Obadiah 1:1-1:21

Obadiah is a short book. One chapter says it all.
He wrote about a nation, God explained, would surely fall.

The nation was called Edom. Do you know from where they came?
Remember Jacob's brother? Esau was his name.

God changed Jacob's name to Israel so these nations were like brothers.
Israel and Edom, they were different from the others.

God would judge the heathen nations when they harmed his chosen few.
But Edom should have helped them. Isn't that what you would do?

Help your brother and his children. Not hurt them in a war.
But Edom fought their brothers and God said, they'll be no more.

As you did unto your family, so God said I'll do to you.
And when I am done with Edom, they'll not even be a few.

I'll destroy the house of Esau. The house of Jacob shall prevail.
And today there is no Edom. God's promise does not fail.
