John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And I will set fire in Egypt,.... Kindle a war there, which shall consume it; see Ezekiel 30:8,

Sin shall have great pain; as a woman in travail, seeing its destruction is just at hand; the same with Pelusium, as before:

and No shall be rent asunder, the walls of it shall be broken down by the enemy, or a breach shall be made in it, like the breach of waters which were about it; see Nahum 3:8,

and Noph shall have distresses daily: that is, Memphis, as before; enemies shall surround it daily, as the Targum; shall besiege and distress it, until it is taken: or, "in the daytime"; their enemies should not come as thieves in the night, openly in the day. Abendana interprets it of their unfortunate day, their star being unlucky.

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

distresses daily — Maurer translates, “enemies during the day,” that is, open enemies who do not wait for the covert of night to make their attacks (compare Jeremiah 6:4; Jeremiah 15:8). However, the Hebrew, though rarely, is sometimes rendered (see Psalm 13:2) as in English Version.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

Will set fire: see Ezekiel 30:14, and Ezekiel 20:47.

Sin: see Ezekiel 30:15. Great pain: see Ezekiel 30:9.

No: Ezekiel 30:14,15.

Rent asunder; her walls, and towers, and fortresses battered, torn, and broken through by the continued violence of engines, and by the assaults of the soldiers.

Noph: see Ezekiel 30:13.

Distresses: being the chief city where king and councils sat, whence orders should be given, whither all intelligences were brought, all should be so bad abroad, that nothing but fears and distresses fill their ears, mouths, and hearts, beside the wants that would increase daily on them.

And I will set fire in Egypt: Sin shall have great pain, and No shall be rent asunder, and Noph shall have distresses daily.

Noph shall have distresses daily. Maurer translates, 'enemies during the day' - i:e., open enemies, who do not wait for the covert of night to make their attacks (cf. Jeremiah 6:4; Jeremiah 15:8, "a spoiler at noonday"). However, the Hebrew [ yowmaam (Hebrew #3119)], though rarely, is sometimes rendered (see Psalms 13:2), as in the English version, "daily."
