Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., Wheaton, IL, USA.</ref> The form of Obadiah's name used in the Septuagint is Obdios; in Latin it is Abdias. The Bishops' Bible has it as Abdi.

Prophet Obadiah

"The political situation implied in the prophecy points to a time after the Exile, probably in the mid-fifth century B.C. No value can be attributed to traditions identifying this prophet with King Ahab's steward (... so Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 39b) or with King Ahaziah's captain (... so Pseudo-Epiphanius...)." The Interpreters' Bible<ref>The Interpreter's Bible, 1953, Volume VI, pp. 857-859, John A. Thompson</ref>
