Chapter 9

Chapter Overview

Instruments prepared to destroy the city, verse 1-2.
The glory removes to the threshold of the temple, verse 3.
Orders given to mark a remnant, verse 3, 4.
The execution of them who were not marked begun, verse 5-7.
The prophet intercedes, but in vain, verse 8-10.
The report of him that had marked the remnant, verse 11.

Verse 1
He - The man whom he had seen upon the throne. Them - Those whom God hath appointed to destroy the city: perhaps angels. Every man - Every one; 'tis an Hebrew idiom. Each of these had a weapon proper for that kind of destruction which he was to effect; and so, some to slay with the sword, another with the pestilence, another with famine. In his hand - Denoting both expedition in, and strength for the work.

Verse 2
And - As soon as the command was given, the ministers of God's displeasure appear. Men - In appearance and vision they were men, and the prophet calls them as he saw them. The north - Insinuating whence their destruction should come. One man - Not a companion, but as one of authority over them. With linen - A garment proper to the priesthood. They - All the seven.

Verse 3
The glory - The glorious brightness, such as sometimes appeared above the cherubim in the most holy place. Gone up - Departing from the place he had so long dwelt in. He was - Wont to sit and appear. Threshold - Of the temple, in token of his sudden departure from the Jews, because of their sins.

Verse 4
That sigh - Out of grief for other mens sins and sorrows. Cry - Who dare openly bewail the abominations of this wicked city, and so bear their testimony against it.

Verse 5
The others - The six slaughter-men.

Verse 6
At my sanctuary - There are the great sinners, and the abominable sins which have brought this on them.

Verse 7
And slew - The slaughter also was in vision.

Verse 8
Was left - Left alone, now both the sealer, and the slayers were gone.
