4我―耶和华必用 钩子 钩住 你的腮颊 ,又使江河 中的鱼 贴住 你的鳞甲 ;我必将你和所有贴住 你鳞甲 的鱼 ,从江河 中 拉上来 ,
4But I will put hooks in thy jaws, and I will cause the fish of thy rivers to stick unto thy scales, and I will bring thee up out of the midst of thy rivers, and all the fish of thy rivers shall stick unto thy scales.
4 Verse 4. I will put hooks in thy jaws] Amasis, one of this

king's generals, being proclaimed king by an insurrection of the

people, dethroned Apries, and seized upon the kingdom; and Apries

was obliged to flee to Upper Egypt for safety.



I will cause the fish-to stick unto thy scales] Most fish are

sorely troubled with a species of insect which bury their heads in

their flesh, under their scales, and suck out the vital juices.

The allusion seems to be to this. Pharaoh was the crocodile; the

fish, the common people; and the sticking to his scales, the

insurrection by which he was wasted and despoiled of his

kingdom.
