Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 32:6

_ _ land wherein thou swimmest — Egypt: the land watered by the Nile, the source of its fertility, wherein thou swimmest (carrying on the image of the crocodile, that is, wherein thou dost exercise thy wanton power at will). Irony. The land shall still afford seas to swim in, but they shall be seas of blood. Alluding to the plague (Exodus 7:19; Revelation 8:8). Havernick translates, “I will water the land with what flows from thee, even thy blood, reaching to the mountains”: “with thy blood overflowing even to the mountains.” Perhaps this is better.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 32:1-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 32:6

Even to the mountains — Blood shall be poured forth, as if it were to rise to the very mountains. Full of thee — O thy blood, and of thy carcasses cast into them.
