Son of man, set thy face against Zidon, and prophesy against it,

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

28:21 Zidon. Tyre’s sister city in Phoenicia was also to be conquered by Nebuchadnezzar. Sidon, in fact, was older than Tyre (although Tyre had surpassed it in importance and wealth), for it had been founded by a son of Canaan himself (Genesis 10:15), and had been notoriously wicked through all the centuries since. It was not to be destroyed like Tyre, however, but would be subjected frequently to violence and pestilence (Ezekiel 28:23). It still survives today, but has been the scene of bloody fighting in almost endless wars and battles throughout the past 2500 years; that is still true today in Lebanon, where it is located in the modern world.
