F.B. Meyer's 'Through the Bible' Commentary

Ezekiel 2

Verses 1-10

a Hard Commission

Ezekiel 2:1-10 ; Ezekiel 3:1-11

The people were impudent and stiff-hearted; their words as briars and thorns; their speech like the poison of scorpions; but the prophet was commissioned to go on with his divine mission, undeterred by their opposition. Under such circumstances we must be sure of a Thus saith the Lord . But no man can stand against the continual opposition of his fellows, unless his strength is renewed, as Ezekiel’s was, by eating that which God gives. Open thy mouth, and eat that which I give thee , Ezekiel 2:8 . Let us specially consider the divine denunciations of sin, that our words may be sharper than any two-edged sword. Nothing makes us so strong as feeding perpetually upon the roll of the Book, and especially on the Word within the words. We must eat the flesh and drink in the life of the Son of man, if we can deal aright with the needs of the sons of men.
