    Those of the South will possess the
    mountain of Esau, and those of the lowland, the Philistines. They will possess the field of Ephraim, and the field of Samaria. Benjamin will possess Gilead.

    And they that are toward the south, shall inherit the mount of Esau, and they that are in the plains, the Philistines: and they shall possess the
    country of Ephraim, and the country of Samaria: and Benjamin shall possess Galaad.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:19

    Y los del mediodía poseerán el monte de Esaú, y los llanos de los palestinos; poseerán también los campos de Efraín, y los campos de Samaria; y Benjamín a Galaad.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Obadiah 1:19

    Verse 19. They of the south] The
    Jews who possessed the southern part of Palestine, should render themselves masters of the mountains of Idumea which were contiguous to them.

    They of the plain] From Eleutheropolis to the Mediterranean Sea. In this and the following verse the prophet shows the different districts which should be occupied by the Israelites after their return from Babylon.

    The fields of Samaria] Alexander the Great gave Samaria to the Jews; and John Hyrcanus subdued the same country after his wars with the Syrians. See Josephus, contra. App. lib, ii., and Antiq. lib. xiii., c. 18.

    Benjamin shall possess Gilead.] Edom lay to the south; the Philistines to the west, Ephraim to the north; and Gilead to the east. Those who returned from Babylon were to extend themselves everywhere. See Newcome; and see, for the fulfillment, 1 Macc. v. 9, 35, 45; ix. 35, 36.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 19. And [they of] the south shall possess the land of Esau , etc.] That is, those Jews that shall dwell in the southern part of the land of Judea shall seize upon the country of Idumea, lying contiguous to them; they shall enlarge their border, and take that into their possession: and [they of] the plain the Philistines ; or of Sephela, they that shall inhabit the plain, or champaign country of Judea, as the parts of Lydda, Emmaus, and Sharon, were; these shall possess the country of the Philistines, lying near unto them, as Azotus, Gaza, Ashkelon, Gath, and Ekron: and they shall possess the fields of Ephraim, and the fields of Samaria ; all the countries that the ten tribes inhabited, in the times of their idolatry, before their captivity, which the Jews shall now be restored unto: and Benjamin [shall possess] Gilead ; that tribe shall be so enlarged as to take in the country of Gilead, which lay beyond Jordan, formerly possessed by the, half tribe of Manasseh. Some think this was fulfilled in the times of the Maccabees, when several of these places were taken by Judas, in the Apocrypha: “17. Then said Judas unto Simon his brother, Choose thee out men, and go and deliver thy brethren that are in Galilee, for I and Jonathan my brother will go into the country of Galaad. 36. From thence went he, and took Casphon, Maged, Bosor, and the other cities of the country of Galaad. 38. So Judas sent men to espy the host, who brought him word, saying, All the heathen that be round about us are assembled unto them, even a very great host.” (1 Maccabees 5) but since the land of Judea, and the countries adjacent to it, were never as yet inhabited by the Jews in the form and manner here mentioned, it rather respects their settlement in their own land, in the latter day, when their borders will be greatly enlarged; (see Ezekiel 48:1-35 Zechariah 10:10); or it may regard the enlargement of the church of Christ, either in the first times of the Gospel, when that was spread in those parts, and met with success; (see Acts 8:6,8 9:31,35); or rather in the latter day, when Christ’s kingdom will be from sea to sea, and his dominion from the river to the ends of the earth, ( Psalm 72:8); and to which also the following words belong.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 17-21 - There should be deliverance and
    holiness at Jerusalem, and the house of Jacob would again occupy their possessions. Much of this prophecy wa fulfilled when the Jews returned to their own land. But the salvatio and holiness of the gospel, its spread, and the conversion of the Gentiles, seem also to be intended, especially the restoration of Israel, the destruction of antichrist, and the prosperous state of the church, to which all the prophets bear witness. When Christ is come and not till then, shall the kingdom be the Lord's in the full sense of the term. As none that exalt themselves against the Lord shall prosper and all shall be brought down; so none that wait upon the Lord, and pu their trust in him, shall ever be dismayed. Blessed be the Divin Saviour and Judge on Mount Zion! His word shall be a savour of lif unto life unto numbers, while it judges and condemns obstinat unbelievers __________________________________________________________________
