Definitions for Ezekiel 29 :6

Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 29 :6

They have been a staff of reed - An inefficient and faithless ally. The Israelites expected assistance from them when Nebuchadnezzar came against Jerusalem; and they made a feint to help them, but retired when Nebuchadnezzar went against them. Thus were the Jews deceived and ultimately ruined, see Ezekiel 29:7.

Barnes's Commentary on Ezekiel 29 :6

Staff of reed - The "reed" was especially appropriate to Egypt as the natural product of its river.

Wesley's Commentary on Ezekiel 29 :6
