Ezekiel 22:6

_ _ Rather, “The princes ... each according to his power, were in thee, to shed blood” (as if this was the only object of their existence). “Power,” literally, “arm”; they, who ought to have been patterns of justice, made their own arm of might their only law.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 22:1-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 22:6

Every one — Not one to be found of a more merciful temper. To their power — According to their ability.
