This chapter is of the same argument with the former; and contains a
type of Jerusalem's destruction; an explanation of that type; what were
the reasons of God's judgments on that city; and the nature, rise, and
end of them. The type is in \\#Eze 5:1-4\\; the explanation of that type is
in \\#Eze 5:5\\; the reasons of the severe judgments threatened are
changing the statutes of the Lord, and not walking in them, and
defiling the sanctuary with their abominations, \\#Eze 5:6-11\\; an account
of the judgments of God, answerable to each of the parts in the type,
\\#Eze 5:12\\; the ends of these judgments are, with respect to God, the
accomplishment of his anger, and the satisfaction of his justice; with
respect to the Jews, bringing them to an acknowledgment that he had
spoken in his zeal; and, with respect to the nations, their instruction
and astonishment, \\#Eze 5:13-15\\; and the chapter is concluded with an
assurance that these judgments would be sent, \\#Eze 5:16,17\\.
