Ezekiel 25

* Judgments against the Ammonites. (1-7) Against the Moabites,

Edomites, and Philistines. (8-17)

#1-7. It is wicked to be glad at the calamities of any,

especially of God's people; it is a sin for which he will surely

reckon. God will make it appear that he is the God of Israel,

though he suffers them for a time to be captives in Babylon. It

is better to know Him, and to be poor, than to be rich and

ignorant of him.8-17 Though one event seem to the righteous and wicked, it is

vastly different. Those who glory in any other defence and

protection than the Divine power, providence, and promise, will,

sooner or later, be ashamed of their glorying. Those who will

not leave it to God to take vengeance for them, may expect that

he will take vengeance on them. The equity of the Lord's

judgments is to be observed, when he not only avenges injuries

upon those that did them, but by those against whom they were

done. Those who treasure up old hatred, and watch for the

opportunity of manifesting it, are treasuring up for themselves

wrath against the day of wrath.
