Obadiah 1:15

Daily Hebrew: 

For reflection, consider the painting "Justice and Divine Vengeance Pursuing Crime" by Pierre-Paul Prud'hon (Date: about 1805 - 1806). 

For me, the play of light and darkness in the artwork is particularly powerful, drawing us in to the urgency and drama of the relentless threat of evil and violence in human life. The thief and murderer races, or is pulled, into the darkness, but moonlight unveils the horror of what has happened and torchlight will overcome the power of the darkness into which he tries to flee.
