thy timber and thy dust
26:12 thy timber and thy dust. See notes on Ezekiel 26:4,5. This remarkable prophecy was literally fulfilled over 250 years later when Alexander built his causeway to the island out of the “stones” and “timber” and “dust” of the old city, leaving it as bare as the top of a rock. The prophecies of God’s Word may be given far in advance of their fulfillment, but are always fulfilled eventually, literally and completely. There are no prophecies in the whole sphere of occult religion like these.
