    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:10

    ¶ Por tu violencia en contra de tu hermano Jacob te cubrirá vergí¼enza, y serás talado para siempre.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Obadiah 1:10

    Verse 10. For thy
    violence against thy brother Jacob] By this term the Israelites in general are understood; for the two brothers, - Jacob, from whom sprang the Jews, and Esau, from whom sprang the Idumeans or Edomites, - are here put for the whole people or descendants of both.

    We need not look for particular cases of the violence of the Edomites against the Jews. Esau, their founder, was not more inimical to his brother Jacob, who deprived him of his birthright, than the Edomites uniformly were to the Jews. See 2 Chronicles xxviii. 17, 18. They had even stimulated the Chaldeans, when they took Jerusalem, to destroy the temple, and level it with the ground. See Psa. cxxxvii. 7.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 10. For [thy] violence against thy brother Jacob , etc.] Which is aggravated: by being against Jacob, an honest plain hearted man, and whom the Lord loved; his brother, his own brother, a twin brother, yea, his only brother; yet this is to be understood, not so much of the violence of Esau against Jacob personally, though there is an allusion to that; as of the violence of the posterity of the one against the posterity of the other; and not singly of the violence shown at the destruction of Jerusalem, but in general of the anger they bore, the wrath they showed, and the injuries they did to their brethren the Jews, on all occasions, whenever they had an opportunity, of which the following is a notorious instance; and for which more especially, as well as for the above things, they are threatened with ruin: shame shall cover thee ; as a garment; they shall be filled with blushing, and covered with confusion, when convicted of their sin, and punished for it: and thou shalt be cut off for ever ; from being a nation; either by Nebuchadnezzar; or in the times of the Maccabees by Hyrcanus, when they were subdued by the Jews, and were incorporated among them, and never since was a separate people or kingdom.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-16 - This
    prophecy is against Edom. Its destruction seems to have bee typical, as their father Esau's rejection; and to refer to the destruction of the enemies of the gospel church. See the prediction of the success of that war; Edom shall be spoiled, and brought down. All the enemies of God's church shall be disappointed in the things the stay themselves on. God can easily lay those low who magnify and exal themselves; and will do it. Carnal security ripens men for ruin, an makes the ruin worse when it comes. Treasures on earth cannot be s safely laid up but that thieves may break through and steal; it is therefore our wisdom to lay up for ourselves treasures in heaven. Thos that make flesh their trust, arm it against themselves. The God of ou covenant will never deceive us: but if we trust men with whom we joi ourselves, it may prove to us a wound and dishonour. God will justl deny those understanding to keep out of danger, who will not use their understandings to keep out of sin. All violence, all unrighteousness is sin; but it makes the violence far worse, if it be done against an of God's people. Their barbarous conduct towards Judah and Jerusalem is charged upon them. In reflecting on ourselves, it is good to consider what we should have done; to compare our practice with the Scripture rule. Sin, thus looked upon in the glass of the commandment will appear exceedingly sinful. Those have a great deal to answer for who are idle spectators of the troubles of their neighbours, when able to be active helpers. Those make themselves poor, who think to make themselves rich by the ruin of the people of God; and those deceiv themselves, who call all that their own on which they can lay their hands in a day of calamity. Though judgment begins at the house of God it shall not end there. Let sorrowful believers and insolent oppressor know, that the troubles of the righteous will soon end, but those of the wicked will be eternal.
