The world empires were changing and shifting during the time of Judah’s fall. They were all pushing their own power and greatness. It took quite a bit of force and skill for Babylon to conquer the nations that resisted them. One of these great kingdoms was ancient Egypt. They were an old nation, with a history of military accomplishment and survival. All of this changed with the emergence of Babylon in the 6th century BC.
The LORD was speaking to His prophets at this time, one of whom was Ezekiel who would write what became our Bible reading today in Ezekiel chapter 30. Ezekiel was a man who was taken as an exile from Jerusalem, before its destruction, to the outskirts of Babylon. So, if anyone had a reason to support nations resisting Babylon, it was Ezekiel. Instead, Ezekiel was faithful to speak what God said about it.
