Biblios Hokku - Obadiah

Do you remember Jacob, son of Isaac? A dodgy character of note, but GOD chose to use him anyway, and renamed him Israel. Well, he had a brother, as you may recall. His brother Esau, was also renamed. He was called Edom. Isaac prophesied that Edom's descendants (Edomites) would always be at war with Israel's (Israelites) which in fact happened for hundreds of years.
After Edom took part in the ransacking of Jerusalem in the Babylonian invasion, GOD sent Obadiah to pass judgment on them...

Curse not God’s chosen!
For the Lord will cut you off.
An end for Edom?

Another exciting chapter in the Biblios Hokku saga. Read it all here.


  1. You're very creative with that hokku.

  2. If I remember correctly, Edom's destruction was final.


Say Hoo Ha Ha!
