Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
The book of Obadiah--shortest of all the prophetic books--is occupied, in the main, as the superscription suggests, with the fate of Edom. Her people have been humbled, the high and rocky fastnesses in which they trusted have not been able to save them.

Alas for that day! For the day of the LORD is near; it will come like destruction from the Almighty.
