Ezekiel 39:24

Ezekiel 39:24

According to their uncleanness
Not ceremonial, but moral; they were an impure and adulterous generation, as our Lord calls them, ( Matthew 12:39 ) ( 16:4 ) : and according to their transgressions have I done unto them;
or "rebellions", as the Targum renders it; or defections, as the word F11 signifies; their rebellions against the King Messiah; their defections from him; their contempt of him, and rejection of his yoke, and non-submission to his ordinances; according to the desert of such crimes, the Lord dealt with them;

``took vengeance on them,''
as the Targum is; in the destruction of their nation, city, and temple: "and hid my face from them"; or caused his Shechaniah to remove from them, as the same paraphrase; (See Gill on Ezekiel 39:23).
