Fish of Your Rivers to Stick to Your Scales

I’ve never gone fishing. I’ve never tried to put a worm on a hook. I’ve never tried to clean a fish. When I read today’s verse, I thought it was something only a fisherman would understand.

Ezekiel 29:4, “But I will put hooks in your jaws, and will cause the fish of your rivers to stick to your scales…” Modern English Version

* * * * * * *

Hooks in your jaws – An allusion to the ancient way of taking and destroying the crocodile….Fish…stick to your scales – As the crocodile, the lord of the Nile, represents the royal power of Egypt, so the fish represents the people…” Ellicott’s Commentary for English Readers

* * * * * * *

Fish…stick to your scales –I will cause even thy own people to press thee hard, and to be a torment to thee.” Benson Commentary
