Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 9:8

_ _ I was left — literally, “there was left I.” So universal seemed the slaughter that Ezekiel thought himself the only one left [Calvin]. He was the only one left of the priests “in the sanctuary.”

_ _ fell upon my face — to intercede for his countrymen (so Numbers 16:22).

_ _ all the residue — a plea drawn from God’s covenant promise to save the elect remnant.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 9:5-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 9:8

Was left — Left alone, now both the sealer, and the slayers were gone.

(i) This declares that the servants of God have a compassion when they see his judgments executed.
