Commentary on
Ezekiel 31:1-9

Pharaoh Warned of Assyriaís Fate

31:1  And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the third month, in the first day of the month, that the word of Yehuveh came unto me, saying,
31:2  Son of man, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to his multitude; Whom art thou like in thy greatness?
31:3  Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs.
31:4  The waters made him great, the deep set him up on high with her rivers running round about his plants, and sent her little rivers unto all the trees of the field.
31:5  Therefore his height was exalted above all the trees of the field, and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became long because of the multitude of waters, when he shot forth.
31:6  All the fowls of heaven made their nests in his boughs, and under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth their young, and under his shadow dwelt all great nations.
31:7  Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his branches: for his root was by great waters.
31:8  The cedars in the garden of Elohim could not hide him: the fir trees were not like his boughs, and the chesnut trees were not like his branches; nor any tree in the garden of Elohim was like unto him in his beauty.
31:9  I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of Elohim, envied him.
