This short book comes from some undetermined time after the fall of Jerusalem in 586 b.c., when Edom, Judah's age-old enemy to the southeast, not only rejoiced over the fall of Jerusalem but took advantage of Judah's plight to loot the city and help the invader. Obadiah prophesied that Edom would be punished and defeated, along with other nations that were the enemies of Israel.

Obadiah prophesied judgment against Edom, a country southeast of Israel that had not helped Israel when foreigners were invading it. Because of this, the Lord was going to punish the Edomites and give their land to the people of Israel.
