Ezekiel 13:6 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Ye have not gone up into the gaps - Far from opposing sinners, who are bringing down the wrath of God upon the place, you prevent their repentance by your flattering promises and false predictions. Ye have neither by prayers, example, nor advice, contributed any thing for the preservation of the place, or the salvation of the people's souls.

For he is the Redeemer's enemy who through the good works which he does covets being loved
