So Joram went over to Zair
A city in Edom, the same with the Zaara of Ptolemy F9; some take it to be the same with Seir, the mountain or country of that name:
and all the chariots with him;
all the chariots of war he had:
and he rose by night, and smote the Edomites which compassed him about;
who came out of their cities in great numbers, and surrounded him, he having entered into their country in an hostile way, to subdue them:
and the captains of the chariots:
which belonged to the Edomites; those he smote, ( 2 Chronicles 21:9 )
and the people fled into their tents;
the army being routed.
