Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 2:3

_ _ nation — rather, “nations”; the word usually applied to the heathen or Gentiles; here to the Jews, as being altogether heathenized with idolatries. So in Isaiah 1:10, they are named “Sodom” and “Gomorrah.” They were now become “Lo-ammi,” not the people of God (Hosea 1:9).
