    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 27:4

    Thy builders have perfected thy beauty - Under the allegory of a beautiful ship, the prophet, here and in the following verses, paints the glory of this ancient city. Horace describes the commonwealth of Rome by the same allegory, and is as minute in his description, Carm. lib. 1. Od. xiv: -

    Fluctus? O quid agis? Fortiter occupa

    Portum. Nonne video, ut

    Nudum remigio latus,

    Et malus celeri saucius Africo,

    Non Di, quos iterum pressa votes malo:

    Quamvis Pontica pinus,

    Sylvae filia nobilis,

    Jactes et genus, et nomen inutile

    Nil pictis timidus navita puppibus
