And I will set fire in Egypt
Kindle a war there, which shall consume it; see ( Ezekiel 30:8 ) : Sin shall have great pain;
as a woman in travail, seeing its destruction is just at hand; the same with Pelusium, as before: and No shall be rent asunder,
the walls of it shall be broken down by the enemy, or a breach shall be made in it, like the breach of waters which were about it; see ( Nahum 3:8 ) : and Noph shall have distresses daily:
that is, Memphis, as before; enemies shall surround it daily, as the Targum; shall besiege and distress it, until it is taken: or, "in the daytime"; their enemies should not come as thieves in the night, openly in the day. Abendana interprets it of their unfortunate day, their star being unlucky.
