Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 29:6

_ _ staff of reed to ... Israel — alluding to the reeds on the banks of the Nile, which broke if one leaned upon them (see on Ezekiel 29:4; Isaiah 36:6). All Israel’s dependence on Egypt proved hurtful instead of beneficial (Isaiah 30:1-5).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
