Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 2:4

_ _ impudent — literally, “hard-faced” (Ezekiel 3:7, Ezekiel 3:9).

_ _ children — resumptive of “they” (Ezekiel 2:3); the “children” walk in their “fathers’” steps.

_ _ I ... send thee — God opposes His command to all obstacles. Duties are ours; events are God’s.

_ _ Thus saith the Lord God — God opposes His name to the obstinacy of the people.
