Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 2:8

_ _ eat — (See on Jeremiah 15:16; Revelation 10:9, Revelation 10:10). The idea is to possess himself fully of the message and digest it in the mind; not literal eating, but such an appropriation of its unsavory contents that they should become, as it were, part of himself, so as to impart them the more vividly to his hearers.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 2:6-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 2:8

Hear — Obey. Open — This was done only in a vision.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 2:8

But thou, son of man, hear what I say to thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and (f) eat that which I give thee.

(f) He not only exhorts him to his duty but also gives him the means with which he may be able to execute it.
