The Edomites or Idumeans, during the Babylonish captivity, took possession of the mountainous parts of

Judes, and the fortresses which command the country, intending to exclude the Jews if ever they should return from their captivity. The prophet therefore, by a beautiful personification, addresses the mounlains of Israel; and, ascribing to them passions and emotions similar to those of his own breast, consoles them, with the prospect of being soon rid of those .usúrping foes-; of being freed from the dishonour of idols under which they groaned ; and of flourishing again in their ancient glory under their rightful owners, 1-15. The idolatry and other sins of the Jews are then declared to be the cause of their captivity and dispersion, 16–20; from which however they are promised a deliverance in terms of great force and beauty, 21-38. This chapter contains also, under the type of the happy condition of the Israelites after their restoration from the Babylonish captivity, a glorious prophecy of the rich blessings of the Gospel dispensation.
