CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible

The sea will rise over Babylon; its roaring waves will cover her.

therefore I am against you and against your streams, and I will make the land of Egypt a ruin and a desolate waste from Migdol to Aswan, as far as the border of Cush.
But now many nations are gathered against you. They say, "Let her be defiled, let our eyes gloat over Zion!"
"I am against you," declares the LORD Almighty. "I will lift your skirts over your face. I will show the nations your nakedness and the kingdoms your shame.
