Ezekiel 26:2 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Tyrus hath said - From this it would appear that Jerusalem had been taken, which was on the fourth month of this year; but it is possible that the prophet speaks of the event beforehand.

She is broken that was the gates of the people - Jerusalem, a general emporium.

I shall be replenished - The merchandise that went to Jerusalem will come to me, (to Tyre.).
