Ezekiel 18:16

Ezekiel 18:16

Neither hath oppressed any (See Gill on Ezekiel 18:7). hath not withholden the pledge;
or, hath not pledged the pledge F8. The meaning is, not that he had not given one, but had not taken one. So the Targum,

``the pledge he hath not taken;''
or, if he did, he did not keep it beyond the time the law directs, but restored it to him whose it was; neither hath spoiled by violence, [but] hath given his bread to the
hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment.
The rest of the verse is the same with ( Ezekiel 18:7 ) .
