SEV Biblia, Chapter 31:1 Â¶ Y aconteció en el año undécimo, en el mes tercero, al primero del mes, que vino Palabra del SEÑOR a mí, diciendo:
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ezekiel 31:1 Verse 1. In the eleventh year] On Sunday, June 19, A.M. 3416, according to Abp. Usher; a month before Jerusalem was taken by the Chaldeans.
Matthew Henry Commentary
The glory of Assyria. (Ezek. 31:1-9) Its fall, and the like for Egypt (Ezek. 31:10-18)
Ezek. 31:1-9 The falls of others, both into sin and ruin, warn us no to be secure or high-minded. The prophet is to show an instance of on whom the king of Egypt resembled in greatness, the Assyrian, compare to a stately cedar. Those who excel others, make themselves the object of envy; but the blessings of the heavenly paradise are not liable to such alloy. The utmost security that any creature can give, is but lik the shadow of a tree, a scanty and slender protection. But let us fle to God for protection, there we shall be safe. His hand must be owne in the rising of the great men of the earth, and we must not envy them Though worldly people may seem to have firm prosperity, yet it onl seems so.
Ezek. 31:10-18 The king of Egypt resembled the king of Assyria in his greatness: here we see he resembles him in his pride. And he shal resemble him in his fall. His own sin brings his ruin. None of ou comforts are ever lost, but what have been a thousand times forfeited When great men fall, many fall with them, as many have fallen befor them. The fall of proud men is for warning to others, to keep the humble. See how low Pharaoh lies; and see what all his pomp and prid are come to. It is best to be a lowly tree of righteousness, yieldin fruit to the glory of God, and to the good of men. The wicked man i often seen flourishing like the cedar, and spreading like the green ba tree, but he soon passes away, and his place is no more found. Let u then mark the perfect man, and behold the upright, for the end of tha man is peace __________________________________________________________________
