Since Obadiah does not make any clearly dated historical references, the book is very difficult to date. The first option is to date Obadiah as roughly contemporaneous with Hosea and Amos and to associate the Edomite's actions with the rebellion against the Judahite king Joram in 2 Kgs 2 Chr The more likely option is to see Obad as referring to the fall of Jerusalem in BC.
Obad 14 and Ps seem to indicate that the Edomites at least approved of the Babylonians leveling of Jerusalem and at most, helped them to destroy the city and capture Jewish refugees.
Ironically, Nebuchadnezzer and the Babylonians sacked Edom five years later, fulfilling Obadiah's word in Obad There are remarkable parallels between Obadiah and Jeremiah Scholars disagree as to whether one of prophets relied on the other or if the two relied on a common source.
