Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 19:14

_ _ fire ... out of a rod of her branches — The Jews’ disaster was to be ascribed, not so much to the Chaldeans as to themselves; the “fire out of the rod” is God’s wrath kindled by the perjury of Zedekiah (Ezekiel 17:18). “The anger of the Lord” against Judah is specified as the cause why Zedekiah was permitted to rebel against Babylon (2 Kings 24:20; compare Judges 9:15), thus bringing Nebuchadnezzar against Jerusalem.

_ _ no strong rod ... sceptre to rule — No more kings of David’s stock are now to rule the nation. Not at least until “the Lord shall send the rod of His strength (“Messiah,” Psalms 110:2; Isaiah 11:1) out of Zion,” to reign first as a spiritual, then hereafter as a literal king.

_ _ is ... and shall be for a lamentation — Part of the lamentation (that as to Jehoahaz and Jehoiakim) was matter of history as already accomplished; part (as to Zedekiah) was yet to be fulfilled; or, this prophecy both is a subject for lamentation, and shall be so to distant posterity.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 19:10-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 19:14

Fire — The fire of rebellion, kindled by Zedekiah, who is of the blood — royal. No strong rod — The regal dignity is ceased.
