Seir is a mountainess region south and east of the Dead Sea. The land of Seir is another name for the country of Edom, where Esau, Jacob's brother settled (Genesis 36:8). God did not allow Moses and the Israelites to engage in battle with their kindred, as they marched past Edom, as He had given "Mount Seir to Esau as a possession" (Deuteronomy 2:3-5). The prophets condemn Edom, and sometimes call it Mount Seir, in many prophecies.
