Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Edom, which had been reduced by David 2 Samuel 8:14; 1 Kings 11:15-16, but had apparently revolted from Solomon 1 Kings 11:14, was again subjected to Judah in the reign of Jehoshaphat 2 Kings 3:8-26. The Edomites had, however, retained their native kings, and with them the spirit of independence.

Kings of Edom, who seem to be independent monarchs, are often mentioned in the Assyrian inscriptions.
