Ezekiel 17:1-3

When reading Ezekiel, I was mesmerized by this verse about a colorful, enormous eagle that grasped a cedar tree top.  I wondered what it meant.

The Reformation Study Bible by R. C. Sproul says, “Ezekiel propounds an allegory.  The great eagle is the imperial might of Babylon, represented by Nebuchadnezzar.”
