    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:8

    ¿No haré que perezcan en aquel día, dijo el SEÑOR, los sabios de Edom, y la prudencia del monte de Esaú?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Obadiah 1:8

    Verse 8. Shall I not-destroy the
    wise men] It appears, from Jer. xlix. 7, that the Edomites were remarkable for wisdom, counsel, and prudence. See on the above place.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. Shall I not in that
    day, saith the Lord, even destroy the wise [men] out of Edom , etc.] When they shall be invaded by the enemy, and treacherously dealt with by their allies; so that there shall be no wise counsellors at court to give advice what proper methods should be taken at such a season; they should either be taken off by death, or their wisdom should be turned into folly, and they be rendered incapable of giving right counsel: and understanding out of the mount of Esau ? that is, men of understanding, as the Targum, should be destroyed out of Edom or Idumea, which was a mountainous country; such as were well versed in politics, or understood military affairs, and how to conduct at such a critical time; to form schemes, and concert measures, and wisely put them in execution; and to be deprived of all such must be a great loss at such a time, and add to their distress and calamity; (see Jeremiah 49:7).

    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.
