Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 21:26

_ _ diadem — rather, “the miter” of the holy priest (Exodus 28:4; Zechariah 3:5). His priestly emblem as representative of the priestly people. Both this and “the crown,” the emblem of the kingdom, were to be removed, until they should be restored and united in the Mediator, Messiah (Psalms 110:2, Psalms 110:4; Zechariah 6:13), [Fairbairn]. As, however, King Zedekiah alone, not the high priest also, is referred to in the context, English Version is supported by Gesenius.

_ _ this shall not be the same — The diadem shall not be as it was [Rosenmuller]. Nothing shall remain what it was [Fairbairn].

_ _ exalt ... low, ... abase ... high — not the general truth expressed (Proverbs 3:34; Luke 1:52; James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:5); but specially referring to Messiah and Zedekiah contrasted together. The “tender plant ... out of the dry ground” (Isaiah 53:2) is to be “exalted” in the end (Ezekiel 21:27); the now “high” representative on David’s throne, Zedekiah, is to be “abased.” The outward relations of things shall be made to change places in just retaliation on the people for having so perverted the moral relations of things [Hengstenberg].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 21:18-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 21:26

The diadem — The royal attire of the head, which the king daily wore. Shall not be the same — The kingdom shall never be what it hath been. Him that is low — Jeconiah. The advance of this captive king, came to pass in the thirty — seventh year of his captivity.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 21:26

Thus saith the Lord GOD; Remove the (x) diadem, and take off the crown: this [shall] not [be] the same: exalt [him that is] low, and abase [him that is] high.

(x) Some refer this to the priest's attire: for Jehozadak the priest went into captivity with the king.
