Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 13:2

_ _ that prophesy — namely, a speedy return to Jerusalem.

_ _ out of ... own hearts — alluding to the words of Jeremiah (Jeremiah 23:16, Jeremiah 23:26); that is, what they prophesied was what they and the people wished; the wish was father to the thought. The people wished to be deceived, and so were deceived. They were inexcusable, for they had among them true prophets (who spoke not their own thoughts, but as they were moved by the Holy Ghost, 2 Peter 1:21), whom they might have known to be such, but they did not wish to know (John 3:19).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 13:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 13:2

That prophesy — Out of their own deceiving hearts, not from God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou to them that prophesy out of their (a) own hearts, Hear ye the word of the LORD;

(a) After their own fantasy and not as having the revelation of the Lord, (Jeremiah 23:16).
