CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
31:3 A cedar - Like the most goodly cedar for strength and beauty.
But the godly will flourish like palm trees and grow strong like the cedars of Lebanon.
But look! The Lord, the LORD of Heaven's Armies, will chop down the mighty tree of Assyria with great power! He will cut down the proud. That lofty tree will be brought down.
He will cut down the forest trees with an ax. Lebanon will fall to the Mighty One.
They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.
Therefore, this is what the LORD of Heaven's Armies, the God of Israel, says: "Now I will punish the king of Babylon and his land, just as I punished the king of Assyria.
Give them this message from the Sovereign LORD: "A great eagle with broad wings and long feathers, covered with many-colored plumage, came to Lebanon. He seized the top of a cedar tree
and plucked off its highest branch. He carried it away to a city filled with merchants. He planted it in a city of traders.
