Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 12:27

_ _ Not a mere repetition of the scoff (Ezekiel 12:22); there the scoffers asserted that the evil was so often threatened and postponed, it must have no reality; here formalists do not go so far as to deny that a day of evil is coming, but assert it is still far off (Amos 6:3). The transition is easy from this carnal security to the gross infidelity of the former class.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 12:27

Son of man, behold, [they of] the house of Israel say, The vision that he seeth [is] for (g) many days [to come], and he prophesieth of the times [that are] distant.

(g) That is, it will not come to pass in our days, and therefore we care not for it: thus the wicked ever abuse God's patience and benignity.
