    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:4

    Si te encaramares como águila, y si entre las estrellas pusieres tu nido, de ahí te derribaré, dijo el SEÑOR.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Obadiah 1:4

    Verse 4. Though thou exalt thyself as the
    eagle] Though like this bird thou get into the highest cliff of the highest rock, it will not avail thee. To defend thee, when Jehovah has determined thy destruction, thy deepest caves and highest rocks will be equally useless. See Jer. xlix. 16.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. Though thou exaltest [thyself] as the
    eagle , etc.] That soars aloft, flies on high, even out of sight, higher than any other bird does: or, “exaltest thy habitation”; and makest it as high as the eagle’s nest; (see Jeremiah 49:16); and though thou set thy nest among the stars ; even higher than the eagle’s; an hyperbolical expression, supposing that which never was or can be done; yet, if it was possible, would not secure from danger: or should their castles and fortresses be built upon the top of the highest mountains, which seem to reach the heavens, and be among the stars: thence will I bring thee down, saith the Lord ; this is said in answer to the question put, or bold challenge made, in ( Obadiah 1:3); if men cannot do it, God will; and, if he employs instruments to effect it, it shall be done by them; all seeming difficulties are easily surmounted by an omnipotent Being; what are the heights of mountains, or the strength of fortresses, to him? thus the whore of Rome sits upon seven mountains, and mystical Babylon reigns over the kings of the earth; yet shall be thrown down and found no more, for the Lord is strong that judgeth her, ( Revelation 17:9,18 18:8,21).

    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.
