Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 31:6

_ _ fowls ... made ... nests in ... boughs — so Ezekiel 17:23; Daniel 4:12. The gospel kingdom shall gather all under its covert, for their good and for the glory of God, which the world kingdoms did for evil and for self-aggrandizement (Matthew 13:32).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
