All the men in your confederacy Shall force you to the border; The men at peace with you Shall deceive you and prevail against you. Those who eat your bread shall lay a trap for you. No one is aware of it. Then your mighty men, O Teman, shall be dismayed, To the end that everyone from the mountains of Esau May be cut off by slaughter.

Would they not have stolen till they had enough? Obadiah says that the judgment coming upon Edom will be far worse than what happens when robbers come and steal, because they usually stop when they have enough.

The judgment coming against Edom will be far more complete everyone from the mountains of Esau may be cut off by slaughter. The Edomites were proud of their great natural defenses, but God would break their pride and bring them low. Men at peace with you shall deceive you : When God brings judgment against Edom, they will know the sting of treachery against them. The alliances they once trusted in would come to nothing, and they would be double-crossed by their former friends.
The Edomites were proud of their political alliances, but God would break their pride and bring them low. Destroy the wise men from Edom, and understanding from the mountains of Esau : The Edomites were renowned for their great wisdom, but God would bring such great judgment that even their wise men would be destroyed.
The Edomites were proud of their reputation for wisdom, but God would break their pride and bring them low. In the day that you stood on the other side; In the day that strangers carried captive his forces, When foreigners entered his gates And cast lots for Jerusalem; Even you were as one of them. But you should not have gazed on the day of your brother In the day of his captivity; Nor should you have rejoiced over the children of Judah In the day of their destruction; Nor should you have spoken proudly In the day of distress.
You should not have entered the gate of My people In the day of their calamity.
1 Reis 18,1 Kings 18 OL;NIV - Elias e Obadias - Três anos mais tarde - Bible Gateway
Indeed, you should not have gazed on their affliction In the day of their calamity, Nor laid hands on their substance In the day of their calamity. You should not have stood at the crossroads To cut off those among them who escaped; Nor should you have delivered up those among them who remained In the day of distress. For your violence against your brother Jacob : The family lines of both Israel and Edom go back to a common ancestor — Isaac.
Esau Edom was the brother of Jacob Israel. Some sins become worse depending on whom we sin against. It is sin to treat someone else badly; it is worse to treat a brother or sister in Jesus badly. It is sin to speak harshly to anyone; it is worse to speak harshly to your husband or wife. In that day you stood on the other side : What did Edom do when strangers attacked Judah and foreigners entered his gates?
Sometimes doing nothing is a great sin. Numbers speaks of the sin that will find you out , and the sin it speaks of is the sin of doing nothing. When they encountered people from Judah fleeing southward from the attacking army, they killed them cut off or gave them over to the enemy as prisoners delivered up those among them who remained. Are we guilty of the same — or worse — when we see others in distress or calamity?
These two nations began with Jacob and Esau. What Edom is being judged for is failure to obey one of the underlying principles of the law. The summary of the law was to love God and to love your neighbor. Even though Edom was not under the law of Moses, they still were responsible before God because their conscience should have told them they were violating the law of love. When Judah was being attacked by Gentiles, Edom should have come to help his brother, but he stood aloof. He condoned the evil that was taking place. I think this shows us an interesting principle: It is common in our day to not want to get involved and there are many stories about people standing around, watching a crime be committed and not doing anything about it.
This is not an amoral action, it is immoral. This is like people who loot a city after a hurricane or something. If you can have degrees of evil, this is one of the lowest forms of theft.
It is taking advantage of another's calamity. When the Israelites fled from their enemies and headed to the south, Edom was there to capture the fugitives and then they sold the survivors as slaves. What is the Day of the Lord? It is the time when God will judge the enemies of Judah. When is it? Before we answer this question we need to understand what the prophets often had in mind as they spoke or wrote their visions.
The Day of the Lord occurs at the 2nd coming of Christ when He comes in judgment on the nations for their rebellion against God and mistreatment of God's people. It is a little confusing as your read the prophets to determine which part of their prophecy is going to be fulfilled in the near future and which will be fulfilled during the tribulation or the millennium.
Perhaps the following drawing will show what the prophet saw and how the events are often separated in time. This concept was first set forth by Chrsyostum in the 4th Century. Perhaps this is what is happening in our next few verses because in one sentence Obadiah is talking about Edom and the next he is talking about all the nations.aresinsee.tk
The Vision of Obadiah
The references to Edom's destruction would be the near fulfillment and the references to all the nations would be the far fulfillment. Just as Edom had cut off Jerusalem, so they would be cut off. Just like drinking too much makes you reel and stagger so does the wounded and dying soldier stagger around before he falls. They are really going to be staggering.
The book illustrates the Lord's care for those who belong to him and reveals his character as a just God who will judge evil and reward fidelity. By Mark Giszczak.

Servant of God is not considered a canonical title in a strict sense by the Catholic Church as for instance Venerable or Blessed are , but only a technical term used in the process of beatification. Hence, any of the faithful can be named a "Servant of God" in a larger frame of meaning. A guru or sat guru in various traditions of Hinduism is given the name Dasa ,  or "servant of God". A teacher also can be called uda ka das , which means "the servant of God".
In Tamil , tontai , dasa , servant, or "slave," commonly are used to refer to devotees of Vishnu or Krishna. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Stages of canonization in the Catholic Church. Catholicism portal Christianity portal Saints portal.
