Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 34:26

_ _ them and the places round about my hill — The Jews, and Zion, God’s hill (Psalms 2:6), are to be sources of blessing, not merely to themselves, but to the surrounding heathen (Isaiah 19:24; Isaiah 56:6, Isaiah 56:7; Isaiah 60:3; Micah 5:7; Zechariah 8:13). The literal fulfillment is, however, the primary one, though the spiritual also is designed. In correspondence with the settled reign of righteousness internally, all is to be prosperity externally, fertilizing showers (according to the promise of the ancient covenant, Leviticus 26:4; Psalms 68:9; Malachi 3:10), and productive trees and lands (Ezekiel 34:27). Thus shall they realize the image of Ezekiel 34:14; namely, a flock richly pastured by God Himself.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 34:17-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 34:26

Them — My returned captives, The places — All the country. My hill — Jerusalem.
