There is Edom, her kings, and all her princes
In the next place, near the graves of the above mentioned, and in the same ruinous and desolate condition, lie the famous kingdom of Idumea, and the several kings and dukes of it, from the first setting of it up, to its last destruction prophesied of, ( Ezekiel 25:12-14 ) , of many of which mention is made, ( Genesis 36:15-43 ) : which with their might are laid by them that are slain with the sword;
who, notwithstanding their powerful armies, and prowess and skill in war, yet are conquered, and destroyed, and laid in graves in like manner as all others slain by the, sword of the enemy are: they shall lie with the uncircumcised;
for though they themselves were circumcised, being the descendants of Esau the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham, on whose seed circumcision was enjoined; yet this did not secure them from a violent death, and an ignominious burial; they being uncircumcised in heart, wicked and ungodly men, and so should be joined in their death and burial with such: and with them that go down to the pit;
the common receptacle of the slain.
