Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 35:2

_ _ Mount Seir — that is, Idumea (Genesis 36:9). Singled out as badly pre-eminent in its bitterness against God’s people, to represent all their enemies everywhere and in all ages. So in Isaiah 34:5; Isaiah 63:1-4, Edom, the region of the greatest enmity towards God’s people, is the ideal scene of the final judgments of all God’s foes. “Seir” means “shaggy,” alluding to its rugged hills and forests.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 35:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 35:2

Mount Seir — The Edomites, who inhabited it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 35:2
