Bible Commentary for Ezekiel 3:5

Wesley's Notes for Ezekiel 3:5


3:3 Belly - The mouth is the proper instrument of eating, but when meat is digested, the belly is said to eat. Fill thy bowels - This denotes the fulness of the measure wherewith we should read, meditate, and digest the word of God. Honey - It was sweet to receive things by revelation from God, and so to converse with God. And usually the first part of the ministerial work is pleasant.

3:4 Speak - What things I shall shew thee, and in what words I shall declare them to thee.

3:6 Many people - Divers nations, that thou shouldest need divers tongues, to speak to them all in their own language.

3:7 All - The far greater part, tho' not every particular person.
