Thayer's Greek LexiconSTRONGS NT 2401: Ἰδουμαία
Ἰδουμαία, Ιδουμαίας, ἡ, Idumaea, the name of a region between southern Palestine and Arabia Petraea, inhabited by Esau or Edom (Genesis 36:30) and his posterity (the Edomites) (Joshua 15:1, 21; Joshua 11:17; Joshua 12:7). The Edomites were first subjugated by David; but after his death they disputed Solomon's authority and in the reign of Joram recovered their liberty, which they maintained, transmitting from generation to generation their hatred of Israel, until they were conquered again by Hyrcanus and subjected to the government of the Jews: Mark 3:8.
