Pharao gets compared to Assyria (Eze 31:2). Assyria a cedar in the Lebanon, with great beauty and planted at waters (people Re 17:15?) became powerful and therefore affected all the nations and animals.
Interestingly this “cedar in Lebanon” (which means white mountain) is in “Eden, the garden of the true God” (Eze 31:9).
Is it a symbolic meaning of the garden of Eden? Is it just near at the location where the garden of Eden was?Also the king of Tyre was in “Eden, the garden of God” and then talking about all sorts of precious stones.
Interestingly Adam and Eve were put in the “garden in Eden” and not the “garden Eden”, but here in Eze 31 it is said “Eden, the garden of the true God”.
It seems Eden has a symbolic meaning as of garden which is controlled by God, the same as God controls who has authority.
Jehovah caused the Assyrian kingdom to fall as he says “I will hand it over to the mighty rulers of the nations”, and these “ruthless” people would cut the tree down.
The would keep lying and lower creatures, animals would live on it. Why? Jehovah explains so that no other kingdom may dare to become haughty as theses proud kings go to death, or to the “land below”, their kings the same as all “mankind” (Eze 31:13,14).
At the end of this chapter Jehovah emphasizes that all of this “will happen to Pharaoh and all his hordes” (Eze 31:18)
