Ezekiel 12:5

_ _ Dig — as Zedekiah was to escape like one digging through a wall, furtively to effect an escape (Ezekiel 12:12).

_ _ carry out — namely, “thy stuff” (Ezekiel 12:4).

_ _ thereby — by the opening in the wall. Zedekiah escaped “by the gate betwixt the two walls” (Jeremiah 39:4).

Ezekiel 12:5

Dig — Come not through the door, but as one who knows there is a guard upon the door, get to some back part of thy house, and dig there thyself, either to make the greater haste, or to keep all secret; for all will be little enough for them that must act what thou dost represent. Carry out — Through the hole thou hast dug.
