Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 47:10

_ _ En-gedi ... En-eglaim — En-gedi (meaning “fountain of the kid”), anciently, Hazazon-Tamar, now Ain-Jidy; west of the Dead Sea; David’s place of refuge from Saul. En-eglaim means “fountain of two calves,” on the confines of Moab, over against En-gedi, and near where Jordan enters the Dead Sea (Isaiah 15:8). These two limits are fixed on, to comprise between them the whole Dead Sea.

_ _ fish ... according to their kinds — Jerome quotes an ancient theory that “there are a hundred fifty-three kinds of fishes,” all of which were taken by the apostles (John 21:11), and not one remained uncaptured; signifying that both the noble and baseborn, the rich and the poor, and every class, are being drawn out of the sea of the world to salvation. Compare Matthew 13:47, the gospel net; the apostles being fishermen, at first literally, afterwards spiritually (Matthew 4:19).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 47:1-12.

(f) Signifying that when God bestows his mercies in such abundance the ministers will by their preaching win many.

(g) Which were cities at the corners of the salt or dead sea.

(h) They will be here of all sorts and in as great abundance as in the great ocean where they are bred.
