Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Obadiah 1:11

_ _ thou stoodest on the other side — in an attitude of hostility, rather than the sympathy which became a brother, feasting thine eyes (see Obadiah 1:12) with the misery of Jacob, and eagerly watching for his destruction. So Messiah, the antitype to Jerusalem, abandoned by His kinsmen (Psalms 38:11).

_ _ strangers — the Philistines, Arabians in the reign of Jehoram, etc. (2 Chronicles 21:16); the Syrians in the reign of Joash of Judah (2 Chronicles 24:24); the Chaldeans (2 Chronicles 36:1-23).

_ _ carried ... captive his forces — his “host” (Obadiah 1:20): the multitude of Jerusalem’s inhabitants.

_ _ cast lots upon Jerusalem — (Joel 3:3). So Messiah, Jerusalem’s antitype, had lots cast for His only earthly possessions (Psalms 22:18).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Obadiah 1:11

In the day — During the war which the Babylonians made upon Judea. Stoodest — Didst set thyself in battle array against thy brother. Jerusalem — Upon the citizens and their goods. As one of them — As merciless and insolent as any of them.

(h) When Nebuchadnezzar came against Jerusalem, you joined with him, and had part of the spoil, and so rejoiced when my people (that is, your brother), were afflicted, whereas you should have pitied and helped your brother.
