And the Horites in their Mount Seir
Or the Horim who dwelt in Mount Seir, so called from Seir the Horite, who continued here till they were drove out by the sons of Esau or Edom, from whom their country was afterwards called Edom or Idumea, see ( Genesis 36:20-30 ) ( Deuteronomy 2:12 Deuteronomy 2:22 ) ; unto Elparan, which [is] by the wilderness;
so far these Horites inhabited, and the four kings smote all they met with unto this place, which was either the plain or oak of Paran, near a wilderness of the same name; the wilderness of Arabia, through which the Israelites travelled forty years, in their way to Canaan.
