    I believe that the lord is not through with edom and Esau. God says do not touch the apple of God's eye. He will avenge his people because when they saw their brother in trouble they went Into their country and brought more destruction in their lives. They laughed at their brother and for that they will pay says the lord.

    I believe through Obadiah God is trying to tell us that we are vain people and we see everyones sins but ours sometimes.we forget that God is in charge.when when we leave God out then he convicts us to rember that he is the almighty and without him our lives are distarous.
  • Patrick Ogbogu for verse 17
    Zion is a place where inheritance is handed over to you. It is a place of deliverance from every oppression of hell, a place where you are cleaned up and whatever belongs to you is delivered to you
