Put in military posts to keep possession of a conquered country, as the Philistines held the land of Israel at the beginning of Saul's reign (1 Samuel 10:5; 1 Samuel 13:3); David, Syria (2 Samuel 8:6; 2 Samuel 8:14). In Ezekiel 26:11, "thy strong garrisons" (matzeboth uzzeek ) literally, "the statues of thy strength", i.e. the forts. Or rather (Maurer), the obelisks in honor of the tutelary gods of Tyre (as Melecarte, the Tyrian Hercules whose temple stood in Old Tyre) shall go down to the ground before Nebuchadnezzar, the conqueror, just as he treated Egypt's idol statues (Jeremiah 43:11).
