Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Obadiah 1:3

_ _ clefts of ... rock — (Song of Songs 2:14; Jeremiah 48:28). The cities of Edom, and among them Petra (Hebrew, sela, meaning “rock,” 2 Kings 14:7, Margin), the capital, in the Wady Musa, consisted of houses mostly cut in the rocks.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Obadiah 1:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Obadiah 1:3

The pride — The Edomites were, as most mountaineers are, a rough hardy, and daring people. And proud above measure. Deceived thee — Magnifying thy strength above what really it is.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(c) Which despises all others in respect of yourself, and yet you are but a handful in comparison with others, and you are shut up among the hills as separate from the rest of the world.
