Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 17:24

_ _ I ... brought down the high — the very attribute given to God by the virgin mother of Him, under whom this was to be accomplished.

_ _ high ... low tree — that is, princes elevated ... depressed. All the empires of the world, represented by Babylon, once flourishing (“green”), shall be brought low before the once depressed (“dry”), but then exalted, kingdom of Messiah and His people, the head of whom shall be Israel (Daniel 2:44).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 17:22-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 17:24

The trees — The great ones on earth. The high tree — The kingdom of Babylon, which was brought low indeed, when overthrown by Darius and Cyrus.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

And all the (q) trees of the field shall know that I the LORD have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish: I the LORD have spoken and have done [it].

(q) All the world will know that I have plucked down the proud enemies, and set up my Church which was low and contemned.
