Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 24:12

_ _ herself — rather, “she hath wearied Me out with lies”; or rather, “with vain labors” on My part to purify her without being obliged to have recourse to judgments (compare Isaiah 43:24; Malachi 2:17) [Maurer]. However, English Version gives a good sense (compare Isaiah 47:13; Isaiah 57:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 24:1-14.
