Obadiah is a book written about the doom of Edom. There is no country of “Edom” today.
Obadiah 1:18, “The house of Jacob shall be a fire, the house of Joseph a flame, but the house of Esau stubble; they shall burn them and consume them, and there shall be no survivors from the house of Esau, for the Lord has spoken.” Modern English Version
Amplified Bible Notes: By the time of Malachi’s prophecy, about 430 B.C., this prediction of Edom’s expulsion from Mount Seir by the Nabatean Arabs may have been a reality already. The Edomites are heard of no more after the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70.
It is verification that the word of God is true.
