Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 20:37

_ _ pass under the rod — metaphor from a shepherd who makes his sheep pass under his rod in counting them (Leviticus 27:32; Jeremiah 33:13). Whether you will or not, ye shall be counted as Mine, and so shall be subjected to My chastening discipline (Micah 7:14), with a view to My ultimate saving of the chosen remnant (compare John 10:27-29).

_ _ bond of ... covenant — I will constrain you by sore chastisements to submit yourselves to the covenant to which ye are lastingly bound, though now you have cast away God’s bond from you. Fulfilled in part, Nehemiah 9:8, Nehemiah 9:26, Nehemiah 9:32-38; Nehemiah 10:1-39; fully hereafter (Isaiah 54:10-13; Isaiah 52:1, Isaiah 52:2).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 20:33-44.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 20:37

I will cause — I will bring you out by number, so that you shall either own my scepter, or by a conquered subjection, yield to my sword and power. Under the rod — Referring to the manner of shepherds in that country, who did tell their sheep in, and out of the fold. Bring you — The voluntary and obedient into covenant with myself.
