Ezekiel 34:28 Meaning and Commentary

Ezekiel 34:28

And they shall no more be a prey to the Heathen
To the Papists, who shall now be perished out of the land, ( Psalms 10:16 ) : neither shall, the beasts of the land devour them;
neither that beast which rose up out of the sea, nor that which came up out of the earth, ( Revelation 13:1 Revelation 13:11 ) , the pope, both in his secular and ecclesiastic power, being destroyed. So the Targum,

``and the kingdoms of the earth shall not consume them;''
the antichristian kingdoms: but they, shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid;
(See Gill on Ezekiel 34:25); (See Gill on Ezekiel 34:27).
