EUK & WAGALLS COMPAY ew York and Toronto. THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET EZEKIEL. EXPOSITIO. CHAPTER XXIL Vers. 1, 2. — moreover, etc. The word oonneots what follows with the word of the Lord which began in ch. xx. 2. That con- nection is, indeed, sufBciently indicated by the recnrrenoe of the formula, "Wilt thou  judge?" (see note on ch. zx. 4). In obedi- ence to the commands which that question implied, Ezekiel has once more to go through Uie catalogue of the sins of Jndah and Jerusalem. It is not without significance that he applies the very epithet of bloody city (Hebrew, dty of bloods) which Kahum (iii. 1) had applied to ineveh. Yer. 8. — The oity sheddeth blood, etc. As in the great indictment of Isaiah (i. 15, 21 ; ir. 4), the sins of murder and idolatry are grouped together. She sins as if with the
 
purpose "that her time" (f.e. the time of her punishment) " may come." Yer. 4. — Thou hast caused thy days to draw near, etc As in ver. it, the days- and the years are those of God's judgments. The people had made no effort to avert their doom by repentance. They had, as it were, rushed upon their appointed fate. So, though in another sense, the righteous lives of the faithful are said, in 2 Pet. iii. 12, to "hasten the coming of the day of God." Exceptional evil and exceptional good alike hasten the approach of the day which is to decide between the two. Yer. 5. — Those that be near, etc. The Hebrew words are both feminine, and refer to the neighbouring and distant cities which took up their proverbs of reproach against the city, once holy and faithful, now infamons (Hebrew, defiled in name) and much vexed. The last words point to another form of punishment. Jerusalem is described as in a state of moral tumult and X2SKIEL — n. disorder aa the oonseqnence of its gnilt (oomp. Amos iii 9; Dent. viL 23; Zeob. xIt. 13, where the same word is rendered by " tumults " and " destruction "). Yer. 6. — ^Behold, the princes of Jndah, ete. For the "bloodshed," which was con^ spicuous among the sins, comp. ch. ix, 9; xvi. 38; xxiii. 37, 45; and for special in- stances of that sin among its princes, those of Manasseh (2 Kings xxi. 16) and Jehoiakim (2 KiDg8xxiv.4). To their power ; Hebrew, eaeh man according to hU arm, i.e. his strength. There was no restraint upon the doer of evil other than the limitation of his capacity. Yer. 7. — We pass to sins of another kiijd.
