Do not be rebellious like that rebellious house. Open your mouth and eat what I give you.”…

most rebellious [HEB] rebellion







Verse 7. - Thou shalt speak my words, etc. The words conveyed

(1) a ground of encouragement in the fact that the words would be given by Jehovah (romp. Jeremiah 1:7, 17; Matthew 10:19, 20); and

(2) a warning against the intermingling of lower thoughts and a self-originated message (Ezekiel 13:7; Ezekiel 22:28). They are most rebellious; literally, the Hebrew being a noun, they are rebellion, or stubbornness, itself. And thou shall speak my words unto them,.... Not his own words, but those the Lord should put into his mouth. The Targum is,

"and thou shall prophesy the words of my prophecy unto them:''

whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear; See Gill on Ezekiel 2:5;

for they are most rebellious; or "rebellion" (c) itself; as the carnal mind is said to be "enmity" itself against God, Romans 8:7; which aggravates their character and state.

(c) "rebellio ipsi", Montanus, Polanus, Starckius; "inobedientia sunt", Cocceius. 7. most rebellious—literally, "rebellion" itself: its very essence.2:6-10 Those who will do any thing to purpose in the service of God, must not fear men. Wicked men are as briers and thorns; but they are nigh unto cursing, and their end is to be burned. The prophet must be faithful to the souls of those to whom he was sent. All who speak from God to others, must obey his voice. The discoveries of sin, and the warnings of wrath, should be matter of lamentation. And those acquainted with the word of God, will clearly perceive it is filled with woe to impenitent sinners; and that all the precious promises of the gospel are for the repenting, believing servants of the Lord.
