ABOUT THE ART

Talmudic commentary on the prophecy of Obadiah, which begins, "The vision of Obadiah. Thus said the LORD God concerning Edom."

Why particularly Obadiah against the nation of Edom? Ephraim Maksha'ah, the disciple of R. Meir said on his authority: "Obadiah was a proselyte out of Edom and thus people say, "From the very forest itself comes the handle of the axe that fells it."
{Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 39a, 52b}
