Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezra 10:10-17

_ _ Ezra the priest stood up, and said — Having fully represented the enormity of their sin and urged them to dissolve their unlawful connections, he was gratified by receiving a prompt acknowledgment of the justice of his reproof and a promise of compliance with his recommendation. But as the weather was ungenial and the defaulters were too numerous to be passed in review at one time, it was resolved that a commission should be appointed to examine into the whole matter. These commissioners, assisted by the judges and elders of the respective cities, made a minute investigation into every case, and after three months’ labor completely removed all traces of the abuse. Doubtless, an adequate provision was made for the repudiated wives and children, according to the means and circumstances of the husbands.

As thou hast said:
They all resolved to do what Ezra had commanded; and they did put away their wives, even those by whom they had children (
Ezra 10:44 All these had taken strange wives: and [some] of them had wives by whom they had children.
), each of whom doubtless received a portion according to the circumstances of her husband, and was not turned away desolate. Humanity must have dictated this, and no law of God is contrary to humanity.

so must we do:

Ezra 10:3-4 Now therefore let us make a covenant with our God to put away all the wives, and such as are born of them, according to the counsel of my lord, and of those that tremble at the commandment of our God; and let it be done according to the law. ... Arise; for [this] matter [belongeth] unto thee: we also [will be] with thee: be of good courage, and do [it].
Nehemiah 13:23 In those days also saw I Jews [that] had married wives of Ashdod, of Ammon, [and] of Moab:
Psalms 78:37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant.
Psalms 78:57 But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.
