    Definitions for Ezekiel 31:11

    Heathen - People; nations; non-Jews.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 31:11

    The mighty one of the heathen - Nebuchadnezzar. It is worthy of notice, that Nebuchadnezzar, in the first year of his reign, rendered himself master of Nineveh, the capital of the Assyrian empire. See Sedar Olam. This happened about twenty years before Ezekiel delivered this prophecy; on this account, Ashshur, Ezekiel 31:3, may relate to the Assyrians, to whom it is possible the prophet here compares the Egyptians. But see the note on Ezekiel 31:3.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 31:11

    More accurately: Therefore I will deliver him, etc ... he shall surely deal with him. I have driven him out, etc.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 31:11

    31:11 Him - The proud king of Assyria, Sardanapalus. The mighty one - Arbaces, who first struck at the root of this Cedar, might well be styled the mighty one of the heathen, since he could bring together four hundred thousand of Medes, Persians, Babylonians, and Arabians.
