    Definitions for Ezekiel 47:10

    Sea - Large basin.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 47:10

    The fishers shall stand upon it - On the above plan of interpretation these must mean -

    1. The apostles of our Lord Jesus.

    2. The preachers of the everlasting Gospel. See Matthew 4:19.

    From En-gedi - At the southern extremity of the Dead Sea.

    Unto En-eglaim - At the northern extremity of the same.

    Their fish shall be according to their kinds - Every kind of fish, and the fish all excellent of their kinds. All nations, and kindreds, and people shall be called by the Gospel; it shall not be an excluding system like that of Judaism, for its Author tasted death for every man.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 47:10

    "En-gedi" (see 1 Samuel 23:29) was about the middle of the western shore of the Dead Sea.

    En-eglaim does not occur elsewhere. Its form indicates that it was one of the double cities of Moab (see Ezekiel 25:9 note). It has been identified with "Ain-el-Feshkah" to the north on the western bank of the Dead Sea. On this supposition, "from En-eglaim to En-gedi" would be the line of coast from the most northern fountain to the principal fountain southward.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 47:10

    47:10 En - gedi - Which lay on the south - west of the lake of Sodom. En - eglaim - A city on the north - east of the Dead - sea. To spread forth nets - All along on the west - side of this sea to dry them.
