Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Obadiah 1:6

_ _ How are the things of Esau searched out! — by hostile soldiers seeking booty. Compare with Obadiah 1:5, Obadiah 1:6 here, Jeremiah 49:9, Jeremiah 49:10.

_ _ hidden things — or “places.” Edom abounded in such hiding-places, as caves, clefts in the rock, etc. None of these would be left unexplored by the foe.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Obadiah 1:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Obadiah 1:6

Esau — The father of this people, put for his posterity. Sought up — All that the Edomites had laid up in the most secret places, are seized and brought forth by soldiers.
