SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:16 De la manera que vosotros bebisteis en mi santo monte, beberán, todos los gentiles de continuo; beberán, y engullirán, y serán como si no hubieran sido.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Obadiah 1:16 Verse 16. For as ye have drunk] This address is to the Jews. As ye have been visited and punished upon my holy mountain in Jerusalem, so shall other nations be punished in their respective countries. See Jer. xlix. 12.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 16. For as ye have drunk upon my holy mountain, [so] shall all the Heathen drink continually , etc.] Which is either spoken to the Edomites; and the sense be, according to the Targum, “as ye have rejoiced at the blow (given unto or at the subversion and destruction) of the mountain of my holiness, all people shall drink the cup of their vengeance;” or punishment; and to the same sense Jarchi and Japhet interpret it; and so Kimchi, “as ye have made a feast, rejoicing at the destruction of my holy mountain, so thou and all nations shall drink of the cup of trembling;” but Aben Ezra thinks the words are spoken to the Israelites, “as ye have drank the cup, so shall all nations;” the cup of vengeance began with them, and so went round the nations, according to the prophecy in ( Jeremiah 25:17,18), etc. for, if judgment begins at the house and people of God, it may be expected it will reach to others; wherefore Edom had no reason to rejoice at the destruction of the Jews, since they might be assured by that the same would be their case before long; and with this difference, that whereas the Jews only drank this cup for a while, during the seventy years’ captivity, these nations, and the Edomites among the rest, should be “continually” drinking it: yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down ; not only drink of the cup, but drink it up; not only take it into their mouths, but swallow it down their throats; not only sip at it, but “sup [it] up” f25 , as it may be rendered.
The phrase denotes the fulness of their punishment, and their utter and entire ruin and destruction, which the next clause confirms: and they shall be as though they had not been ; as now are the Philistines, Moabites, Ammonites, and so the Edomites; their names are not heard of in the world, only as they are read in the Bible; and thus it shall be with mystical Babylon or Edom, it shall be thrown down, and found no more, ( Revelation 18:21).
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.
