Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 17:15

_ _ he rebelled — God permitted this because of His wrath against Jerusalem (2 Kings 24:20).

_ _ horses — in which Egypt abounded and which were forbidden to Israel to seek from Egypt, or indeed to “multiply” at all (Deuteronomy 17:16; Isaiah 31:1, Isaiah 31:3; compare Isaiah 36:9). Diodorus Siculus [1.45] says that the whole region from Thebes to Memphis was filled with royal stalls, so that twenty thousand chariots with two horses in each could be furnished for war.

_ _ Shall he prosper? — The third time this question is asked, with an indignant denial understood (Ezekiel 17:9, Ezekiel 17:10). Even the heathen believed that breakers of an oath would not “escape” punishment.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 17:1-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 17:15

He — Zedekiah. Shall he break — Can perjury be the way for deliverance?
