Coke's Commentary on the Holy Bible

Obadiah

- Obadiah

by Thomas Coke

THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET OBADIAH.

THE Scripture gives us no information concerning the life or death of this prophet, of the time when he lived, of his country, or his mission; all that the Jewish writers say concerning him is totally uncertain, and not at all to be relied upon. There is a great similarity in this small portion of his writings which remains, and what is contained in the forty-ninth chapter of Jeremiah; to which we refer the reader.

The destruction of Edom, for their pride, and for their wrong to Jacob. The salvation and victory of Jacob.
