Obadiah (pride and unbrotherlyness)
The boys grew up. Esau became a skillful hunter. He was a man who liked the open country. But Jacob was a quiet man. He stayed at home among the tents. Isaac liked the meat of wild animals. So Esau was his favorite son. But Rebekah's favorite was Jacob.
One day Jacob was cooking some stew. Esau came in from the open country. He was very hungry. He said to Jacob, "Quick! Let me have some of that red stew! I'm very hungry!" That's why he was also named Edom.
Jacob replied, "First sell me the rights that belong to you as the oldest son in the family."
"Look, I'm dying of hunger," Esau said. "What good are those rights to me?" (Genesis 25:27-32 NIRV)
Here is the story of the family of Aaron and Moses. It belongs to the time when the Lord talked with Moses on Mount Sinai.
Aaron's oldest son was Nadab. His other sons were Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. Those were the names of Aaron's sons. They were the anointed priests. They were prepared to serve the Lord as priests. But Nadab and Abihu made an offering to the Lord by using fire that wasn't allowed. So they fell dead in front of him. That happened in the Desert of Sinai. They didn't have any sons. Only Eleazar and Ithamar served as priests while their father Aaron was living.
The Lord spoke to Moses. He said, "Bring the men of the tribe of Levi to the priest Aaron. They will help him. They must work at the Tent of Meeting for Aaron and for the whole community. They must do what needs to be done at the holy tent. They must take care of everything that is connected with the Tent of Meeting. When they do, they are acting for all of the people of Israel. Give the Levites to Aaron and his sons. They are the men of Israel who must be given completely to him.
"Appoint Aaron and his sons to serve as priests. Anyone else who approaches the sacred tent must be put to death."
The Lord also said to Moses, "I have taken the Levites from among the people of Israel. I have taken them in place of the oldest son who is born to each woman in Israel. The Levites belong to me. That is because every male that is born first to a mother is mine. In Egypt I struck down all of the males that were born first. I did it when I set apart for myself every male that is born first to a mother in Israel. That is true for men and animals alike. They belong to me. I am the Lord." (Numbers 3:1-13 NIRV)
See to it that no one commits sexual sins.
See to it that no one is godless like Esau. He sold the rights to what he would receive as the oldest son. He sold them for a single meal. As you know, after that he wanted to receive his father's blessing. But he was turned away. With tears he tried to get the blessing. But he couldn't get his father to change his mind. (Hebrews 12:16, 17 NIRV)
Isaac and Rebekah became very upset because Esau had married Hittite women. (Genesis 26:35 NIRV)
"But put God's kingdom first. Do what he wants you to do. Then all of those things will also be given to you. (Matthew 6:33 NIRV)
Here is what we announce to everyone about the Word of life. He was already here from the beginning. We have heard him. We have seen him with our eyes. We have looked at him. Our hands have touched him. That life has appeared. We have seen him. We give witness about him. And we announce to you that same eternal life. He was already with the Father. He has appeared to us.
We announce to you what we have seen and heard. We do it so you can share life together with us. And we share life with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We are writing this to make our joy complete. (1 John 1:1-4 NIRV)
Then Jesus came to them. He said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. So you must go and make disciples of all nations. Baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And you can be sure that I am always with you, to the very end." (Matthew 28:18-20 NIRV)
Strangers entered the gates of Jerusalem.
They cast lots to see what each one would get. They carried off its wealth. When that happened, you just stood there and did nothing. You were like one of them. (Obadiah 1:11 NIRV)
Then the Lord said to Cain, "Where is your brother Abel?"
"I don't know," he replied. "Am I supposed to look after my brother?" (Genesis 4:9 NIRV)
Do not gloat over your brother in the day of his calamity; do not rejoice over the people of Judah in the day of their destruction; do not boastfully mock in the day of distress. Do not enter the gate of My people in the day of their disaster. Yes, you-do not gloat over their misery in the day of their disaster and do not appropriate their possessions in the day of their disaster. (Obadiah 1:12, 13 HCSB)
Your presumptuous heart has deceived you,you who live in clefts of the rock in your home on the heights, who say to yourself, "Who can bring me down to the ground?" (Obadiah 1:3 HCSB)
Brothers, if someone is caught in any wrongdoing, you who are spiritual should restore such a person with a gentle spirit, watching out for yourselves so you also won't be tempted. Carry one another's burdens; in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:1, 2 HCSB)
Do not gloat over your brother in the day of his calamity; do not rejoice over the people of Judah in the day of their destruction; do not boastfully mock in the day of distress. (Obadiah 1:12 HCSB)
Do not enter the gate of My people in the day of their disaster. Yes, you-do not gloat over their misery in the day of their disaster and do not appropriate their possessions in the day of their disaster.
Do not stand at the crossroads to cut off their fugitives, and do not hand over their survivors in the day of distress. (Obadiah 1:13, 14 HCSB)
What then is [the conclusion], brothers? Whenever you come together, each one has a psalm, a teaching, a revelation, [another] language, or an interpretation. All things must be done for edification. (1 Corinthians 14:26 HCSB)
From Him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building up itself in love by the proper working of each individual part. (Ephesians 4:16 HCSB)
