Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 30:21

_ _ broken ... arm of Pharaoh — (Psalms 37:17; Jeremiah 48:25). Referring to the defeat which Pharaoh-hophra sustained from the Chaldeans, when trying to raise the siege of Jerusalem (Jeremiah 37:5, Jeremiah 37:7); and previous to the deprivation of Pharaoh-necho of all his conquests from the river of Egypt to the Euphrates (2 Kings 24:7; Jeremiah 46:2); also to the Egyptian disaster in Cyrene.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 30:20-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 30:21

Have broken — Partly by the victory of the Chaldeans over Pharaoh — necho, partly by the victory of the Cyreneans over Pharaoh — hophra. The sword — None can heal the wounds that God gives but himself. They whom he disables, cannot again hold the sword.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 30:21

Son of man, (f) I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and, lo, it shall not be bound up to be healed, to put a bandage to bind it, to make it strong to hold the sword.

(f) For Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Pharaoh Nebo at Carchemish, (Jeremiah 46:26).

Son of man:
This prophecy was delivered soon after the Egyptians under Pharaoh-hophra had come to relieve Jerusalem, and some months before the city was taken, being the eleventh year of Jeremiah's captivity, and answering to April 26, am 3416. When the king of Babylon took from the king of Egypt, in the days of Pharaoh-necho, all his dominions in Asia, one of his arms was broken. God now declared that he should never recover these territories, or gain any ascendancy in that part of the world; nay, that his other arm, which was now strong, should soon be broken, and rendered utterly useless. This was fulfilled when Hophra was dethroned and driven into Upper Egypt by Amasis; and then Nebuchadnezzar, taking advantage of this civil discord, invaded and conquered that kingdom, and enslaved, dispersed, and carried captive the Egyptians.
