Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 3:27

_ _ when I speak ... I will open thy mouth — opposed to the silence imposed on the prophet, to punish the people (Ezekiel 3:26). After the interval of silence has awakened their attention to the cause of it, namely, their sins, they may then hearken to the prophecies which they would not do before.

_ _ He that heareth, let him hear ... forbear — that is, thou hast done thy part, whether they hear or forbear. He who shall forbear to hear, it shall be at his own peril; he who hears, it shall be to his own eternal good (compare Revelation 22:11).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 3:22-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 3:27

But — When ever I shall reveal any thing to thee. Open — I will give thee power to speak. Let — 'Tis his duty and safety. Forbear — 'Tis at his own peril.
