    Verse 10: Esau and his offspring showed a violent spirit toward his brother Jacob and his offspring. For this unjust treatment, they would have to face the consequences.

    Hey
    Debbie, I think you are absolutely right! We should have respect towards God. Just look in the first book in the Bible, all that he made was for us. :) I am grateful that we have a loving God.
  • Rev Franklin Miller
    Please all that leave comments, capitalize "God" when you are referring to the most High Lord of lords and King of kings. Obadiah gave this respect for Him and who are we that cannot or will not?

    This chap. - all about Edom/Essau. I've done some reading on Petra/Edom south of the Dead sea. It's a HUGE red rock structure, carved by hand thousands of years ago, by the Edomites, Essau's descendants. Essau means red and his descendants carved a red city. Anyway, the physical Edom/Petra was destroyed, just as Amos says, by God. But try to tell that to atheist archaeologists.
