Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 25:4

_ _ men of ... east — literally, “children of the East,” the nomad tribes of Arabia-Deserta, east of the Jordan and the Dead Sea.

_ _ palaces — their nomadic encampments or folds, surrounded with mud walls, are so called in irony. Where thy “palaces” once stood, there shall their very different “palaces” stand. Fulfilled after the ravaging of their region by Nebuchadnezzar, shortly after the destruction of Jerusalem (compare Ezekiel 21:22; Jeremiah 49:1-28).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 25:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 25:4

The men of the east — The Arabians, associates of Nebuchadnezzar, who recompensed their service, with giving them this country when it was conquered, as it was five years after the desolation of Jerusalem.
