Obadiah-Detailed Outline
A. Introduction
Obadiah 1:1 Words of the Lord about Edom are given
B. Judgment on Edom
Obadiah 1:2-4 Images of high and low: Pride brought low. The nation will be vastly reduced in size and influence. Their pride in their strength and self-sufficiency has deluded them. God is done with that. The proud will be humbled; the lowly will be exalted.
Obadiah 1:5-7 A vision of the Judgment against Edom. Edom’s goods have all been plundered. Those whom she has trusted will betray Edom. No one will come to rescue her.
Obadiah 1:8-10 A destruction of Wise men is seen. Those Edomites with understanding will all perish. The nation will no longer be noted for its wisdom, but rather for its shame in doing violence to Judah.
Obadiah 1:11-14 The charges against Edom are seen. They acted like strangers and did not help when Judah was conquered. They took advantage of the situation, gloating and profiting from Judah’s pain. They moved in like vultures. They also attacked fugitives and survivors in their day of trouble
C. The Day of the Lord
Obadiah 1:15-16 The coming of the Day of the Lord. Their deeds will be returned upon their own heads. Conquests of Judah and Edom both point to the “Day of the Lord”. Judah always assumed the “Day” would bring defeat for enemies. Now, they realized they were also being judged for their disobedience. Metaphor of “drinking” the cup of wrath is oftentimes used as experience of judgment…all nations will experience this.
Obadiah 1:17-18 A remnant for Judah. Judah has experienced judgment in the form of exile to Babylon. But it will not be the end for Judah…a remnant will be left. North and south will be reconciled. In the end, they will consume Edom…and there will be none left.
Obadiah 1:19-21 Kingdom of Israel: People of Israel will once again occupy the land. The northern nation would be restored and reunited with Israel. No one would threaten Israel’s borders. God would ultimately control all nations “and the kingdom will be the Lord’s”.
