Obadiah (Abdias, "servant of Jehovah"), the fourth and briefest of the minor prophets. Nothing is known of his personal history, and attempts to identify him with others of his name have failed. He probably wrote in the 6th century B.C.

“Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.”
Isaiah 53:4
