Obadiah 1

     1. Obadiah—that is, servant of Jehovah; same as Abdeel and Arabic Abd-allah.

      We—I and my people.

      heard— (Isa 21:10).

      and an ambassador is sent—Yea, an ambassador is already sent, namely, an angel, to stir up the Assyrians (and afterwards the Chaldeans) against Edom. The result of the ambassador's message on the heathen is, they simultaneously exclaim, "Arise ye, and let us (with united strength) rise," &c. Jer 49:14 quotes this.
