Let us in muse today from Obadiah verse 5-6 and Edom’s plundered treasure. It was the custom of Edom to set up roadblocks and tax caravans traveling to the east. If they could not pay the tax they took all that they had. The Edomites had caves full of goods that had been taken from others. In verse five God said if a grape stealer came he would leave you a few grapes, but because you have no mercy upon those you taxed when the enemy comes he will take all they you have. Edom had stepped over God’s mercy line in verse 6 and God took all they had.I wonder when America will step over God’s mercy line in their taxing of the people?
