Chapter 26

Chapter Overview

The sin of Tyre, verse 1, 2.
The utter destruction of it, verse 3-14.
The astonishment of the neighbouring nations, verse 15-21.

Verse 1
In the eleventh year - Of Jechoniah's captivity, the year wherein Jerusalem was taken. The month - That month which followed the taking of Jerusalem.

Verse 2
Because - Probably God revealed this to the prophet as soon as these insulting Tyrians spoke it. The gates - The great mart of nations, people from all parts. She is turned - The trading interest will turn to me.

Verse 4
Scrape - I will leave thee nothing; thou shalt be scraped, and swept, that not so much as dust shall remain in thee. Like - As bare as was the rock on which thy city is built.

Verse 6
Her daughters - The lesser cities. In the field - On the firm land.

Verse 11
Garrisons - Bastions, or forts, or triumphal arches.

Verse 12
Shall lay - It had been a quicker way, to have burnt all; but the greedy soldier might dream of treasures hid in walls, or under the timber, and therefore take the pains to pull all down, and throw it into the sea.

Verse 14
No more - Tho' there was a city of that name built, yet it was built on the continent; and in propriety of speech, was another city.

Verse 15
The isles - Isles which are places freest from danger of invasions, will shake with fear, when they learn that Tyre is fallen.

Verse 16
The princes - Who were lords of the islands of that sea. Come down - In token of condolence. Trembling - They shall be afraid of their own concerns, and astonished in the midst of their fears.

Verse 18
In the sea - At a great distance, and farther from land. Departure - Leaving thy ancient dwelling, to go into captivity.

Verse 19
The deep - Nebuchadnezzar's army. Great waters - Great afflictions.

Verse 20
Bring thee down - When I shall slay thee, and throw thee into the grave. With the people - Who are long since dead, and gone to eternity. The low parts - Another description of the grave, from the situation and solitude of it. Set glory - Then I will restore the beauty, strength, and wealth of Israel, and bring them back to Jerusalem. In the land - In the land of Judea, called, land of the living, because a land, where God will bless, and give life by his word, ordinances, and spirit: thus different shall Tyre's captivity and Jerusalem's be.

Verse 21
A terror - To all that hear of thee.
