Obedience in Prophecy

The first appearance of the word obedience in the NIV is Genesis 49:10.

The scepter will not depart from Judah,
   nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet,
until he to whom it belongs shall come
   and the obedience of the nations shall be his.

We read here about Jesus, the “Lion of Judah,” holding his scepter–an ancient symbol of royal authority.

Eventually, “the obedience of the nations” will belong to him.
