     [ Illustration: Today's painting features several signs of doom -- desolation, destruction, and impending death -- all of which were about to come upon Egypt. (A counterpart by the same artist features signs of hope). ]


[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]

     Explanation: In Ezekiel 31, the LORD compared Pharaoh to Assyria, and he compared both to a great tree among the great trees in the Garden of Eden. However, said the LORD, Egypt, like Assyria, would be brought down to the lower parts of the earth and be among the slain (v. 18).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

(a). Prophecy Against the King of Egypt (31:1-18)

     1 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the third month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to his multitude;

5 Therefore his height was exalted above all the trees of the field,
and his boughs were multiplied,
and his branches became long
because of the multitude of waters,
when he shot forth.
6 All the fowls of heaven
made their nests in his boughs,
and under his branches
did all the beasts of the field bring forth their young,
and under his shadow dwelt all great nations.

7 Thus was he fair in his greatness,
in the length of his branches:
for his root was by great waters.
8 The cedars in the garden of God
could not hide him [match him]:
the fir trees were not like his boughs,
and the chesnut trees were not like his branches;
nor any tree in the garden of God
was like unto him in his beauty.
9 I have made him fair
by the multitude of his branches:
so that all the trees of Eden,
that were in the garden of God,
envied him.

     10 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast lifted up thyself in height, and he hath shot up his top among the thick boughs, and his heart is lifted up in his height; 11 I have therefore delivered him into the hand of the mighty one of the heathen; he shall surely deal with him [doing he shall do to him]: I have driven him out for his wickedness.

     12 And strangers, the terrible of the nations, have cut him off, and have left him: upon the mountains and in all the valleys his branches are fallen, and his boughs are broken by all the rivers of the land; and all the people of the earth are gone down from his shadow, and have left him.

     13 Upon his ruin shall all the fowls of the heaven remain, and all the beasts of the field shall be upon his branches: 14 To the end that none of all the trees by the waters exalt themselves for their height, neither shoot up [this] their top among the thick boughs, neither their trees stand up in their height, all that drink water: for they are all delivered unto death, to the nether parts of the earth, in the midst of the children of men, with them that go down to the pit.

     15 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when he went down to the grave I caused a mourning: I covered [this] the deep for him, and I restrained the floods thereof, and the great waters were stayed: and I caused Lebanon to mourn for him, and all the trees of the field fainted for him. 16 I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him down to [this] hell with them that descend into the pit:

     and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, shall be comforted in the nether parts of the earth. 17 They also went down into hell with him unto them that be slain with the sword; and they that were his arm, that dwelt under his shadow in the midst of the heathen.

     18 To whom art thou thus like in glory and in greatness among the trees of Eden? yet shalt thou be bought down with the trees of Eden unto the nether parts of the earth: thou shalt lie in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that be slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith the Lord GOD.
