Obadiah was a prophet (holy
man). The Book of Obadiah is in the Bible (Old Testament).
The Book of Obadiah
contains a short message about the country called Edom. The people from Edom were relatives of the people from Israel. But the
inhabitants of Edom refused
to help when the people from Israel
suffered. So, God would punish the people from Edom for this evil deed. God would
destroy their country.
In the future, people who
trust God will live in Edom.
