Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 4:4

_ _ Another symbolical act performed at the same time as the former, in vision, not in external action, wherein it would have been only puerile: narrated as a thing ideally done, it would make a vivid impression. The second action is supplementary to the first, to bring out more fully the same prophetic idea.

_ _ left side — referring to the position of the ten tribes, the northern kingdom, as Judah, the southern, answers to “the right side” (Ezekiel 4:6). The Orientals facing the east in their mode, had the north on their left, and the south on their right (Ezekiel 16:46). Also the right was more honorable than the left: so Judah as being the seat of the temple, was more so than Israel.

_ _ bear the iniquity — iniquity being regarded as a burden; so it means, “bear the punishment of their iniquity” (Numbers 14:34). A type of Him who was the great sin-bearer, not in mimic show as Ezekiel, but in reality (Isaiah 53:4, Isaiah 53:6, Isaiah 53:12).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 4:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 4:4

Lay — Take upon thee the representation of their guilt and punishment. House of Israel — The ten tribes. The number — By this thou shalt intimate how long I have borne with their sins, and how long they shall bear their punishment.
