Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible

Ezekiel 26

Verses 1-21

The doom of the two dealt with Tyre and Sidon, but principally with Tyre. Concerning her, the prophet first made a general statement describing her sin, and the judgment determined against her, declaring that the purpose was that she also would know Jehovah. The sin of Tyre had finally expressed itself in her rejoicing over the downfall of Jerusalem, and her expectation of enrichment therefrom. On account of this the prophet declared that Jehovah was against Tyre, and that He would so utterly destroy her that she would be but a bare rock on which fishermen would spread their nets.

He then proceeded to describe in detail the process of judgment. Nebuchadnezzar would come with his armies and his engines of war and completely overthrow the city, making spoil of her riches and laying all her glory in the dust. So terrible would be her downfall that all the princes of the sea would be filled with fear and astonishment, and lament over her.

This prophecy was fulfilled with absolute accuracy of detail. The historic account of the downfall of Tyre is remarkable reading in the light of Ezekiel's foretelling.
