Edom is a nation that is made up of Edomites who descended from Esau—the elder brother of Jacob. 

The meaning of Edom and Esau is ‘red.’ 

Although Edom and Israel have the same roots from Jacob, they confronted each other historically.

Edom looked strong, but in the end, they disappeared in the history books due to their sins, and their land thus became the property of Israel.

The book of Obadiah shows the judgment of Edom. The bible refers to Edom as “The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rock, in your lofty dwelling, who say in your heart, “Who will bring me down to the ground?” (Obadiah 1:3).
