Edom (NIV; TEV; NRSV; REB following one Hebrew manuscript; most manuscripts and early translations read, “Aram,” meaning Syria, as read by NAS; KSV). captured the city and then attacked Jehoshaphat of Judah (873-848 B.C.), the text noting that Hazazon-tamar was another name for Engedi (2 Chronicles 20:2 ).
