Many traits is that he is arrogant and

Many times throughout Tanach, one can see a clear distinction or similarity in the traits of the Jews and the traits of the Non Jews. Sometimes Hashem even treats the the Jews differently than He treats the non Jews. In Tri Asar, specifically in Yonah, Nachum, and Ovadya, the traits of the Jews are clearly different or obviously the same than the traits of the Non- Jews, and one can also see that Hashem treats Bnei Yisroel differently than how He treats the non Jews. In sefer Ovadia, one can see the difference in the traits of the Jews and Non- Jews with Esav, because many of Edoms sins are clear. The Michtam M’Eliyahu states Esav was a hypocrite. He tried to act more righteous than he was. Esav is even compared to a pig, who shows off his hooves, to make himself look better than he is, but is really not Kosher. Another one of Esavs traits is that he is arrogant and thinks that he is the most powerful. An additional sin of Edom is in Posuk Yud Daled, ???????????????? .????????????? ??????????? ??????????????? ???????????????? ??????????? ???????? ?????? This is reffering to when Edom stood at the croosroads when the Jews were fleeing from the destruction on the Beis Hamikdash, and Edom turned them in. Because of how Edom acted, Hashem punishes them. Posuk 15 says, ????????????? ?????????????? ??????????????????? ??????????? ?????????? ????????? ?????? ??????????? ???????? ???????????? Hashem is saying that everything Edom did will come back to them when Moshiach comes. In Sefer Yonah, Perek 1 Posuk 9 states, ?????????? ????????? ???????? ???????? ?????????????? ???????? ????????????? ?????? ?????? ?????????????? ??????????? ???????????????????: Yonah says he’s a Jew and the only thing that matters is that he is a jew and that he sinned to Hashem, whom he now feared. Yonah was also thinking, how can I even do this? Hashem created everything. In Yonah, the traits of the Yonah, are like the traits of the people of Nineveh. When the people of Nineveh were told to do Teshuva, they did, and they even promised that they would convert and bring Sacrifices. The people, like Yonah, feared Hashem, returned from their bad ways, and the Midrash says that they even did Bein Adam Lechavero. Often times Hashem treats the Jews differently than the Non- Jews. In Nachum, the posuk states that Hashem is a jealous and vengeful G-d who avenges himself on His enemies, and He bears a grudge against them. “???? ???????? ???????? ???????? ?????? ???????? ???????? ?????? ?????? ???????? ????????? ????????? ????? ????????????This Posuk uses the word “???????”in order to show that in Nachum, Hashem’s vengeance is only toward His enemies, and not Bnei Yisroel. Another difference between the Jews and the Non- Jews, is that the Jews were given the Torah, and they have to act in an exemplary way inorder to make a Kiddush Hashem. If we want to make a Kiddush Hashem, and make a good impression on those watching us, then we need to constantly work on ourselves. This commandment is not given to the non Jews. The opposite of a Kiddush Hashem is a Chillul Hashem, which is when we do not act in a good way, which then lowers the glory of the individual, Bnei Yisroel, and Hashem’s name. The traits of the Jews and the traits of the non Jews are different at times, but can also be the same, like in Sefer Yonah, when they both fear Hashem in the end. In Sefer Ovadia though, the Jews clearly acted differently than the Non- Jews. Sometimes Hashem even treats the the Jews differently than He treats the non Jews, like in Nachum, when Hashem was only vengeful to the Non- Jews, His enemy. All throughout Tanach, there are many times that one can see a distinction in the way the jews and the non jews act, and the difference in the way Hashem treats them.
