Obadiah 1:12. But thou shouldest not have looked upon the day of thy brother On his evil day. Thou oughtest not to have taken pleasure at the sight of thy brother’s calamity. So the expression of looking upon an enemy signifies, in many passages of Scripture, the beholding his fall with satisfaction: see the margin. In the day that he became a stranger When he was driven from his own inheritance, and went captive into a strange land. Neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah, &c. In the day when many of them were slain; nor have spoken proudly in the day of distress Neither shouldest thou have insulted over them when they were in calamity, boasting of thy own felicity, while they were groaning under misery.
