Amos 1:12

_ _ Teman — a city of Edom, called from a grandson of Esau (Genesis 36:11, Genesis 36:15; Obadiah 1:8, Obadiah 1:9); situated five miles from Petra; south of the present Wady Musa. Its people were famed for wisdom (Jeremiah 49:7).

_ _ Bozrah — a city of Edom (Isaiah 63:1). Selah or Petra is not mentioned, as it had been overthrown by Amaziah (2 Kings 14:7).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Amos 1:3-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Amos 1:12

Teman — The metropolis of Idumea, so called from Esau's grandson of that name. Bozrah — This was a very strong city, and one of the chief in the whole kingdom, so that in the menace against Bozrah and Teman, the strength and glory of Edom is threatened with an utter overthrow.
