Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 5:17

_ _ beasts — perhaps meaning destructive conquerors (Daniel 7:4). Rather, literal “beasts,” which infest desolated regions such as Judea was to become (compare Ezekiel 34:28; Exodus 23:29; Deuteronomy 32:24; 2 Kings 17:25). The same threat is repeated in manifold forms to awaken the careless.

_ _ sword — civil war.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 5:5-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 5:17

Bereave thee — Of your children, friends, and your own life. Pestilence and blood — Thy land shall be the common road for pestilence and blood. Tho' this prophecy was to be accomplished presently, in the destruction of Jerusalem by the Chaldeans; yet it may well be supposed to look forward, to the final destruction of it by the Romans, when God made a full end of the Jewish nation, and caused his fury to rest upon them.
