John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And I will pour out my fury upon Sin, the strength of Egypt,.... Either the city Sais, as the Septuagint and Arabic versions; or rather Pelusium, as the Vulgate Latin version, so called from "pelos" which signifies "clay" in the Greek language; and the same "Sin" signifies in the Chaldee, Psalm 18:43, and as now called Tineh, from טין, "clay": it had a very fine haven, and may be called the strength of Egypt, it lying at the entrance of it; and having a strong fortified tower, it was difficult to enter into it; but could not stand before the wrath and fury of the Lord of hosts, when he sent the Chaldeans to it. It is thought by some to be the same with Pithom, built by the first of the pastor kings of Egypt, and fortified by him, Exodus 1:11, according to ManethoF26Apud Joseph. contr. Apion. l. 1. c. 14. , he put into it a garrison of two hundred and forty thousand men; and the same writer says it contained ten thousand acres of land; according to AdrichomiusF1Theatrum Terrae Sanctae, p. 122, 123. , it was two and a half miles in compass, and near it was a vast hollow, which extended to Mount Cassius, and which made the way into Egypt on that side difficult; and is now, as he says, called "campus de Gallo"; in which he is mistaken, as well as Thevenot, and others, who take it to be the same with Damieta:

and I will cut off the multitude of No; the numerous inhabitants of it; hence called "populous No", Nahum 3:8, or "Hamon No"; See Gill on Ezekiel 30:14; here, as before observed, the Septuagint version renders it Memphis; as does also the Arabic version. Some take it, as before, to be the Egyptian Thebes, where was a temple dedicated to Jupiter Hammon; and which city, PausaniasF2Arcadica, sive l. 8. p. 509. Vid. Juvenal. Satyr. 15. ver. 6. says, was reduced to nothing in his time.

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

Sin — that is, Pelusium, the frontier fortress on the northeast, therefore called “the strength (that is, the key) of Egypt.” It stands in antithesis to No or Thebes at the opposite end of Egypt; that is, I will afflict Egypt from one end to the other.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

Will pour my fury: see Ezekiel 21:31.

Sin; either Sain, or more likely Pelusium, which was a frontier, and secured the entrance of Egypt from the desert of Sin, was the key of Egypt, and therefore always well fortified and strongly garrisoned; it was called Damtiata.

The strength of Egypt; one of the principal munitions of Egypt; for it was a good and large haven, and was strengthened with all needful fortifications.

The multitude, or the riches and tumultuous noise which the multitudes thereof made. If we read as the margin, it is plain, God does threaten Pelusium after No is cut off; if we retain our own translation, we must think of another city of that name, which God threatens with Sin. Now this may be Thebe Egyptiacae or this city may be Hamon No, called Diospolis, the city of Jupiter; possibly it may be the same mentioned already, and the threat repeated to confirm it.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

15.Sin — Supposed to be Pelusium. The Egyptian name for Pelusium has not yet been found, but the meaning of Sin in Hebrew corresponds exactly to that of Pelusium in Greek. This city guarded the northern entrance into Egypt. To-day its site is marked by yellow sand and a poisonous swamp.

Multitude of No — In Hebrews (almost) Amon No. (Compare Ezekiel 30:14.)

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(15) Sin is Pelusium, so called from the marshes around it, on the easternmost branch of the Nile, only two-and-a-half miles from the sea. It was the frontier city, strongly fortified, and considered rightly as the key of Egypt, and hence called in the text its “strength.” It is mentioned again in Ezekiel 30:16. The expression, “distresses daily” (literally, by day), applied to Noph (Memphis), is a difficult one; it is understood by many as perpetually, but more probably means distresses in the open day. Its enemies shall make no covert attack, but come upon it boldly.

And I will pour my fury upon Sin, the strength of Egypt; and I will cut off the multitude of No.
I will pour
Psalms 11:6; Nahum 1:6; Revelation 16:1
Sin
or, Pelusium. Now Tineh, a town of Egypt, situated at the eastern extremity of the Delta, twenty stadia from the Mediterranean, near the lake of Menzaleh, and upon a branch of the Nile, to which it gave name. It was the key of Egypt on the side of Judea and Syria, and was therefore strongly fortified and garrisoned; but it is now quite in ruins.
