For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

34:5 Idumea. Idumea is the land of Edom, and there are indications that Christ will return first to that land of the cursed Edomites (note Obadiah 18 and Malachi 1:3, for example), then proceed to Jerusalem (compare Isaiah 63:1-4), all the way treading the terrible “winepress of the wrath of God,” wearing a “vesture dipped in blood” (Revelation 14:19,20; 19:13). Note also Isaiah 34:6, revealing that “the LORD hath…a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.” The distance from Bozrah (Isaiah 34:6) to Jerusalem is about sixteen hundred furlongs (Revelation 14:20).
