("on the right".) So south to one facing east. Son of Eliphaz, Esau's son (Genesis 36:11); a duke of Edom. The southern part of Idumea. Habakkuk (Habakkuk 3:3) confirms this southern position, from which as the starting point in the region of Mount Paran the Holy One's coming is northwards. Ezekiel 25:13 translated "I will make it desolate from Teman (in the S.) ever, to Dedan (in the N.W.); they shall fall by the sword," i.e. the whole land of Edom. Famed for wisdom: Jeremiah 49:8, "is wisdom no more in Teman?" etc.; compare 1 Kings 4:30, and for "mighty men" Obadiah 1:8-9. Eliphaz the Temanite is mentioned as a wise man in Job 2:11; Job 22:1. Eusebius and Jerome mention Teman as a town 15 miles from Petra, and a Roman post.
