    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 25:8

    Moab and Seir do say - Seir means the Idumeans. It appears that both these, with the Ammonites, had made a league with Zedekiah, Jeremiah 27:3, which they did not keep; and it is supposed that they even joined with the Chaldeans.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 25:8

    Prophecies against Moab which lay south of Ammon, and shared Ammon's implacable hostility to the children of Israel.

    Seir was close to Moab. Edom is identified with Mount "Seir" in Ezekiel 35:1-15; and "Seir" is therefore probably coupled with "Moab" here because, being near neighbors closely leagued together, they expressed a common exultation at Jerusalem's fall.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 25:8

    25:8 Seir - The seed of Esau, the Edomites. Seir was the mountain where they first planted themselves. Is like - Are no more a select people than others.
