Isa 21:11 (NKJV) — The burden against Dumah. He calls to me out of Seir, "Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?"
|Phrase from KJV (Help)
||"Dumah is probably the same as Dumatha, a city of Arabia, mentioned by Stephanus, and the modern Dumah and Dumathalgandel, on the borders of Arabia and Syria, in a rocky valley. The Edomites, says Bp. Lowth, as well as Jews, were subdued by the Babylonians. They enquire of the prophet how long their subjection is to last; he intimates that the Jews should be delivered from their captivity; not so the Edomites. ""The morning cometh, and also the night."" Gen 25:14; 1Ch 1:30"|
