Ezekiel 35:13 Meaning and Commentary

Ezekiel 35:13

Thus with your mouth ye have boasted against me
Or, "magnified against me" F1; spoke great swelling words of vanity, or had a mouth opened to speak great things and blasphemy against God, as antichrist is said to do, ( Revelation 13:5 Revelation 13:6 ) , what is spoken against the Lord's people is taken by him as spoken against himself: and have multiplied your words against me;
not in prayer, by deprecations or supplications, as the word F2 used sometimes signifies; but in reproaches and calumnies, vilifying expressions and hard speeches, against his people, in great numbers; which is all one as if they were directed against him: I have heard them;
these the Lord takes notice of, and will call to an account for, either here or hereafter; see ( Jude 1:15 ) .


F1 (yle wlydgt) "magnificastis contra me", Junius & Tremellius, Piscator, Polanus, Cocceius, Starckius.
F2 (Mtrtex) ab (rte) "orare suppliciter".

Ezekiel 35:13 In-Context

11 therefore as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I will treat you in accordance with the anger and jealousy you showed in your hatred of them and I will make myself known among them when I judge you.
12 Then you will know that I the LORD have heard all the contemptible things you have said against the mountains of Israel. You said, “They have been laid waste and have been given over to us to devour.”
13 You boasted against me and spoke against me without restraint, and I heard it.
14 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: While the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate.
15 Because you rejoiced when the inheritance of Israel became desolate, that is how I will treat you. You will be desolate, Mount Seir, you and all of Edom. Then they will know that I am the LORD.’ ”
