Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 39:17

_ _ (Revelation 19:17).

_ _ sacrifice — Anciently worshippers feasted on the sacrifices. The birds and beasts of prey are invited to the sacrificial feast provided by God (compare Isaiah 18:6; Isaiah 34:6; Zephaniah 1:7; Mark 9:49). Here this sacrifice holds only a subordinate place in the picture, and so is put last. Not only shall their bones lie long unburied, but they shall be stripped of the flesh by beasts and birds of prey.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 39:8-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 39:17

I do sacrifice — The punishment of these God calls a sacrifice, which he offers to his own justice. Upon the mountains — Where more thousands are offered at once, than ever were at any time offered; 'tis a sacrifice so great, that none ever was, or will be like it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 39:17

And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak to every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; (k) gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, [even] a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

(k) By which he signifies the horrible destruction that would come on the enemies of his Church.
