Ezekiel 12:14 Meaning and Commentary

Ezekiel 12:14

And I will scatter to every wind all that [are] about him to
help him
Either his bodyguards, the men of war that were with him when he fled, ( Jeremiah 52:7 ) ; or his auxiliary troops, the Egyptians, whom he had taken into his pay for his assistance: and all his bands:
or "wings" F23; the wings of his army. The Targum interprets it his army; these were all scattered from him when he was taken, ( Jeremiah 52:8 ) ; and I will draw out the sword after them:
which fled into Egypt, and other countries; so that they did not escape, though they went not into captivity; see ( Ezekiel 5:12 ) .

Ezekiel 12:14 In-Context

12 “Even Zedekiah will leave Jerusalem at night through a hole in the wall, taking only what he can carry with him. He will cover his face, and his eyes will not see the land he is leaving.
13 Then I will throw my net over him and capture him in my snare. I will bring him to Babylon, the land of the Babylonians, though he will never see it, and he will die there.
14 I will scatter his servants and warriors to the four winds and send the sword after them.
15 And when I scatter them among the nations, they will know that I am the LORD .
16 But I will spare a few of them from death by war, famine, or disease, so they can confess all their detestable sins to their captors. Then they will know that I am the LORD .”
