Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 3:12

_ _ (Acts 8:39). Ezekiel’s abode heretofore had not been the most suitable for his work. He, therefore, is guided by the Spirit to Tel-Abib, the chief town of the Jewish colony of captives: there he sat on the ground, “the throne of the miserable” (Ezra 9:3; Lamentations 1:1-3), seven days, the usual period for manifesting deep grief (Job 2:13; see Psalms 137:1), thus winning their confidence by sympathy in their sorrow. He is accompanied by the cherubim which had been manifested at Chebar (Ezekiel 1:3, Ezekiel 1:4), after their departure from Jerusalem. They now are heard moving with the “voice of a great rushing (compare Acts 2:2), saying, Blessed be the glory of the Lord from His place,” that is, moving from the place in which it had been at Chebar, to accompany Ezekiel to his new destination (Ezekiel 9:3); or, “from His place” may rather mean, in His place and manifested “from” it. Though God may seem to have forsaken His temple, He is still in it and will restore His people to it. His glory is “blessed,” in opposition to those Jews who spoke evil of Him, as if He had been unjustly rigorous towards their nation [Calvin].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 3:1-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
