Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 11:15

_ _ thy brethren ... brethren — The repetition implies, “Thy real brethren” are no longer the priests at Jerusalem with whom thou art connected by the natural ties of blood and common temple service, but thy fellow exiles on the Chebar, and the house of Israel whosoever of them belong to the remnant to be spared.

_ _ men of thy kindred — literally, “of thy redemption,” that is, the nearest relatives, whose duty it was to do the part of Goel, or vindicator and redeemer of a forfeited inheritance (Leviticus 25:25). Ezekiel, seeing the priesthood doomed to destruction, as a priest, felt anxious to vindicate their cause, as if they were his nearest kinsmen and he their Goel. But he is told to look for his true kinsmen in those, his fellow exiles, whom his natural kinsmen at Jerusalem despised, and he is to be their vindicator. Spiritual ties, as in the case of Levi (Deuteronomy 33:9), the type of Messiah (Matthew 12:47-50) are to supersede natural ones where the two clash. The hope of better days was to rise from the despised exiles. The gospel principle is shadowed forth here, that the despised of men are often the chosen of God and the highly esteemed among men are often an abomination before Him (Luke 16:15; 1 Corinthians 1:26-28). “No door of hope but in the valley of Achor” (“trouble,” Hosea 2:15), [Fairbairn].

_ _ Get you far ... unto us is this land — the contemptuous words of those left still in the city at the carrying away of Jeconiah to the exiles, “However far ye be outcasts from the Lord and His temple, we are secure in our possession of the land.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 11:14-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 11:15

Thy brethren — Thy nearest kindred, which it seems were left in Jerusalem. Their degeneracy is more noted in the repetition of the word brethren. Gone far — Ye are gone far from the Lord; as much as the Heathens accused the Christians of atheism.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 11:15

Son of man, thy (g) brethren, [even] thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all the house of Israel wholly, [are] they to whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Retire far from the LORD: to us is this land given in possession.

(g) They that remained at Jerusalem thus reproached them that were gone into captivity as though they were cast off and forsaken by God.
