    Definitions for Ezekiel 26:2

    Tyrus - Tyre, city of.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 26:2

    Tyrus hath said - From this it would appear that Jerusalem had been taken, which was on the fourth month of this year; but it is possible that the prophet speaks of the event beforehand.

    She is broken that was the gates of the people - Jerusalem, a general emporium.

    I shall be replenished - The merchandise that went to Jerusalem will come to me, (to Tyre.).

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 26:2

    Gates - i. e., one gate of two leaves.

    The people - Or, the peoples (and in Ezekiel 27:3), the plural expressing the fact that many peoples passed through Jerusalem, as the central place on the highway of commerce, e. g., in the reign of Solomon. This was viewed with jealousy by Tyre, who owed her greatness to the same cause, and in the true spirit of mercantile competition exulted in the thought that the trade of Jerusalem would be diverted into her markets. Render it: Aha! She is broken - the gate of the peoples! She is turned unto me. I shall be filled. She is laid waste.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 26:2

    26:2 Because - Probably God revealed this to the prophet as soon as these insulting Tyrians spoke it. The gates - The great mart of nations, people from all parts. She is turned - The trading interest will turn to me.
