The Tables Will Turn
Today's reading concludes the prophecy of Obadiah with a promise. Edom had seemed to participate in the defeat of Judah, but eventually God will flip this result. Judah will be restored to its land and free, while Edom will be completely destroyed and its land will be controlled by the rulers in Jerusalem.
