Parallel Commentaries
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

24:15-27 Though mourning for the dead is a duty, yet it must be kept under by religion and right reason: we must not sorrow as men that have no hope. Believers must not copy the language and expressions of those who know not God. The people asked the meaning of the sign. God takes from them all that was dearest to them. And as Ezekiel wept not for his affliction, so neither should they weep for theirs. Blessed be God, we need not pine away under our afflictions; for should all comforts fail, and all sorrows be united, yet the broken heart and the mourner's prayer are always acceptable before God.

Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible

Thus Ezekiel is unto you a sign,.... These are the words of the prophet concerning himself; observing that in all the above things he was a sign to the Jews of what should befall them, and what should be their case:

and according to all that he hath done shall ye do; however it might be then a matter of scorn and derision:

and when this cometh: when this prophecy comes to pass, and all these calamities come upon the city and temple:

ye shall know that I am the Lord God; omniscient, omnipotent, true, and faithful.

Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary

24. sign—a typical representative in his own person of what was to befall them (Isa 20:3).

when this cometh—alluding probably to their taunt, as if God's word spoken by His prophets would never come to pass. "Where is the word of the Lord? Let it come now" (Jer 17:15). When the prophecy is fulfilled, "ye shall know (to your cost) that I am the Lord," who thereby show My power and fulfil My word spoken by My prophet (Joh 13:19; 14:29).
