Ezekiel 27:7

_ _ broidered ... sail — The ancients embroidered their sails often at great expense, especially the Egyptians, whose linen, still preserved in mummies, is of the finest texture.

_ _ Elishah — Greece; so called from Elis, a large and ancient division of Peloponnesus. Pausanias says that the best of linen was produced in it, and in no other part of Greece; called by Homer, Alisium.

_ _ that which covered thee — thy awning.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 27:1-25.

The isles of Elishah — Probably the sea — coast of Aeolis in the lesser Asia, the inhabitants whereof were excellent in the skill of dying wool. Which covered — He speaks of the coverings they used in their ships or galleys: their tilts, as our boat — men call them.
