Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 37:9

_ _ wind — rather, the spirit of life or life-breath (Margin). For it is distinct from “the four winds” from which it is summoned.

_ _ from the four winds — implying that Israel is to be gathered from the four quarters of the earth (Isaiah 43:5, Isaiah 43:6; Jeremiah 31:8), even as they were “scattered into all the winds” (Ezekiel 5:10; Ezekiel 12:14; Ezekiel 17:21; compare Revelation 7:1, Revelation 7:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 37:1-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 37:9

Prophesy — Declare what my will is. O breath — The soul, whose emblem here is wind; which, as it gently blew upon these lifeless creatures, each was inspired with its own soul or spirit.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 37:9

Then said he to me, Prophesy to the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four (b) winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

(b) Signifying all places where the Israelites were scattered that is, the faithful will be brought to the same unity of spirit and doctrine wherever they are scattered through the world.
