Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 12:10

_ _ burden — that is, weighty oracle.

_ _ the prince — The very man Zedekiah, in whom they trust for safety, is to be the chief sufferer. Josephus [Antiquities, 10.7] reports that Ezekiel sent a copy of this prophecy to Zedekiah. As Jeremiah had sent a letter to the captives at the Chebar, which was the means of calling forth at first the agency of Ezekiel, so it was natural for Ezekiel to send a message to Jerusalem confirming the warnings of Jeremiah. The prince, however, fancying a contradiction between Ezekiel 12:13; “he shall not see Babylon,” and Jeremiah 24:8, Jeremiah 24:9, declaring he should be carried to Babylon, believed neither. Seeming discrepancies in Scripture on deeper search prove to be hidden harmonies.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 12:1-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 12:10

Say — Though they enquire not, yet tell them what I mean hereby, that this prophecy is a burden which the kingdom shall groan under. The prince — Zedekiah.
