General Information

The Book of Obadiah is the fourth book of the Twelve Minor Prophets in the Old Testament of the Bible. This brief collection of sayings reflects the fall of Jerusalem in 587 BC. Obadiah ("servant of the Lord") is particularly vehement toward the Edomites, long - standing enemies of Israel who cooperated with the Babylonian conquerors. He calls down divine judgment on the Edomites and predicts a final day of return from exile and triumph over Edom. The date of final compilation is uncertain.
