Definitions for Ezekiel 17 :22

Crop - To pluck or break off.
Eminent - Tumors; hemorrhoids.

Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 17 :22

I will also take of the highest branch of the high cedar - I will raise up another monarchy, which shall come in the line of David, namely, the Messiah; who shall appear as a tender plant, as to his incarnation; but he shall be high and eminent; his Church, the royal city, the highest and purest ever seen on the face of the earth.

Barnes' Commentary on Ezekiel 17 :22

A contrast between the dealings of Nebuchadnezzar and of Yahweh. Nebuchadnezzar "cut off," Yahweh will "set up" the topshoot; Nebuchadnezzar "carried it into a land of traffic," Yahweh will "plant it in the mountain of the height of Israel." Nebuchadnezzar set his favorite as a "vine, lowly" though not poor, in the place where such trees as the humble "willow" grow and thrive. Yahweh's favorite is like the "lofty cedar, eminent upon a high mountain."

The highest branch of the high cedar - The rightful representative of the royal house of David, the Messiah.

Tender one - The Messiah. This prophecy rests upon Isaiah 11:1, Isaiah 11:10.

Wesley's Commentary on Ezekiel 17 :22

17:22 The highest branch - Of the royal seed; of the highest branch that is heir to the throne; namely, the Messiah. An high mountain - Upon mount Zion. Eminent - Not for outward splendor, but for spiritual advantages.
