Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 14:15-21

_ _ The argument is cumulative. He first puts the case of the land sinning so as to fall under the judgment of a famine (Ezekiel 14:13); then (Ezekiel 14:15) “noisome beasts” (Leviticus 26:22); then “the sword”; then, worst of all, “pestilence.” The three most righteous of men should deliver only themselves in these several four cases. In Ezekiel 14:21 he concentrates the whole in one mass of condemnation. If Noah, Daniel, Job, could not deliver the land, when deserving only one judgment, “how much more” when all four judgments combined are justly to visit the land for sin, shall these three righteous men not deliver it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
