Ezekiel Chapter 2

Ezekiel 2:1
2:1 And {a} he said to me, {b} Son of man, stand upon thy feet,
    and I will speak to thee.

    (a) That is, the Lord.
    (b) Meaning, man who is but earth and ashes, which was to
        humble him, and cause him to consider his own state, and
        God's grace.

Ezekiel 2:2
2:2 {c} And the spirit entered into me when he spoke to me, and
    set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spoke to me.

    (c) So that he could not abide God's presence, till God's
        Spirit entered into him.

Ezekiel 2:5
2:5 And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will
    forbear, (for they [are] a rebellious house,) yet shall know
    that {d} there hath been a prophet among them.

    (d) This declares on the one part God's great affection
        toward his people, that despite their rebellion, yet he
        will send his prophets among them, and admonishes his
        ministers on the other part that they cease not to do
        their duty, though the people are never so obstinate:
        for the word of God will be either to their salvation or
        greater condemnation.

Ezekiel 2:6
2:6 And thou, son of man, {e} be not afraid of them, neither be
    afraid of their words, though briers and thorns [are] with
    thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of
    their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they
    [are] a rebellious house.

    (e) Read Jeremiah 1:17. He shows that for no afflictions
        they would cease to do their duties.

Ezekiel 2:8
2:8 But thou, son of man, hear what I say to thee; Be not thou
    rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and
    {f} eat that which I give thee.

    (f) He not only exhorts him to his duty but also gives him
        the means with which he may be able to execute it.

Ezekiel 2:10
2:10 And he spread it before me; and it [was] written within and
     without: and [there was] written in it {g} lamentations,
     and mourning, and woe.

     (g) He shows what were the contents of this book: that is,
         God's judgments against the wicked.
