SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:7 Este también hirió diez mil idumeos en el valle de las Salinas, y tomó a Sela (la piedra ) por guerra, y la llamó Jocteel, hasta hoy.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 14:7 Verse 7. He slew of Edom to the valley of salt] This war is more circumstantially related in 2 Chron. xxv. 5, &c. The Idumeans had arisen in the reign of Joram king of Judah, and shaken off the yoke of the house of David. Amaziah determined to reduce them to obedience; he therefore levied an army of three hundred thousand men in his own kingdom, and hired a hundred thousand Israelites, at the price of one hundred talents.
When he was about to depart at the head of this numerous army, a prophet came to him and ordered him to dismiss the Israelitish army, for God was not with them: and on the king of Judah expressing regret for the loss of his hundred talents, he was answered, that the Lord could give him much more than that. He obeyed, sent back the Israelites, and at the head of his own men attacked the Edomites in the valley of salt, slew ten thousand on the spot, and took ten thousand prisoners, all of whom he precipitated from the rock, or Selah, which was afterwards called Joktheel, a place or city supposed to be the same with Petra, which gave name to Arabia Petraea, where there must have been a great precipice, from which the place took its name of Selah or Petra.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 7. He slew of Edom in the valley of Salt ten thousand , etc.] Of which valley, (see Gill on “ 2 Samuel 8:13”), the Edomites having revolted from Judah in the days of Joram, ( 2 Kings 8:20,22). Amaziah undertook to reduce them with an army of 300,000 choice men; and, besides these, hired also of Israel 100,000 valiant men, for one hundred talents of silver; but at the instance of a prophet of the Lord he dismissed the latter, and went against Edom only with his men, and slew of the Edomites 10,000, besides other 10,000 he took alive, and cast headlong from a rock, which came into his hands, (see 2 Chronicles 25:5-12), and took Selah by war ; which signifies a rock, the same with Petra, the metropolis of Arabia Petraea, the country of the Edomites. The city itself was not a rock, nor built on one, but was situated in a plain, surrounded with rocks and mountains, as Strabo and Pliny relate, from whence it seems to have its name; and by the Syrians called Recem, where Rocan a king of Midian reigned f149 , called in the Greek version of ( Numbers 31:8), Recon; though Vitringa is of opinion, that not Petra, the metropolis of Edom, is meant, but Maalehakrabbim, ( Joshua 15:3 Judges 1:36), which lay on the south border of Judea, near the salt sea: and called the name of it Joktheel ; which signifies “the obedience of God”; in memory of his obedience to the prophet of the Lord, in consequence of which he obtained this victory: and the name continued unto this day: the time of the writing this book.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-7 - Amaziah began well, but did not go on so. It is not enough to do tha which our pious predecessors did, merely to keep up the common usage but we must do it as they did, from the same principle of faith an devotion, and with the same sincerity and resolution.
