Ezekiel 11:12

Ezekiel 11:12

And ye shall know that I [am] the Lord
(See Gill on Ezekiel 11:10); for ye have not walked in my statutes, neither executed my judgments;
which is the reason why the Lord would judge them on the border of Israel, and deliver them up into the hands of strangers; nor can he be thought to act the severe and cruel part to them, when this their disobedience is observed; since they had his statutes and his judgments made known to them, which were not known to other nations, and yet they regarded them not; wherefore it was but righteous in him to inflict his judgments upon them; and which is the more aggravated by what follows, and which still more clearly shows the justice of the divine proceedings against them: but have done after the manners of the Heathens that [are] round about
you;
or, "the judgments of the Heathens" F8; regarded them, and acted according to them, when they slighted and disobeyed the judgments of the Lord; instead of worshipping of him according to his revealed will, they served the idols of the nations round about them, and gave into all their superstitious rites and ceremonies.
