Book of Obadiah

Written in Palestine about 899-795 B.C. The book shows a vision concerning Edom being punished in the immediate future and also in the future day of the Lord, for her sin of mistreating Israel. Edom had always been bitter against God's people; so He predicted the destruction of that nation in this prophecy and the eternal possession of their land by Israel. The focus of the book was to demonstrate and predict once more the blessings and curses of the Abrahamic covenant—the promise to bless them that bless, and curse them that curse the descendants of Abraham (Obadiah 1:10-21 with Genesis 12:1-3).
