Scofield Reference Notes

[1] Edom

Edom (called also "Seir,") Gen 32:3 36:8 is the name of the country lying south of the ancient kingdom of Judah, and extending from the Dead Sea to the Gulf of Akaba. It includes the ruins of Petra, and is bounded on the north by Moab. Peopled by descendants of Esau Gen 36:1-9. Edom has a remarkable prominence in the prophetic word as (together with Moab) the scene of the final destruction of Gentile world-power in the day of the Lord. See "Armageddon" Rev 16:14 Rev 19:21 and "Times of the Gentiles" Lk 21:24 Rev 16:14. Cf. Ps 137:7 Obad 1:8-16 Isa 34:1-8 63:1-6 Jer 49:14-22 Ezek 25:12-14.Genesis 36:1 Parallel Commentaries
