Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 33:32

_ _ very lovely song — literally, a “song of loves”: a lover’s song. They praise thy eloquence, but care not for the subject of it as a real and personal thing; just as many do in the modern church [Jerome].

_ _ play well on an instrument — Hebrew singers accompanied the “voice” with the harp.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
