CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
13:45 His clothes shall be rent - In the upper and fore parts, which were most visible.

And his head bare - Another sign of mourning. God would have men though not overwhelmed with, yet deeply sensible of his judgments. A covering on his upper lip - Partly as another badge of his sorrow and shame, and partly for the preservation of others from his breath or touch.

Then you will do as Ezekiel has done. You will not mourn in public or console yourselves by eating the food brought by friends.
