Treasury of Scripture

Then will I make their waters deep, and cause their rivers to run like oil, said the Lord GOD.









(14) Deep should rather be rendered quiet. When the restless ambition of Egypt should be curbed, there would come about peace and quiet prosperity. This is thought by many to be a glance forward at the Messianic blessing of the future; but it does not necessarily look so far.
