Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Obadiah 1:14

_ _ stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his — Judah’s.

_ _ that did escape — The Jews naturally fled by the crossways. (Maurer translates, “narrow mountain passes”) well known to them, to escape to the desert, and through Edom to Egypt; but the Edomites stood ready to intercept the fugitives and either kill or “deliver them up” to the foe.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Obadiah 1:10-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Obadiah 1:14

The breaches — Of the walls, by which when the city was taken, some might have made their escape. Delivered — To the Chaldeans. Remain — Survived the taking of the city.
