15 day of the Lord is near upon all the nations. For the day of the Lord, see Is. 2:11, 12. Now the prophet sets the judgment of Edom against the larger backdrop of God’s moral reckoning with all nations. This episode with Edom is only a small preview of God’s judgment; He will not stop until He has cleansed His world of all His enemies. The connection between Edom and the rest of the nations is their shared rebellion against God.
