Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 28:3

_ _ Ezekiel ironically alludes to Ithbaal’s overweening opinion of the wisdom of himself and the Tyrians, as though superior to that of Daniel, whose fame had reached even Tyre as eclipsing the Chaldean sages. “Thou art wiser,” namely, in thine own opinion (Zechariah 9:2).

_ _ no secret — namely, forgetting riches (Ezekiel 28:4).

_ _ that they can hide — that is, that can be hidden.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 28:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 28:3

Wiser — In thy own thoughts. Daniel — Who was then famous for his wisdom.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 28:3

Behold, thou [art] wiser than (b) Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:

(b) Thus he speaks by derision: for Daniel had declared notable signs of his wisdom in Babylon, when Ezekiel wrote this.
