Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 39:2

_ _ leave but the sixth part of theeMargin, “strike thee with six plagues” (namely, pestilence, blood, overflowing rain, hailstones, fire, brimstone, Ezekiel 38:22); or, “draw thee back with an hook of six teeth” (Ezekiel 38:4), the six teeth being those six plagues. Rather, “lead thee about” [Ludovicus De Dieu and Septuagint]. As Antiochus was led (to his ruin) to leave Egypt for an expedition against Palestine, so shall the last great enemy of God be.

_ _ north parts — from the extreme north [Fairbairn].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 39:1-7.
