The Obadiah quote is more about God's response to Edomites if they "made their nest among the stars"- aka interstellar travel. But the prophecy is more generally on God wiping out the Edomite nation. Anyone know of where the Edomites are today?

1. I hope you're not serious about the "interstellar travel" comment.

2. The Edomites were absorbed into the Hebrews. Under the reign of John Hyrcanus I (c. 134 - 104 BCE), the land of Idumea was conquered by the Judaean forces, and the Idumeans were absorbed by the Jews and forced to convert to Judaism.
