This chapter is a continuation of the prophecy against Egypt, both
against the country and the king of it. It is introduced with
expressions of lamentation, because of the destruction coming on,
\\#Eze 30:1-3\\, and not only Egypt, and the cities thereof, should
be destroyed, but all her friends, associates, and allies; the
Ethiopians, Lydians, Lybians, and others, \\#Eze 30:4-9\\.
Nebuchadnezzar and his army were to be the instruments of her ruin,
\\#Eze 30:10-12\\, particular cities are mentioned by name, which
should suffer much, and become desolate, \\#Eze 30:13-19\\ and then
Pharaoh king of Egypt himself is threatened with broken arms, and his
people to be scattered among the nations, \\#Eze 30:20-23\\, and the
king of Babylon is again mentioned, whose arms should be strengthened
to do all this, \\#Eze 30:24-26\\.
