Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 37:11

_ _ Our bones are dried — (Psalms 141:7), explained by “our hope is lost” (Isaiah 49:14); our national state is as hopeless of resuscitation, as marrowless bones are of reanimation.

_ _ cut off for our parts — that is, so far as we are concerned. There is nothing in us to give hope, like a withered branch “cut off” from a tree, or a limb from the body.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 37:1-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 37:11

The whole house — The emblem of the house of Israel. Are dried — Our state is as hopeless, as far from recovery, as dried bones are from life.
