Ovadia HaNavi was one of the main 48 prophets of Israel. He was a Edomite convert who rose to the rank of King Achov's personal estate manager. Ovadia was very G-D fearing and when Ezevel massacred all the true prophets, he hid 100 of them in a double cave. Ovadia was a student of Achia Hasheloni and was considered to be a part of Eliyahu Hanavi's beit din. His prophecy predicting the doom of Edom is contained in the forth book of the Tray Asar, consisting of only one chapter.
