Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 25:15

_ _ (1 Samuel 13:1-14:52; 2 Chronicles 28:18). The “old hatred” refers to their continual enmity to the covenant-people. They lay along Judea on the seacoast at the opposite side from Ammon and Moab. They were overthrown by Uzziah (2 Chronicles 26:6), and by Hezekiah (2 Kings 18:8). Nebuchadnezzar overran the cities on the seacoast on his way to Egypt after besieging Tyre (Jeremiah 47:1-7). God will take vengeance on those who take the avenging of themselves out of His hands into their own (Romans 12:19-21; James 2:13).
