1 Ang pangitain ni Obadias. Ganito ang sabi ng Panginoong Dios tungkol sa Edom, Kami ay nakarinig ng mga balita na mula sa Panginoon, at isang sugo ay sinugo sa mga bansa, na nagsasabi, Magsibangon kayo, at tayo'y mangagtindig laban sa kaniya sa pakikipagbaka.

2 Narito, ginawa kitang maliit sa mga bansa: ikaw ay lubhang hinamak.

3 Dinaya ka ng kapalaluan ng iyong puso, Oh ikaw na tumatahan sa mga bitak ng bato, na ang tahanan ay matayog; na nagsasabi sa kaniyang puso, Sinong magbababa sa akin sa lupa?

4 Bagaman ikaw ay pailanglang sa itaas na parang aguila, at bagaman ang iyong pugad ay malagay sa gitna ng mga bituin, aking ibababa ka mula roon, sabi ng Panginoon.

5 Kung ang mga magnanakaw ay nagsiparoon sa iyo, kung mga mangloloob sa gabi (paano kang nahiwalay!) di baga sila sana'y nangagnakaw hanggang sa sila'y nangagkaroon ng sapat? kung mga mamimitas ng ubas ay nagsiparoon sa iyo, di baga sila sana'y nangagiwan ng laglag na ubas?

6 Paano nasiyasat ang mga bagay ng Esau! paano nasumpungan ang kaniyang mga kayamanang natago!

7 Lahat na lalake na iyong kaalam ay dinala ka sa iyong lakad, hanggang sa hangganan: ang mga lalake na nangasa kapayapaan sa iyo ay dinaya ka, at nanaig laban sa iyo; silang nagsisikain ng iyong tinapay ay naglagay ng silo sa ilalim mo: walang paguunawa sa kaniya.

8 Di ko baga lilipulin sa araw na yaon, sabi ng Panginoon, ang mga pantas na tao sa Edom, at papawiin ang unawa sa bundok ng Esau?

9 At ang iyong mga makapangyarihang tao, Oh Teman, ay manglulupaypay, palibhasa'y bawa't isa'y mahihiwalay sa bundok ng Esau sa pamamagitan ng patayan.

10 Dahil sa karahasan na ginawa sa iyong kapatid na Jacob ay kahihiyan ang tatakip sa iyo, at ikaw ay mahihiwalay magpakailan man.

11 Nang araw na ikaw ay tumayo sa kabilang dako, nang araw na dalhin ng mga taga ibang bayan ang kaniyang kayamanan, at magsipasok ang mga mangingibang bayan sa kaniyang mga pintuang-bayan at pagsapalaran ang Jerusalem, ikaw man ay naging gaya ng isa sa kanila.

12 Huwag ka ngang magmasid sa araw ng iyong kapatid sa kaarawan ng kaniyang kasakunaan, at huwag mong ikagalak ang mga anak ni Juda sa kaarawan ng kanilang pagkabuwal; ni magsalita mang may kapalaluan sa kaarawan ng pagkahapis.

13 Huwag kang pumasok sa pintuan ng aking bayan sa kaarawan ng kanilang kasakunaan; oo, huwag mong masdan ang kanilang pagdadalamhati sa kaarawan ng kanilang kasakunaan, o pakialaman man ninyo ang kanilang kayamanan sa kaarawan ng kanilang kasakunaan.

14 At huwag kang tumayo sa mga salubungang daan na ihiwalay ang kaniya na tumatanan; at huwag mong ibigay ang kaniya na nalabi sa kaarawan ng kapanglawan.

15 Sapagka't ang kaarawan ng Panginoon ay malapit na, laban sa lahat ng bansa: kung ano ang iyong gawin, ay siyang gagawin sa iyo; ang iyong gawa ay babalik sa iyong sariling ulo.

16 Sapagka't kung paanong kayo'y nagsiinom sa aking banal na bundok, gayon magsisiinom na palagi ang lahat na bansa, oo, sila'y magsisiinom, at magsisitungga, at magiging wari baga sila'y hindi nangabuhay.

17 Nguni't sa bundok ng Sion ay doroon yaong nangakatatanan, at magiging banal; at aariin ng sangbahayan ni Jacob ang kaniyang mga pag-aari.

18 At ang sangbahayan ni Jacob ay magiging isang apoy, at ang sangbahayan ni Jose ay isang liyab, at ang sangbahayan ni Esau ay dayami, at sila'y kanilang susunugin, at sila'y susupukin; at walang malalabi sa sangbahayan ni Esau; sapagka't sinalita ng Panginoon.

19 At silang sa Timugan, ay mangagaari ng bundok ng Esau, at silang sa mababang lupa ay ng mga Filisteo; at kanilang aariin ang parang ng Ephraim, at ang parang ng Samaria; at aariin ng Benjamin ang Galaad.

20 At ang mga bihag sa hukbong ito ng mga anak ni Israel na nasa mga taga Canaan, ay magaari ng hanggang sa Sarefat; at ang mga bihag sa Jerusalem na nasa Sepharad ay magaari ng mga bayan ng Timugan.

21 At ang mga tagapagligtas ay magsisisampa sa bundok ng Sion upang hatulan ang bundok ng Esau; at ang kaharian ay magiging sa Panginoon.

Exploring the Meaning of Obadiah 1      

By Joe David and Steve David

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 Obadiah 1:4-5, They defend falsities by natural light, but they will perish, and with them, the falsities themselves.
- In Obadiah 1:6, They have pride.
- In Obadiah 1:7, They have no truths.
- In Obadiah 1:8-9, They will perish on the day of judgment, because they have oppressed the church.
- In Obadiah 1:10-14, They destroy the church still further, and this is their delight.
- In Obadiah 1:15-16, Destruction will come upon them on the day of judgment.
- In Obadiah 1:17, A new church will come into existence.
- In Obadiah 1:18, in place of the former church, which is condemned.
- In Obadiah 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.
