Jeremiah 25:23

Jeremiah 25:23

Dedan, and Tema, and Buz
These seem to be places in Edom or Idumea, of whose destruction Jeremiah prophesies in ( Jeremiah 49:7 Jeremiah 49:8 Jeremiah 49:20 ) ; or rather in Arabia and Mesopotamia. Jerom reckons them among the Ishmaelites and Saracens, The persons from whom they descended are mentioned in ( Genesis 22:21 ) ( Genesis 25:8 Genesis 25:15 ) ; and all [that are] in the utmost corners;
that is, either of the above countries, or of the whole earth: or "all that had their hair shorn" {m}; or the corners of their beards; which Jerom says is applicable to the Saracens.
