Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 12:6

_ _ in ... twilight — rather, “in the dark.” So in Genesis 15:17, “it” refers to “thy stuff.”

_ _ cover thy face — as one who muffles his face, afraid of being recognized by anyone meeting him. So the Jews and Zedekiah should make their exit stealthily and afraid to look around, so hurried should be their fight [Calvin].

_ _ sign — rather, “a portent,” namely, for evil.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 12:1-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 12:6

Bare it — In testimony of the servitude they shall be reduced to, who then must do what servants or beasts were wont to be employed in. Cover thy face — As unwilling to be seen or known. For — I have set thee for a sign to them, and thou shalt tell them the meaning of these things in due time.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 12:6

In their sight shalt thou bear [it] upon [thy] shoulders, [and] carry [it] forth in the twilight: thou shalt cover thy face, that thou mayest not see the ground: for I have set thee [for] a (b) sign to the house of Israel.

(b) That as you do, so shall they do, and therefore in you they will see their own plague and punishment.
