Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 24:4

_ _ pieces thereof — those which properly belong to it, as its own.

_ _ every good piece ... choice bones — that is, the most distinguished of the people. The “choice bones” in the pot have flesh adhering to them. The bones under the pot (Ezekiel 24:5) are those having no flesh and used as fuel, answering to the poorest who suffer first, and are put out of pain sooner than the rich who endure what answers to the slower process of boiling.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 24:1-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 24:4

Every good piece — All the chief of the inhabitants of the land, the wealthiest, who will fly from their country — houses to live in safety in Jerusalem: the most war — like, who will betake themselves to Jerusalem for its defence. Fill it — With those pieces that are biggest, fullest of marrow, and which are divided according to the bones; these are the principal members of the state, the king, princes, priests, magistrates, and the most wealthy citizens.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 24:4

Gather its (d) pieces into it, [even] every good piece, the thigh, and the shoulder; fill [it] with the choice bones.

(d) That is the citizens and the chief men of it.
