Remember, O Yahweh, against the Edomites the day of Jerusalem.
They said, “Raze it, raze it to its very foundation!” Bible

“the Edomites.” This refers to the people from the area of Edom, who no doubt rejoiced when Babylon conquered Judah, but also “Edom” was used by the figure synecdoche of the part for Judah’s enemies as a whole. It was not just Edomites that rejoiced when Judah was destroyed.
