Obadiah 1. The sins of the father pass generations

Read Obadiah

This is a one chapter book by an obscure prophet who speaks out against Edom. A little history here.

The nation of Edom are descendants of Esau, who was twin brother with Jacob. So although these nations, Edom and Israel, are brothers, Edom rose up against Israel several times and even invaded Jerusalem with the Chaldeans. (2 Chr 28). But how did they start out? Remember back in Genesis 36, Esau took wives from the local Canaanites which made his parents angry. It was from these marriages that Esau and the nation of Edom strayed away from God. So in essence Esau placed in motion events that generations later would lead to family wars and eventually judgment by God.
