Ezekiel 28:19 Meaning and Commentary

Ezekiel 28:19

All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished
at thee
At thy fall; that such a mighty city, and powerful prince, should be destroyed at once; that, from such a height of prosperity, they should be brought to so low an estate of adversity; this will be the astonishment of kings, merchants, and others, that knew the riches, power, and flourishing estate of Rome, as before observed: thou shalt be a terror;
to the said persons, who will be afraid to come nigh for fear of the same torments and punishment, ( Revelation 18:10 Revelation 18:15 ) , or, though thou "hast been a terror"; or "terrors"; exceeding terrible to others in time past, yet now, as the Targum,

``I will give thee (or make thee) as if thou wast not:''
and never shalt thou be any more;
as thou hast been, or after thy last destruction; so mystical Tyre or Babylon shall be no more, when once destroyed, ( Revelation 18:21 ) .

18 By your many sins and dishonest trade you have desecrated your sanctuaries. So I made a fire come out from you, and it consumed you, and I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching.
19 All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.’ ”

21 “Son of man, set your face against Sidon; prophesy against her
