Ezekiel 11:4

Ezekiel 11:4

Therefore prophesy against them
Evil things against them, things that are disagreeable to them; since they flatter themselves with good things, and cry peace and safety, let them know that destruction is coming upon them: or, "concerning them" F6; what will befall them, and that it will be otherwise with them than they imagine: prophesy, O son of man;
this is repeated, not only to stir up the prophet to the performance of his work and office, not fearing the faces, and revilings, and mockings of men; but to show the indignation of the Lord at their scoffs and jeers, and the certain accomplishment of what should be predicted.
