About the Book of Obadiah

There were many wars between the Israelites and the people from Edom. Genesis 27 and Numbers 20:14-21 tell us why these wars happened.
God gives Obadiah a message for the Israelites. He does this after people from Babylon have destroyed Jerusalem. People from Edom helped the people from Babylon. God is angry with the people from Edom, so he warns them in this message to Obadiah. In the message, God also tells the Israelites that he remembers them. And he remembers what the people from Edom did. God tells the Israelites that he will punish the people from Edom.
