In this chapter we have, I. A continuation of the
prophecy against Egypt, which we had in the latter part of the
foregoing chapter, just before the desolation of that once
flourishing kingdom was completed by Nebuchadnezzar, in which is
foretold the destruction of all her allies and confederates, all
her interests and concerns, and the several steps which the king of
Babylon should take in pushing on this destruction, ver. 1-19. II. A repetition of a
former prophecy against Egypt, just before the desolation of it
begun by their own bad conduct, which gradually weakened them and
prepared the way for the king of Babylon, ver. 20-26. It is all much to the same
purport with what we had before.
