Ezekiel 22



Verse 2

Blood. Why dost thou cease to admonish and rebuke the people? (Worthington) --- Pronounce sentence on Jerusalem, (Haydock) for her cruelties. (Calmet)

Verse 6

Hath. Septuagint, "was mixed with his relations," ver. 10., &c., (Haydock) fighting against them. (Theodoret)

Verse 8

Sabbaths, by servile works, and by their sinful deportment.

Verse 9

Slanderers, hateful to all, Leviticus xix. 16., and Proverbs xi. 13. --- Mountains. Chap. xviii. 6.

Father, his widow, their mother-in-law, or one of his wives.

In thee. I will purify thee by violent medicines. (Calmet)

Verse 16

Possess, "as an inheritance:" (Septuagint; Haydock) "I will defile:" (Aquila) "wound thee." (Symmachus) Hebrew is very different: (Calmet) "thou hast inherited in thyself," (Haydock) being no longer willing to be subject.
