John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and disperse them among the countries,.... Of which they might assure themselves, since the Lord had before spoken it, and here again repeats it:

and they shall know that I am the Lord; whose name alone is Jehovah, and does whatsoever he pleases; sets up kings, and puts them down; strengthens and weakens kingdoms just as seems good in his sight; none having any power but what is given by him, and which he can take away when he thinks fit.

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary

REFLECTIONS

PAUSE, Reader, over this chapter, and connect with it the former; and learn from both the sure and certain purposes of the Lord in their accomplishment. When we thus view the Lord Jehovah going forth to punish the nations, and especially with an eye for the injuries done to his people, what a solemn representation doth it afford of the sovereignty of God? Oh! could we but learn more humbly to bend before the just and all-wise decision of the Lord, in his dispensations both of men and things, how differently would be our estimate of right and wrong to what it now is? Here, in this chapter as well as in several others around, we behold the Lord's jealousy for his people in the punishment of the nations; in all which we ought to mark his sovereignty, and to bow down implicitly before it. Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? Wherefore and whence his dispensations are so directed? why Christ, his great gift, is held forth to one nation with a full, free, and extended hand, while others know not the Lord, nor the operation of his hand? who shall take upon him to determine? It is the Lord, (said an ancient deeply-exercised soul, under the heaviest afflictions,) let him do what seemeth him good. This was enough to stop all complaints. He adds no more. Blessed Lord! give me grace in the reading of thy judgments, and, marking thy mercies, to learn, like David, to sing of both, and to direct my song to thee. For sure I am thy glory is in all; and when this is the object to be attained, Egypt's destruction or Israel's deliverance, must be right. Again I say, Shall not the Judge of the earth do right?

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Ezekiel 30:26 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and disperse them among the countries; and they shall know that I [am] the LORD.

Ver. 26. See Ezekiel 30:23. They would hardly believe it, and therefore are so often assured of it.

Peter Pett's Commentary on the Bible

“And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and disperse them through the countries, and they will know that I am Yahweh.”

The importance of this comes out in the number of times it is repeated (Ezekiel 29:12; Ezekiel 30:23 compare Jeremiah 46:19). This was what had happened to Israel and Judah and therefore Egypt must outwardly suffer the same. It was not necessary however that it happen in the same way and to the same degree. It was the principle that was important. The war with Babylon would certainly result in refugees fleeing across the borders, and the armies may well have had to retreat into neighbouring allied countries before peace was made.
