18 Now the coastlands tremble on the day of your fall; the islands in the sea are terrified at your collapse.'
18 Now shall the isles tremble in the day of thy fall; yea, the isles that are in the sea shall be troubled at thy departure.
18 Now the coastlands tremble on the day of your fall, and the coastlands that are on the sea are dismayed at your passing.'
18 But now the islands are shaking at the sound of your crash, Ocean islands in tremors from the impact of your fall.'
18 Now the coastlands tremble on the day of your fall; Yes, the coastlands by the sea are troubled at your departure." '
18 Now the coastlands tremble at your fall. The islands are dismayed as you disappear.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Ezekiel 26:18
Commentary on Ezekiel 26:15-21
(Read Ezekiel 26:15-21)
See how high, how great Tyre had been. See how low Tyre is made. The fall of others should awaken us out of security. Every discovery of the fulfilment of a Scripture prophecy, is like a miracle to confirm our faith. All that is earthly is vanity and vexation. Those who now have the most established prosperity, will soon be out of sight and forgotten.
