Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 17:6

_ _ vine of low stature — not now, as before, a stately “cedar”; the kingdom of Judah was to be prosperous, but not elevated.

_ _ branches turned toward him — expressing the fealty of Zedekiah as a vassal looking up to Nebuchadnezzar, to whom Judah owed its peace and very existence as a separate state. The “branches” mean his sons and the other princes and nobles.

_ _ The roots ... under him — The stability of Judah depended on Babylon. The repetition “branches” and “springs” is in order to mark the ingratitude of Zedekiah, who, not content with moderate prosperity, revolted from him to whom he had sworn allegiance.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 17:1-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 17:6

Of low stature — They grew and flourish, while they owned their state tributary to Babylon. Toward him — Nebuchadnezzar as their protector, and sovereign lord. The roots — All the firmness, fruitfulness, and life of this state, was in subjection to him.

(d) This was Zedekiah's kingdom.

(e) That is, might not have power to rebel against Babylon, as in (Ezekiel 17:14).
