Ezekiel 9:11 Meaning and Commentary

Ezekiel 9:11

And, behold, the man clothed with linen, which [had] the
inkhorn by his side
( Ezekiel 9:2 ) ; to whom the orders were given to mark the mourners in the city, ( Ezekiel 9:4 ) . The Syriac version is, "then I saw the man" which must direct him to observe and call to mind the distinguishing goodness of God to his own people: reported the matter, saying, I have done as thou hast commanded me;
meaning that the righteous were marked, and had been preserved, while the others were slain. Christ, as man and Mediator, sustains the character of a servant; as such he has commands enjoined him, which he has obeyed; he has done all he was to do; he has fulfilled the whole will of God, and wrought out the complete salvation of his people; a report of which he made when here on earth, ( John 17:4 ) ; and will do again at the last day; when all his people will be gathered in, and he shall deliver the kingdom to the Father, and present them all to him, having been kept by his power, saying, "lo, I and the children thou hast given me", ( Isaiah 8:18 ) ; when all will be done as was commanded, and he undertook, and the report made accordingly. Ben Melech observes, that the "Keri", or marginal reading is,

``according to all which thou hast commanded me;''
as if he should say, there is nothing wanting of all that was commanded.

Ezekiel 9:11 In-Context

9 He answered me, “The sin of the people of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great; the land is full of bloodshed and the city is full of injustice. They say, ‘The LORD has forsaken the land; the LORD does not see.’
10 So I will not look on them with pity or spare them, but I will bring down on their own heads what they have done.”
11 Then the man in linen with the writing kit at his side brought back word, saying, “I have done as you commanded.”
