    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 29:21

    Will I cause the horn of the house of Israel to bud - This may refer generally to the restoration; but particularly to Zerubbabel, who became one of the leaders of the people from Babylon. Or it may respect Daniel, or Mordecai, or Jeconiah, who, about this time, was brought out of prison by Evil-merodach, and afterwards kindly treated.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 29:21

    Egypt being the antagonist of the people of God, her overthrow inaugurated the triumph of good over evil.

    The horn ... - Or, "an horn to bud forth to the house of Israel."

    I will give thee the opening of the mouth - When these things should begin to come to pass the prophet's mouth should be opened to declare their meaning, and to make known the end to which all was tending.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 29:21

    29:21 The horn - Jehoiakim, who was then advanced by Evil - Merodach. The opening of the mouth - Thou shalt have liberty, to open thy mouth in comforting the good among them, and to give praise to God.
