Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 20:5-6.


Ezekiel 20:6

_ _ espied for them — as though God had spied out all other lands, and chose Canaan as the best of all lands (Deuteronomy 8:7, Deuteronomy 8:8). See Daniel 8:9; Daniel 11:16, Daniel 11:41, “the glorious land”; see Margin, “land of delight,” or, ornament”; “the pleasant land,” or “land of desire,” Zechariah 7:14, Margin.

_ _ glory of all lands — that is, Canaan was “the beauty of all lands”; the most lovely and delightful land; “milk and honey” are not the antecedents to “which.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 20:5-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 20:6

I had espied — God speaks after the manner of men. Milk and honey — Literally milk and honey in abundance were in the land of Canaan. Proverbially it speaks the plenty and abundance of all the blessings of life.
