Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 14:6

_ _ Though God so threatened the people for their idolatry (Ezekiel 14:5), yet He would rather they should avert the calamity by “repentance.”

_ _ turn yourselves — Calvin translates, “turn others” (namely, the stranger proselytes in the land). As ye have been the advisers of others (see Ezekiel 14:7, “the stranger that sojourneth in Israel”) to idolatry, so bestow at least as much pains in turning them to the truth; the surest proof of repentance. But the parallelism to Ezekiel 14:3, Ezekiel 14:4 favors English Version. Their sin was twofold: (1) “In their heart” or inner man; (2) “Put before their face,” that is, exhibited outwardly. So their repentance is generally expressed by “repent,” and is then divided into: (1) “Turn yourselves (inwardly) from your idols”; (2) “Turn away your faces (outwardly) from all your abominations.” It is not likely that an exhortation to convert others should come between the two affecting themselves.
