Mystically, Christ and his apostles, and other preachers of the gospel. To judge - To avenge Israel upon Edom. The Lord's - The God of Israel, Jehovah, shall be honoured, obeyed, and worshipped by all.


Discussion for Obadiah 1:21

  • Bill Hanson for verse 21
    I have yet to see a good in-depth commentary on the book of Obadiah, not even a You Tube video. What I have seen explains it as a book of history rather than futuristic prophecy.

    Since Chapter 1 predicts these events to take place just prior to the "Day of The Lord" (Tribulation), it is obvious to me that it's futuristic. I am also of the belief that it's akin and detailed version to Psalm 83.
