I am very keen in space exploration, and have an ambition to be a pioneer in that field. However, I was thrown off-guard by this verse that I found, which appears to be forbidding space travel.
Obadiah 1:4 (NIV) (emphasis mine)
Though you soar like the eagle and make your nest among the stars, from there I will bring you down," declares the LORD
Nest would relate to dwelling place, and a nest among the stars sounds very much like a space colony. The phrase "soar like eagles" could be referring to spacecraft, which have fixed wing/no wing at all, very much like a soaring bird.
So in short, this verse appears to indicate that God really does not want us to explore His creation, and traverse the the universe and colonize space, but I am not sure.
What is the correct interpretation of the verse from Obadiah?
P.S. I have edited the question and reworded to make it more specific, please consider removing the downvotes.
