1. Royal city of Edom, on which the prophets pronounced judgments (Gen. 36:3333And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead. (Genesis 36:33); 1 Chron. 1:4444And when Bela was dead, Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead. (1 Chronicles 1:44); Jer. 49:13,2213For I have sworn by myself, saith the Lord, that Bozrah shall become a desolation, a reproach, a waste, and a curse; and all the cities thereof shall be perpetual wastes. (Jeremiah 49:13)
22Behold, he shall come up and fly as the eagle, and spread his wings over Bozrah: and at that day shall the heart of the mighty men of Edom be as the heart of a woman in her pangs. (Jeremiah 49:22)
; Amos 1:1212But I will send a fire upon Teman, which shall devour the palaces of Bozrah. (Amos 1:12); Mic. 2:1212I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men. (Micah 2:12)). Christ is represented as coming from thence with dyed garments, having trodden the winepress of His wrath upon the nations (Gentiles) (Isa. 63:1-41Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. 2Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? 3I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. 4For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. (Isaiah 63:1‑4); compare Isa. 34). Identified with el Buseireh, 30° 50’ N, 35° 35’ E.
