1 חזון עבדיה כה־אמר אדני יהוה לאדום שמועה שמענו מאת יהוה וציר בגוים שלח קומו ונקומה עליה למלחמה׃

2 הנה קטן נתתיך בגוים בזוי אתה מאד׃

3 זדון לבך השיאך שכני בחגוי־סלע מרום שבתו אמר בלבו מי יורדני ארץ׃

4 אם־תגביה כנשר ואם־בין כוכבים שים קנך משם אורידך נאם־יהוה׃

5 אם־גנבים באו־לך אם־שודדי לילה איך נדמיתה הלוא יגנבו דים אם־בצרים באו לך הלוא ישאירו עללות׃

6 איך נחפשו עשו נבעו מצפניו׃

7 עד־הגבול שלחוך כל אנשי בריתך השיאוך יכלו לך אנשי שלמך לחמך ישימו מזור תחתיך אין תבונה בו׃

8 הלוא ביום ההוא נאם־יהוה והאבדתי חכמים מאדום ותבונה מהר עשו׃

9 וחתו גבוריך תימן למען יכרת־איש מהר עשו מקטל׃

10 מחמס אחיך יעקב תכסך בושה ונכרת לעולם׃

11 ביום עמדך מנגד ביום שבות זרים חילו ונכרים באו [כ= שערו] [ק= שעריו] ועל־ירושלם ידו גורל גם־אתה כאחד מהם׃

12 ואל־תרא ביום־אחיך ביום נכרו ואל־תשמח לבני־יהודה ביום אבדם ואל־תגדל פיך ביום צרה׃

13 אל־תבוא בשער־עמי ביום אידם אל־תרא גם־אתה ברעתו ביום אידו ואל־תשלחנה בחילו ביום אידו׃

14 ואל־תעמד על־הפרק להכרית את־פליטיו ואל־תסגר שרידיו ביום צרה׃

15 כי־קרוב יום־יהוה על־כל־הגוים כאשר עשית יעשה לך גמלך ישוב בראשך׃

16 כי כאשר שתיתם על־הר קדשי ישתו כל־הגוים תמיד ושתו ולעו והיו כלוא היו׃

17 ובהר ציון תהיה פליטה והיה קדש וירשו בית יעקב את מורשיהם׃

18 והיה בית־יעקב אש ובית יוסף להבה ובית עשו לקש ודלקו בהם ואכלום ולא־יהיה* שריד לבית עשו כי יהוה דבר׃

19 וירשו הנגב את־הר עשו והשפלה את־פלשתים וירשו את־שדה אפרים ואת שדה שמרון ובנימן את־הגלעד׃

20 וגלת החל־הזה לבני ישראל אשר־כנענים עד־צרפת וגלת ירושלם אשר בספרד ירשו את ערי הנגב׃

21 ועלו מושעים בהר ציון לשפט את־הר עשו והיתה ליהוה המלוכה׃

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.
