Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 36:3

_ _ Literally, “Because, even because.”

_ _ swallowed you up — literally, “panted after” you, as a beast after its prey; implying the greedy cupidity of Edom as to Israel’s inheritance (Psalms 56:1, Psalms 56:2).

_ _ lips of talkers — literally, “lips of the tongue,” that is, of the slanderer, the man of tongue. Edom slandered Israel because of the connection of the latter with Jehovah, as though He were unable to save them. Deuteronomy 28:37, and Jeremiah 24:9 had foretold Israel’s reproach among the heathen (Daniel 9:16).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 36:1-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 36:3

Swallowed — Devoured you, as hungry beasts devour their prey. Ye are taken up — You are the subject of all their discourse. An infamy — Ever branding you as infamous.
