    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 27:19

    Dan also and Javan - It is probable that both these words mean some of the Grecian islands.

    Going to and fro - They both took and brought - imported and exported: but מאוזל meuzal, from uzal, may be a proper name. What place is signified I cannot tell, unless it be Azal, a name, according to Kamoos, of the capital of Arabia Felix.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 27:19

    Dan also - Hebrew Vedan, a place in Arabia, not elsewhere mentioned.

    Going to and fro - Better as in the margin, a proper name, "Meuzal," or rather, "from Uzal" which was the ancient name of Senaa the capital of Yemen in Arabia. Greek merchants would carry on commerce between Uzal and Tyre.

    Bright iron - literally, "wrought iron;" iron worked into plates smooth and polished. Yemen was famous for the manufacture of sword-blades.

    Cassia - The inner bark of an aromatic plant.

    Calamus - A fragrant reed-like plant (see Exodus 30:23-24). Both are special products of India and Arabia.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 27:19

    27:19 Javan - In the isle of Meroe, in Egypt.
