“But I will send a fire on the wall of Tyrus, which shall devour the palaces thereof.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:8 Ashkelon - Another city of the Philistines, and a very strong one, which shall perish with the king and the inhabitants thereof.
1:9 The brotherly covenant - Which was between Hiram on the one part, and David and Solomon on the other.
1:11 Pursue - Watched for, and laid hold on every occasion to oppress Israel. Did tear - As a ravenous and fierce lion tears the prey.
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.
