Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 19:11

_ _ strong rods — princes of the royal house of David. The vine shot forth her branches like so many scepters, not creeping lowly on the ground like many vines, but trained aloft on a tree or wall. The mention of their former royal dignity, contrasting sadly with her present sunken state, would remind the Jews of their sins whereby they had incurred such judgments.

_ _ stature — (Daniel 4:11).

_ _ among the thick branches — that is, the central stock or trunk of the tree shot up highest “among its own branches” or offshoots, surrounding it. Emblematic of the numbers and resources of the people. Hengstenberg translates, “among the clouds.” But Ezekiel 31:3, Ezekiel 31:10, Ezekiel 31:14, supports English Version.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 19:10-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 19:11

Strong rods — Many excellent persons endowed with qualifications befitting kings, that they might sway the scepter. Exalted — Above the ordinary majesty of other kingdoms. Thick branches — This kingdom equalled, if not excelled, the greatest neighbour — kingdoms, and her kings exceeded all their neighbouring kings, in riches and power.
