Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 18:25

_ _ Their plea for saying, “The way of the Lord is not equal,” was that God treated different classes in a different way. But it was really their way that was unequal, since living in sin they expected to be dealt with as if they were righteous. God’s way was invariably to deal with different men according to their deserts.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 18:21-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 18:25

The way — His whole management of affairs. Not equal — Not right, or consistent with his own declaration, and law.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 18:25

Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not (h) equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal?

(h) In punishing the father with the children.
