Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 14:4

_ _ and comethand yet cometh, reigning himself to be a true worshipper of Jehovah.

_ _ him that cometh — so the Hebrew Margin reads. But the Hebrew text reading is, “according to it, according to the multitude of his idols”; the anticipative clause with the pronoun not being pleonastic, but increasing the emphasis of the following clause with the noun. “I will answer,” literally, reflexively, “I will Myself (or for Myself) answer him.”

_ _ according to ... idols — thus, “answering a fool according to his folly”; making the sinner’s sin his punishment; retributive justice (Proverbs 1:31; Proverbs 26:5).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 14:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 14:4

According — According to his desert, I will give answer, but in just judgment.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 14:4

Therefore speak to them, and say to them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the (c) prophet; I the LORD will answer him that cometh according to the multitude (d) of his idols;

(c) To inquire of things which the Lord has appointed to come to pass.

(d) As his abomination has deserved: that is, he will be led with lies according as he delighted in it, (2 Thessalonians 2:10).
