New Living Translation
No longer will Israel's scornful neighbors prick and tear at her like briers and thorns. For then they will know that I am the Sovereign LORD.
King James Bible

Young's Literal Translation

Ezekiel 28:24 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
28:24 A pricking briar - By these two metaphors the prophet points out the troublesome neighbours of the Jews, such as Moab, Ammon, Edom, Tyre, and Zidon. This never had a full accomplishment yet. But it will, for the scripture cannot be broken.
