SEV Biblia, Chapter 30:12 Y secaré los ríos, y entregaré la tierra en manos de malos, y destruiré la tierra y su plenitud por mano de extranjeros; yo, el SEÑOR, he hablado.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ezekiel 30:12 Verse 12. I will make the rivers dry] As the overflowing of the Nile was the grand cause of fertility to Egypt, the drying it up, or preventing that annual inundation, must be the cause of dearth, famine, &c. By rivers, we may understand the various canals cut from the Nile to carry water into the different parts of the land. When the Nile did not rise to its usual height these canals were quite dry.
Matthew Henry Commentary
The desolation of Egypt. (Ezek. 29:1-16) Also a promise of mercy to Israel. (Ezek. 29:17-21)
Ezek. 29:1-16 Worldly, carnal minds pride themselves in their property forgetting that whatever we have, we received it from God, and shoul use it for God. Why, then, do we boast? Self is the great idol whic all the world worships, in contempt of God and his sovereignty. God can force men out of that in which they are most secure and easy. Such one, and all that cleave to him, shall perish together. Thus end men' pride, presumption, and carnal security. The Lord is against those wh do harm to his people, and still more against those who lead them int sin. Egypt shall be a kingdom again, but it shall be the basest of the kingdoms; it shall have little wealth and power. History shows the complete fulfilment of this prophecy. God, not only in justice, but in wisdom and goodness to us, breaks the creature-stays on which we lean that they may be no more our confidence.
Ezek. 29:17-21 The besiegers of Tyre obtained little plunder. But when God employs ambitious or covetous men, he will recompense the according to the desires of their hearts; for every man shall have his reward. God had mercy in store for the house of Israel soon after. The history of nations best explains ancient prophecies. All events fulfi the Scriptures. Thus, in the deepest scenes of adversity, the Lord sow the seed of our future prosperity. Happy are those who desire his favour, grace, and image; they will delight in his service, and no covet any earthly recompence; and the blessings they have chosen shal be sure to them for ever __________________________________________________________________
