Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 17:17

_ _ Pharaoh — Pharaoh-hophra (Jeremiah 37:7; Jeremiah 44:30), the successor of Necho (2 Kings 23:29).

_ _ Neither ... make for him — literally, “effect (anything) with him,” that is, be of any avail to Zedekiah. Pharaoh did not act in concert with him, for he was himself compelled to retire to Egypt.

_ _ by casting up mounts, etc. — So far from Pharaoh doing so for Jerusalem, this was what Nebuchadnezzar did against it (Jeremiah 52:4). Calvin Maurer, etc., refer it to Nebuchadnezzar, “when Nebuchadnezzar shall cast up mounts.”
