1 Abdijo regėjimas. Taip sako Viešpats Dievas apie Edomą: (Girdėjome žinią iš Viešpaties, pasiuntinys pasiųstas į tautas, ragina: “Pakilkime, eikime prieš jį į karą!”)

2 “Aš padariau tave mažą tarp tautų, tu būsi labai niekinamas.

3 Tavo širdies išdidumas apgavo tave, kuris gyveni uolose, kurio buveinė yra aukštai kalnuose. Tu galvoji: ‘Kas gali nustumti mane?’

4 Nors pakiltum aukštai kaip erelis ir sukrautum sau lizdą tarp žvaigždžių, ir iš ten nustumsiu tave!­sako Viešpats.­

5 Jei vagys ir plėšikai įsilaužtų pas tave nakčia, argi jie nepaimtų, kiek jiems užtenka? Taip, tu nukentėsi! Jei vynuogių rinkėjai ateitų pas tave, argi jie nepaliktų kelių uogų?

6 Kaip buvo apiplėštas Ezavas, iškasti jo paslėpti lobiai!

7 Tavo sąjungininkai nustūmė tave iki sienos. Tie, kurie taikoje su tavimi, apgavo ir nugalėjo tave. Kurie valgė tavo duoną, spendė tau pinkles. Nėra jame supratimo.

8 dienąsako Viešpats,­Aš išnaikinsiu Edomo išminčius ir protinguosius Ezavo kalne.

9 Temane, išsigąs tavo karžygiai, kad visi Ezavo kalne galėtų būti išžudyti.

10 Už tavo broliui Jokūbui padarytą smurtą būsi sunaikintas amžiams.

11 Tada, kai svetimieji plėšė Jokūbo turtus, veržėsi pro miesto vartus, metė burtą dėl Jeruzalės, tu stovėjai su jais ir buvai kaip vienas iš jų!

12 Tau nederėjo gėrėtis tavo brolio nelaime, džiaugtis Judo vaikų sunaikinimu ir išdidžiai kalbėti jų sielvarto dieną.

13 Tau nederėjo įeiti pro mano tautos vartus ir gėrėtis jų kentėjimu bei tiesti rankas į jų turtą jų žuvimo dieną.

14 Tau nederėjo stovėti kryžkelėse ir naikinti pabėgėlius bei išduoti tuos, kurie ištrūko priespaudos metu!

15 Juk Viešpaties diena arti visoms tautoms. Kaip tu darei, taip tau darys­tavo atlygis grįš tau pačiam.

16 Kaip jūs gėrėte mano šventame kalne, taip visos tautos gers nuolatos ir jos pražus lyg nebuvusios.

17 Bet Siono kalne bus išgelbėjimas ir šventumas. Tada Jokūbo namai užvaldys savo nuosavybę.

18 Jokūbo namai bus ugnis, Juozapo namai­liepsna, o Ezavo namai­ražienos. Jie padegs ir sudegins juos, ir niekas iš Ezavo namų nepabėgs,­sako Viešpats.­

19 Tada pietiečiai užvaldys Ezavo kalnyną, o lygumų gyventojai­filistinus. Jie užvaldys Efraimo kalnus ir Samarijos laukus, o Benjaminas­Gileadą.

20 Izraelitai, sugrįžę iš tremties, užvaldys kanaaniečių kraštą iki Sareptos. Jeruzalės tremtiniai, kurie yra Sefarade, užvaldys pietų miestus.

21 Išgelbėtojai ateis į Siono kalną teisti Ezavo kalno. Ir Viešpačiui priklausys karalystė”.

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.
