Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 27:23

_ _ Haran — the dwelling-place of Abraham in Mesopotamia, after he moved from Ur (Genesis 11:31).

_ _ Canneh — Calneh, an Assyrian city on the Tigris; the Ctesiphon of the Greeks (Genesis 10:10).

_ _ Eden — probably a region in Babylonia (see Genesis 2:8).

_ _ Chilmad — a compound; the place designated by Ptolemy “Gaala of Media.” The Chaldee version interprets it of Media. Henderson refers it to Carmanda, which Xenophon describes as a large city beyond the Euphrates.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 27:1-25.
