Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Obye"

Synonyms of "Obye" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre Obye e Listen ?
A: Hi,
You have a typo; it is "to obey".

You obey someone when you have to; you are given an order.
You listen to someone by choice; you are given advice.

Examples: The dog obeyed his master when he was told to sit down.

Bob finally listened to me and is doing his homework.

There is definitely a blurry line between what you may consider an order and advice; it ultimately depends on the context.

Edit: I'd add also that the act of obeying someone implies that there is a dominant person and a submissive person. For instance, a peasant obeys his king, or a dog obeys his master.
