    Definitions for Ezekiel 29:14

    Base - Lowly; meek.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 29:14

    Into the land of Pathros - Supposed to mean the Delta, a country included between the branches of the Nile, called Δ delta, from its being in the form of the Greek letter of that name. It may mean the Pathrusim, in Upper Egypt, near to the Thebaid. This is most likely.

    Shall be there a base kingdom - That is, it shall continue to be tributary. It is upwards of two thousand years since this prophecy was delivered, and it has been uninterruptedly fulfilling to the present hour.

    1. Egypt became tributary to the Babylonians under Amasis.

    2. After the ruin of the Babylonish empire, it became subject to the Persians.

    3. After the Persians, it came into the hands of the Macedonians.

    4. After the Macedonians it fell into the hands of the Romans.

    5. After the division of the Roman empire it was subdued by the Saracens.

    6. About a.d. 1250, it came into the hands of the Mameluke slaves.

    7. Selim, the ninth emperor of the Turks, conquered the Mamelukes, a.d. 1517, and annexed Egypt to the Ottoman empire, of which it still continues to be a province, governed by a pacha and twenty-four beys, who are always advanced from servitude to the administration of public affairs. So true is it that Egypt, once so glorious, is the basest of kingdoms. See Newton on the prophecies.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 29:14
