Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 18:21-24.


Ezekiel 18:24

_ _ righteous — one apparently such; as in Matthew 9:13, “I came not to call the righteous,” etc., that is, those who fancy themselves righteous. Those alone are true saints who by the grace of God persevere (Matthew 24:13; 1 Corinthians 10:12; John 10:28, John 10:29).

_ _ turneth away from ... righteousness — an utter apostasy; not like the exceptional offenses of the godly through infirmity or heedlessness, which they afterwards mourn over and repent of.

_ _ not be mentioned — not be taken into account so as to save them.

_ _ his trespass — utter apostasy.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 18:21-29.

Ezekiel 18:24

But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, [and] doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked [man] doeth, shall he live? All his (g) righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.

(g) That is, the false opinion that the hypocrites have of their righteousness.
