Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 13:6

_ _ made others to hope, etc. — rather, “they hoped” to confirm (that is, ‘make good’) their word, by the event corresponding to their prophecy. The Hebrew requires this [Havernick]. Also the parallel clause, “they have seen vanity,” implies that they believed their own lie (2 Thessalonians 2:11). Subjective revelation is false unless it rests on the objective.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 13:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 13:6

Vanity — Things that have no foundation.
