resti in vita; perciocchè il Signore ha parlato.

19 E possederanno la parte meridionale col monte di Esaù; e il piano col paese de’ Filistei; possederanno ancora il territorio di Efraim, e il territorio di Samaria; e Beniamino con Galaad.

20 E questo esercito de’ figliuoli d’Israele, che è stato menato in cattività, possederà quello ch’era de’ Cananei, fino in Sarepta; e que’ di Gerusalemme, che sono stati menati in cattività, che sono in Sefarad, possederanno le città del Mezzodì.

21 E de’ liberatori saliranno nel monte di Sion, per giudicare il monte di Esaù; e il regno sarà del Signore.

  


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.
