(19) He that shall have dominion.--The reference is explained in Psalm 72:8, "He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth," where the same verb occurs which is in both places rendered in the Authorised Version "shall have dominion."

And shall destroy him that remaineth of the city.--Or, and He shall destroy the remnant from the cities. The city, which is in the singular number here as in Psalm 72:16, may be used collectively to denote cities generally, though some have understood the reference to be to the city of Jerusalem. But the reference seems to be rather to the chief city, or the cities generally, of Edom. (Comp. Obad., Numbers 24:18, where the same word occurs which is here rendered "him that remaineth," and which is there rendered "any remaining.")

Verse 19. - Shall come he that shall have dominion. ךויִרְדְּ Literally, "one shall rule," the subject being indefinite. Of the city. מֵעִיר; not apparently out of any city in particular, but "out of any hostile city." The expression implies not only conquest, but total destruction of the foe.
