Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 35:6

_ _ I will prepare thee unto blood — I will expose thee to slaughter.

_ _ sithold English for “seeing that” or “since.”

_ _ thou hast not hated blood — The Hebrew order is, “thou hast hated not — blood”; that is, thou couldst not bear to live without bloodshed [Grotius]. There is a play on similar sounds in the Hebrew; Edom resembling dam, the Hebrew for “blood”; as “Edom” means “red,” the transition to “blood” is easy. Edom, akin to blood in name, so also in nature and acts; “blood therefore shall pursue thee.” The measure which Edom meted to others should be meted to himself (Psalms 109:17; Matthew 7:2; Matthew 26:52).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 35:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 35:6

And blood — Thy guilt, and my just revenge of innocent blood. Hast not hated — Thou hast loved, rather than hated, blood — shed; therefore vengeance for it follows thee.

Ezekiel 35:6

Therefore, [as] I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee to blood, and blood shall pursue thee: since thou hast not (c) hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.
