Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 26:15-21.


Ezekiel 26:17

_ _ inhabited of seafaring men — that is, which was frequented by merchants of various sea-bordering lands [Grotius]. Fairbairn translates with Peschito, “Thou inhabitant of the seas” (the Hebrew literal meaning). Tyre rose as it were out of the seas as if she got thence her inhabitants, being peopled so closely down to the waters. So Venice was called “the bride of the sea.”

_ _ strong in the sea — through her insular position.

_ _ cause their terror to be on all that haunt it — namely, the sea. The Hebrew is rather, “they put their terror upon all her (the city’s) inhabitants,” that is, they make the name of every Tyrian to be feared [Fairbairn].
